Diffractions through: Thirst weep ransack (frailty) veer tide
Screen shot from Diffractions through
ransack (frailty) veer tide elegy is the successor to Intergrams, and was originally
published by Eastgate Systems. It is reissued in a multiplatform
version for download here.
Simultaneities in this work include polylinear "word nets" and
subdiagrams. (Note the screen shot on my home page is an extraction
from this work.)
I had been at work on this piece but a short time when the sad news
arrived that John Cage had died. John’s death transformed the
writing of this piece; I might perhaps have called it Re and Not Re
John Cage. At that time I found myself repeating a phrase that other
friends also found helpful: “John Cage: Not in memoriam but in use,
in continuous use.” This work represents an infinitesimal fragment
of that continuous use.
