Album Notes
I started reading the word frequency results from a novel I have written into the microphone and it was not too long before the words grouped themselves into sentences of poetry as I read. A word frequency generated list is a list of words in your novel. My list was sorted with which words were mentioned the most in the novel to those that were mentioned the least. I started reading it as just one word at a time but then sentences formed from one word to the next. I thought I would share it with you because it starts to sound like Beatnik Poetry, which is sometimes free verse poetry. To the song, I added an uncharacteristic picture of myself wearing a sweat rag hat; it is as close to Beatnik as I had.
It turned out to be almost 55 minutes long and I hope you enjoy it. It has kind of a dark quality to it. And if you think of it as just a hierarchical list of most frequent words to least it is kind of comical.
