| This diagram represents
the 3 stages of "Conjure" over time:
- A...=The simultaneous existence of a multitude
of language-particles, dis-embodied speech, sonic fragments, momentary
rhythmic events, distant song, presence/ambience.
It is a stew of virtual utterances (utter dances). It corresponds
to the beginning of the Universe as Calvino conjures it in Cosmicomics.
- Included in Section A are:
language fragments in Japanese, Welsch, English; momentary song elements;
thick noise slabs; and a bouncing, broken-up text.
- B...= the energetic dispersion/ejection of
specific particles (from Section A) into particular, rhythmic events
of a long enough duration to be perceived as 'song' (with foreground/background,
energy levels, density layers); the song evolves...
- Included in section B are:
3 tracks of English-language voice singing, "what a line was, straight
or curved, or even a dot, or a protuberance, or a cavity."; a rhythmic-pulse
on 2 tracks. Then 4 changing voice loops which fade into section C.
- C...= The coalescing of the evolving "energetic
song events" into a new, unexpected "mature" galaxy, filled with narrative,
sensuality, languages, confusion, chance events, destiny, pleasure,
history, laughter, meaning and love...
- Included in section C are:
a more narrative text fragment; longer particles of meaning; fragmentary
songs; short outbursts; all on 6 tracks
