Text by Paul Abbott:

"What in the possible environment of this impossible drum would be the language of a community (fleshy, photosynthetic or air) which is gathered by, sounded through, the gut of these musical ideas?"
This text inscribes a first part flux or fluctuations of this old future ground. A real, synthetic, notional language for an imagined community of organic life grown out from the site of these sounds:

actual breþynge fragrance
