The Joy Of Pi (Waterharp Sessions)

Transcribed musical performance/session…based on the single, long form version of ‘the ratio of a circle to its diameter’, i.e. ‘π’ (as base determinate for pitch, rhythm, and song form/structure).

In other words, Pi ratio as song form linear sequence.

“Being an irrational number, π cannot be expressed exactly as a common fraction, although fractions such as 22/7 and other rational numbers are commonly used to approximate π. Consequently its decimal representationnever ends and never settles into a permanent repeating pattern. The digits appear to be randomly distributed; however, to date, no proof of this has been discovered. Also, π is a transcendental number – a number that is not the root of any non-zero polynomial having rational coefficients. This transcendence of π implies that it is impossible to solve the ancient challenge of squaring the circle with a compass and straightedge.”

Three-part Pataphysical Inventions

“What distinguishes pataphysics from other artistic/philosophical movements that developed in the period from the 1890s through to the mid-twentieth century…is that it is not so much a movement as a collection of ideas. Since these ideas stand in counterpoint to science, rather than art, pataphysics has managed to sustain itself most effectively, finding fertile ground in any mind that thinks the objective truths of empiricism at least demand a little playful tweaking, if not wholesale reevaluation. Which is not to say that pataphysics is simply antiscientific, or even antirational. As always, the relationship between the parodistic aspects of pataphysics and the thing it parodies is complex: ironic, or even, as Marcel Duchamp would have said, meta-ironic. But we can say that pataphysics is subjective, privileging the particular above the general, the imaginary above the real, the exceptional above the ordinary, the contradictory above the axiomatic. Not that there is any choice in these matters: in pataphysics this is just the way things are.”

Reality Components & Vapor Trails

The body is how we know the universe. We often feel an emotion before we are aware of the thought that brought it about. By sensitizing the body to these feelings, it can lead us to alter habitual tendencies of the mind by seeing and then disengaging from these thoughts, which are as insubstantial as the steam from the dry ice of a cloud chamber. The reality component of the thought is the physical sensation that arises because of the thought, just like the vapor trail is the telltale sign that an atomic particle has been spun off from the needle of a cloud chamber.

12302011 Trios

Don’t ask me why, but these sets were somehow inspired after watching a series of musical out-takes from Jerry Lewis classic comedy films (‘The Typewriter Song’, Bigshot/Boardroom/Big band, Kitchen conductor, etc).

Some re-use of the material included in the previous 12272011 sets (without ‘errant tone’).

12272011 Trios

Musical machine guns of bent guitar fire at stealthy metal shadows on a Schoenberg serial battlefield . In between, tense periods of pure anxiety stroke at the minds edge punctuated by scurrying fretted mortars and harmonic grenades.

Sometimes it works…sometimes not. An ‘errant’ digital tone wound up in several bounces, per Eno’s ‘Honor thy mistake as intention’, I decided to leave it as a sort-of conceptual ‘pedal tone ‘…though I may revisit that decision when time allows;-)
