what the oud was doing


the oud was making sound behind the performance space
in front of the performance space behind the viewers
the magic of wires and speakers
the articulated magic of mixers and piezoelectrics
'i don't want to be known as a percussionist, but as an
oud player who utilizes percussion as if he's playing
pipa in the martial style,' 'then descending to mountains
and butterflies'
it's that same alien landscape spewing everywhere
it's that cold light, lcd/led, the light that kills things
nothing can grow in the magic alien cold-light killing field
the oud was saying that and the legs were dancing
the arms were dancing too

Pompeii (the proper name, pompeii)

video / thesis / name of the face

the face/body reconstitutes itself, dragging hermeneutics with it.
nothing remains but the rewryte of memory, continuous.
face/body neither dead nor alive, axed or picked or nubbed.
one hundred meters minimum, holding avatar by choreography,
or the gravitational pull of dance and tensor calculus.
because it generates from nothing, proceeds from annihilation,
unerased from previous aeons, themselves under erasure.
what human can never know, extent of space and time.
all bridges are broken to this image-land land-image,
which seems to insist on the human in the midst of substance.
