about

In the middle of the COVID-19 Pandemic, with my voice shot and unable to see an otolaryngologist, I focused my energy on an album of short "quips" from other artists that had caught and kept my attention over the years. At first, I had about 9 of these queued up, but in the end only three of them seemed to hold up. I also wanted this album to be listenable in one sitting and to have some stylistic musical continuity. After about 15 minutes, I felt the style was close to exhausting itself (especially for one sitting).

The "quips" come from John Cage, Paul Tillich and (paraphrased) from Antonio Machado.

TestTubeBaby Vancouver, British Columbia

Just walked
On a long slab of concrete
Probably hundreds of metric tons
To the store
Thinking about the similarities
And differences
Between me and a squirrel
