Man is an artifact designed for space travel. He is not designed to remain in his present biologic state any more than a tadpole is designed to remain a tadpole. ~William S. Burroughs
An impromptu, just for fun, improvisational experimental piece made using ACID Xpress 7.

New ideas, new perspectives, new ways of living can add vitality to existence; when we embark upon new adventures it reminds us that we are alive. . . and that life does not have to be squandered in drudgery. I try to do something new each day.
As such, I conceived poetry from a new perspective. How else can we express poetry, if we don’t use the written or spoken word? Motion picture. I imagined that I could use video as poetry, rather than words, allow the images to express and convey meaning. I felt this added a new level of sensation and ambience to poetry. Suddenly, poetry is alive. It is in motion, new senses are involved, for a fuller experience of meaning.
“Soar” was filmed in HD, select 720p or 1080p for optimal viewing.

We feel our enviroment.
Our whole world is filled with sound, various frequencies sensed by a variety of organisms. However, is it necessary for the presence of a sense organ in order for there sound to exist? It’s like if a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? All sounds are sounding at every moment, and those soundings interact with you. Like sunlight, they bounce off you, wrap around you, hit you, go through you. Well, what does that mean? When one atom hits another atom, what happens? This atom hits that atom, and those atoms start talking to each other. They communicate. They start gossiping and telling each other stuff and sharing information. Well, what happens to those atoms? What are they doing now? Now, they are borrowing from each other. They are trading stuff…all entangled with one another. And they, together, are something else all together. Something new. This new body is not this atom or that atom or this atom and that atom, it is something…else. A new vibration, a new frequency. . .multiplied within all the rest that makes you a you.
Sit back, put on your headphones*. . . listen and experience the spatial sensation.

We perceive our world through sensory input. What happens to that world when only one perception receives input? Soundscapes: a new idea, currently under development, as I experiment with the ways poetry, stories and other forms of creative writing can be conveyed using only our perception of sound.
The story is binaural, so I recommend wearing headphones for the full effect. In the spirit of Hallowe’en, I give you “Binaural Eerie” a trip through the experience of another world.
WARNING: There will be more of these.
