2 Poem
stream track The Strange Metamorphosis of Animals
On the sticky Sunshine Coast
Fat bats, fruit-fed
Flap low through palms
On balmy nights,

Shadows of darkness deeper
Than the night’s black
That burrow into the secret folds
Of palms’ thick skirts.

In Wellington’s windy winter dusk
Through moaning pines
Crowing magpies soar and shriek
Their pilfering intent,

They spread their wings
And fly too close
As their steely eyes
Eye mine up for size.

At an East Cape beach
In fearful sea, alone
For beyond the reef I've seen
The charcoal stingrays glide,

Winging their way
Through waters, dark
Yet trailing longer
Through doubt-edged dreams.

The flicker of these creatures haunt
With morph of ancient flight,
Like Escher’s lines of blackened shapes
In merge from rays to bats to birds.

  I really like your POEM track ... a masterpiece! Wonderful to hear the bats fly ... they almost sound like recorded from a bat detector ... did you use one, or have you studied bat recordings for this track? ... Charlotte's voice and recitation is also wonderful ....
3 Film
stream track The Man-Machine
Metropolis: In one of the iconic moments of the film, the inventor Rotwang’s Man-Machine is transformed to give her the appearance of the resistance leader Maria, whilst the hero Freder is trapped within the lower levels of the house. Arcs of electricity surround the robot as Rotwang pulls various levers and Maria lies on a nearby table encased in a glass cylinder.

  Intriguing sounds in this piece. The choice of reverb density and size is superb. I like how you fade the droning, low end part out and leave the song with the bell-like part.
4 Location Volume 2
stream track Tranz Metro
Wellington, New Zealand
The Tranzmetro section of railway is part of the main
trunk line that runs through New Zealand's North Island connecting Auckland with Wellington. Tranzmetro
provides the Wellington region with a valuable public transport system, providing the outlying suburbs and
neighbouring districts with a direct route to the central city. All sounds were recorded during the brief journey
from the suburb of Tawa into Wellington.

  This resonates with me deeply....probably because I am a fan of dark, obscure, and abstract music or ambient sounds. The reverb depth is just how I like it. I can't quite pinpoint what imagery this conjures for me, which I believe is a good thing. It is nebulous. Off hand, I think of a dark, deep abyss of mystery...existential angst and dread provoked by absolute freedom, and the terror of realizing choice in a world "beyond good and evil". Or is this really an ode to nothingness, reflections on one's own non-being....
