"A mushroom lasts for only a very short time. Often I go in the woods thinking, after all these years, I ought finally to be bored with fungi. But, coming upon any mushroom in good condition, I lose my mind all over again. Supreme good fortune: we're both alive!"




These pieces were written for my audience on RateYourMusic. They're not as good as my more recent pieces, but I still think they're okay. The arbitrary distinction I make between pieces for the archive and pieces for the main page is whether they came before or after Indeterminacy - Ninety New Texts, because that was the first piece I wrote that wasn't designed for the specific cultural ecosystem of RateYourMusic. For some months hence I still published there exclusively (I hadn't made my own site yet), but with a few exceptions the pieces are no longer designed for that specific cultural context. All of these pieces are.
