This is a reissue debut cassette released in December 2023 in a limited edition of 12 by Corum, the American pseudo-jungle psychedelic label Psychic Sounds. (Originally released in 100)

Contains 6 indigenous strange beats that are so psychedelic that they will make you dizzy.

*If you would like a digital sound source, please feel free to contact us.

The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

"During my travels and tours from 2007 to 2010, I accumulated a wealth of sketches and ink drawings based on my experiments in collaging texts gleaned from news scraps, literary notes, and dream accounts. In particular, I wanted to use the method of ``cutting out the past and the future at the same time.'' I contacted poets through the theory that if you cut out a line of words, you can hear a voice as a coded message that has a special meaning for the person who cut it out, or through the medium of a collage of words. Listen to new dimensions and visualize the findings in cinematic variations. The hybrid enterprise of confusing and redistributing message meaning was left to chance. Two or more messages assembled according to this strategy on a page revealed other hidden messages that its components were careful not to convey. As a result, the text takes on a narrative development, initially enigmatic but ultimately clear and often foreboding. It is a work of deciphering, an essential mystification. The music is mapped around the essence of the text that becomes the picture. It gives an impression of déjà vu, and at the same time gives a sense of what is to come. It acts as an agent of simultaneous integration and dissolution, forcing alternative paths on the eye and thought. Never Use the Same Door Twice is a collection of early, chopped-up permutations of these recordings. The text score and music give the space a real projected dimension. The space-time of the text is distorted and starts again forever. It never ends. It does not remain unfinished forever, but is open to all possibilities for the interaction of text with photomontage, hieroglyphic graphics, and scriptural invention. "

Artist statement:

" This is the soundtrack to a narrative called 'Never Use the Same Door Twice.'

During travels & tours from 2007-2010, I had accumulated a great number of sketches and ink drawings that drew on experiments with a collage of text collected from news scraps, literature notes and dream entries. Curiously I wanted to use the method of 'cutting into the past/future simultaneously' through the theory that if you cut the word lines you will hear their voices as code messages with special meaning for the cutter, or contacted poets through a medium as a collage of words. To overhear a new dimension and then turn the found results into images in cinematic variation. The mixed business of disarranging and redistributing the meaning of the message was left to chance. Two - or more - messages, once assembled according to this strategy on the page, revealed another hidden message, which its components were careful not to communicate. The resulting text took a narrative turn, enigmatic at first but ultimately explicit and often premonitory. An operation of decoding and essentially mystification. The music is mapped around the essences of the text creating the pictures. There is an impression of deja-vu, as well as an indication of what's to come. Acting as an agent of simultaneous integration and disintegration, it imposes another path on the eyes and on thought. Never Use the Same Door Twice is a collection of recordings of these early cut-up permutations. The 'text-score' with the music give the true dimension projected into space. The space-time of the text is distorted; perpetually rebeginning. It is never ending - not that it remains unfinished forever but that it is open to all possibilities that can bring about the interaction of texts and graphic and scriptural inventions of photographic montages and hieroglyphics ."
