"Begin anywhere." ~ John Cage

I fell in love with music via the guitar around the age of 14. Since then, music has been the one pervasive dimension of experience that has never left my life, no matter what other ventures and paths have come my way.

Since then, my moments have been endlessly fascinated with the interior and exterior, individual and collective threads of sound winding their way through from my early exposure to my dad's Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings, and Ahmad Jamal records, through inheriting my big sister's Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd albums, and now into my own ludicrously large and diverse music library in all formats.

So after 25 years of absorbing and working with the music of others, I now truly step into that river of music with my own compositions. (It took me a little while jump in, perhaps, but I'm counting on being a late bloomer!)

To me, music always exists in a space, in a context, and as a texture of phenomena. It is my sincere effort to find the sound of that space, that context, that phenomena.

To borrow the words of contemporary music critic, Alex Ross: "In all, I approach music not as a self-sufficient sphere but as a way of knowing the world."

Well, this is a wonderful surprise for the weekend! I contributed a track to this John Cage remix project (as Noctilusense), and it was just released today -- only a day after Cage's 101st birthday.

Thanks for asking me to participate, piper_ben (https://www.facebook.com/piperbenmusic)! It was a fun challenge, and I am proud to be part of it. Cheers!

Ghostly Night-Shining Clouds Get Their Glow from Meteor Smoke

"...[T]hey form at the edge of space where the air pressure is verging on vacuum-state."

Hmmmm...I wonder what THAT sounds like...

news.yahoo.com Rare and mysterious clouds that are so bright they can be seen at night have mystified people since they were first observed more than a century ago, but scientists have now discovered a key cosmic ingredient for these night-shining clouds: "smoke" from meteors as they burn up in the Earth's atmosph...
