171011 – i am a creature 

i am a creature of multiple dimensions 

width 

depth

height 

time

space 

sound 

maybe it is why i have trouble reconciling myself in your world 

for the first time i feel as though i understand the disconnection 

the distinction 

my flaw is not my distance from your perception 

but my lack of empathy 

i am not different from you 

you are different from me

do you see it? 

that’s a mean question 

but irrelevant 

you are happy in your two dimensions 

i am curious in my many

171007 – where my head is at

this damn cold.

of all the times i should get a cold.

my body feels drained and hurts from coughing.

as if my sleep patterns weren’t disturbed enough.

in the midst of changes in my life.

in the midst of recording something to fix broken impressions.

in the midst of writing my first solo live show in some time.

i pause recordings to spit out phlegm.

(im sorry, i know it’s gross, but if you are going to read about my reality you get it all)

it is hard to focus on the notes i’ve charted.

a path through my own space and time.

i sway between my own emotions and those of others.

trying to create to reveal to relate my own statement.

glitches and heavenly choirs. 

times that don’t fit. 

things i must fix. 

resolutions to find. 

maybe i push myself harder than i have to.

but sometimes, i don’t feel as though i have a choice.

i have to make something.

something beautiful.

oh black francis, where is my mind!? 
i suspect the cold medicine has kicked in. i just talked to my plant, gary.

and he talked back. 

171003 – the ambient ping 

where does scalesofangels come from?

a lot of places. eno was probably my first exposure to ambient music, and i later discovered cage, subotnick and cuccurullo.

but somewhere in there, a friend hipped me to the ambient ping, and after my first, maybe fifteen years ago, i was hooked.

toronto’s experimental music scene would probably not be as prolific were it not for the work that jamie and scott have put into making sure that the ping was there for people who needed it.

props where props are due.

where is their key to the city?
