A very illuminating piece by Thought Broadcast's head cracked "head" went up this morning over at Self-Titled Mag. He goes over some of his favorite and most influential records & it's a lot to take in -- not to mention next to impossible to score a copy of any of these records. But thanks to modern technologies like Youtube everyone can peek a listen to all of these obscurantist masterpieces for free!! Anima Sound, Hijokaidan, N.G., Jurajium, John Duncan, R.N.A. Organism, The Decayes, Selten Gehorte Musik (featuring Dieter Roth), & Die Tödliche Doris all make the list & he writes extremely informative paragraphs for each of his selections.
BONUS FEATURE: "Thought Broadcasting" -- a poem by Claudia Krizay:
Silence is a silver ship Traveling at the speed of the darkness, Black holes are the edifices in which I Build my thoughts- Word by word, Each and every syllable forms upon my lips, And then broadcasted, aloud- Thoughts are killers- thoughts can harm- My thoughts can be heard from afar. Within this room I write my thoughts With a pen that is void of ink, or a pencil That has no lead, Invisible they are, but somehow, These thoughts are broadcasted aloud. Thoughts are killers thoughts control- My thoughts can be heard from afar. A silver ship with its sail to the wind, A wild horse that canters across vast terrain, or Pebbles that roll off of my fingertips, That splash into the creek, one by one, You can see, you can hear, as My thoughts, broadcasted aloud. My thoughts can be heard from afar. My thoughts are a flame that only I can quench. I am in control of what comes into my mind, As my hands build the world from The bricks of Time, My thoughts control the world. My thinking destroys those, whom I abhor, My thoughts control the downtrodden. Silence is a silver ship, or The dome beneath which I dwell- I build my edifice beneath this dome. No one dares to enter, as I have broadcasted a message to the world, My eyes order the world away; My thoughts are broadcasted aloud, A bad thought can destroy, as good ones Create and control, My thoughts control the world… Claudia Krizay
