Cuz - like all things in Cyberspace - it is Chaos in Action ;) ---|-----|--------|-------------|---------------------| The German word for "noise" _Geräusch_ is derived from _rauschen_ "the sound of the wind," related to _Rausch_ "ecstasy, intoxication" hinting at some of the possible aesthetic, bodily effects of noise in music. Scientist Phil Uttley "said the music of a black hole could be called improv." In "comparison to a specific artist or style, he said the late Greek composer Iannis Xenakis. "Scientists say music is ubiquitous in Nature (Earth itself) and shows up in the arrangements of the planets, in seascapes, and even in our brainwaves." 'Flicker Noise' - Nature's inaudible rhythms & patterns are in everything - heartbeats, climate change, X-ray outputs, in interplanetary magnetic fields.... "When you're trying to do something you should feel absolutely alone, like a spark in the blackness of the universe." -Iannis Xenakis "It's the greatest achievement to be able to hear the sounds of the world, all the sounds, as part of some vast musical composition with no beginning or end, but infinite nuance, endless layers and parts in the score... Your ears are trained when you can take it all in, not just what you like to hear." - David Rothenberg "Any sufficiently advanced music is indistinguishable from noise" (after Arthur C. Clarke's aphorism that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguisable from magic.)" - John Chalmers, in email response to the quote _The Difference between Music and Noise is all in your Head_ "... simple, chaotic, anarchic and menacing.... This is what people of today have lost and need most - the ability to experience permanent bodily and mental ecstasy, to be a receiving station for messages howling by on the ether from other worlds and nonhuman entities, those peculiar short-wave messages which come in static-free in the secret pleasure center in the brain." - Slava Ranko (Donald L. Philippi)
