I wrote a poem/thought for today:
It is peculiar how we have built a society upon structure.
Music on Structure.
The safe predictability that does not exist has been sold into our childrens ears.
Re-breeding until robots become ore free than man.
Now we look at NEW music, Well what is NEW music.
Displacement is trending, Dis associative sounds are trending.
And it all leads back to the origin of it’s domain, a never ending cycle. Watch as history repeats itself.
