Track Name: Harem of Inquisitive Females (R. Curtis)
Indispensable and abundant
Highly sensitive and energetic
Requiring much to sustain their activities
A critical period, with irreversible effects
Is it chance that water is the origin of all things?

Managing over a course of two billion years
To internalize the ocean
Bonding, bathing their cells in a warm, intuitive fluid
That keeps them alive
The bifidus factor
Latent and over.
Penetrated by the ancient, penetrating the future

Behavior occurs in response to antecedents
Behavior leads to consequences
Latent and overt.
Within, without
Penetrated, penetrating
Is it chance that water is the origin of all things?
Track Name: Tentative Terrain (R. Curtis)
Although the Musica Ficta Suite (named after the place where the composer supposedly vanished) is no longer played; there are others, phantoms, yanked about and torn asunder, mere fragments of telemetry; proceeding from the recognition that sound and light are responses to vibrations.

There is felt a dichotomy of harmony, of being pushed too far; accomplished by the sub-conscious mind attuned to the absolute pitch of tone-color; the government of vibration and motion.

It seems possible to take almost any process, and one by one, add or subtract from it a long series of compositional schools; to compose (or re-compose) all the orders of possible permutations of imagination, forming a succession of diversified sounds.

The question of compositional harmony has often been fraught by riots and mob justice.

There have been many movements so overwhelmingly beautiful that were never found, or were destroyed…
Perhaps they never existed.
