Horripilation

Horripilation! A whole mess of stuff today: sine waves at the piano; tarot cards for professional advancement; the physiologic impact of poetry!

 

Listen to "Horripilation!" on Spreaker.

 

 

My youtube channel  Andrew Kaiser - YouTube always look for Andrew Kaiser and ZenGlop...otherwise you find a more successful composer also called Andrew Kaiser.

Exegesis on 35 sentences

In 1969, Sol Lewitt published an article titled sentences on conceptual art.  In the winter of 2017, I set about to write a commentary on each sentence.  I wrote roughly one page of handwritten notes for each sentence.  In this episode, I read first the Lewitt sentence and then my commentary.  In relatively short order, the material becomes part of my ongoing exploration of the imagination; the nature of the creative idea; and my own writing process.
