Album Notes
This album is intended to be listened to in several sections:

Part I: 1 Outside the Wire; 2 Qui Vive, Old Friend; 3 Ghost in a Burning House
Part II: 4 Balloons in the Cathedral; 5 Gas-Can Walk; 6 A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatta
Part III: 7 Burning Puppet Show; 8 Girl from Taured
Part IV: 9 Shiva's Proxy; 10 City of the Future of Tomorrow; 11 Nice Elegy, 12 A New Mission

"Qui Vive" means "Long Live Who?" as a challenge when entering a city, asking for one's political allegiance.
"Taured" is a possibly fictional country, or perhaps a country on an alternate Earth.
"A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatta" refers to the painting by Georges Seurat.

This album continues the evolution of my use of heuristic and conceptual techniques, such as layered permutation, serial generation of dense textures, modular techniques, harmonic polarization, and so forth. Mostly I make it up as I go along, but just mention this here to indicate that I am aware of the technical and theoretical scope inferences and associations of the work.

Despite the programmatic suggestion of the titles, the political message is this: that the discipline to engage and uplift the listener is always superior in value than the temptation to pollute and pervert art in the service of some ideology. The more pervasive and ingrained the ideology, the more disciplined must be those who would rise above it. This, of course, cannot be popular in the current political climate. I only mention it because it "goes without saying" (to grownups), and count myself lucky to have retained some exterior viewpoint to the great red tide of culture of the last several decades. May Joseph Fux follow you to the end of your days...
