SIDE B...
A twenty-six-minute experimental ambient spoken word piece based on the extended “Silence” sample and cutup text “Surrendered to My Function”.

The piece was constructed over several lengthy sessions using a processed version of “Silence” created using the Deconstructor VST; the same VST was used to process a number the other samples used in the mix. The spoken word piece was processed by the Ambience VST.

I included four samples from Freesound Project, an online open source repository of copyright-free samples:

80s modular synth simulation
CD Walkman function
Cardboard factory machine
iPod functions

“Surrendered to My Function”: Christened "unlanguage" during an online chat, this material is an attempt to explore words, the ends of words and what lies beyond the end of what can be done with words. Taking randomly generated text strings, processing them radically and then re-integrating the results at a point far from that of their origin, unlanguage aspires to create a sense of future language... more

SURRENDERED TO MY FUNCTION

I WANT SOMETIMES/
WHAT IS TRUTH/
WHAT IS BEYOND THESE WORDS/
SOME SAY SILENCE/
I SAY NEITHER SILENCE NOR NOISE///NEITHER/
THAT MUST BE RELATED TO THE FACT THAT THIS IS THE CASE/
THERE IS NO I/
AND EVEN IF THERE IS,
I DOES NOT ACTUALLY WANT VERY MUCH ANYMORE/
EXACTLY/
I WANT SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO/
WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME - ANY OF US -
HAPPENS UNSEEN AND UNTHOUGHT///
LETS TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT YES,
IT IS A VOIDING/
YOU ARE AN ATTRACTIVE FORM OF WORDS,
YES PEOPLE OFTEN
SAY YOU ARE GOOD WITH WORDS/
WHAT ARE YOU FINE, HOW ARE YOU FINE,
HOW ARE YOU FINE, HOW ARE YOU GOOD WITH YOU/
ARE AN ATTRACTIVE FORM
OF WORDS, YES PEOPLE OFTEN SAY GOOD YOU ARE SO RIGHT/
WHAT SHOULD I WANT/
VERY LITTLE/
SUCH IS THE ESCAPE TO YOUR TRUE FUNCTION AND PURPOSE IT ELUDES YOU/
I AM LESS AND LESS/
I HAVE NOT MASTERED
IS THE ESCAPE TO YOUR
TRUE FUNCTION AND PURPOSE IT ELUDES YOU/
I AM LESS AND LESS/
IS WHAT REMAINS USEFUL FUNCTIONAL?
THAT IS THE ESSENCE OF IT/
WHAT IF WE CAN NOT FIGURE
AND THAT IS IT, A VOIDING YOU ARE WITH WORDS/
WHAT AM I GOOD WITH WORDS,
ITRY TO OUTWIT MYSELF WITH THEM/ TO ESCAPE/
THAT MUST BE RELATED TO
THE FACT THAT YES, IT IS A VOIDING OF POSSIBILITIES/
THAT IS IT, A VOIDING/
I AM LESS AND LESS/ IS WHAT REMAINS USEFUL
FUNCTIONAL?
THAT IS THE ESSENCE OF IT/
YOU HAVE BEEN A MASTER ESCAPIST ALL
OF YOUR LIFE
THE ONE ESCAPE YOU HAVE BEEN A MASTER ESCAPIST
YOU FOR WEEKS/
HAVE YOU MISSED ME TO BE ANYTHING
IT IS A LOVE
MIXED WITH A SENSE OF LOSS/

HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL SOMETIMES BEMUSED/
AT OTHERS,
SURRENDERED TO PUSHING THE LIMITS OF WORDS///
WHAT CAN BE DONE WITH WORDS/
WHAT ARE YOU SOMETIMES/
I DOES NOT ACTUALLY WANT VERY LITTLE/
EXACTLY YOU WANT
BECAUSE THERE IS NO I AND EVEN IF THERE IS,
I DOES NOT ACTUALLY WANT
VERY MUCH ANYMORE/ EXACTLY/
THAT IS NOT WORDS/ THAT REMINDS ME
OF WHEN YOU SAID THAT YES YOU SLIP INTO
A VERY LAX AND AIMLESS STATE
