voice and inverted dynamics


inverted dynamics foregrounds background/body sounds, parasite
and interference, abject re/constitution of sonic production;
azure sings thru her sickness, pauses filled by screams 'out in'
the street below; her voice loses sonority, breaks down into
gravel/grating coughs and gaspings, she makes it thru the song,
the someone screaming has moved on, sounds of traffic, body; the
song is marriage to language, language broken by sickness; we
remember the catastrophic and fragile peak of goodness in the
midst of what might go wrong, returned and foregrounded here as
parasitic content. enjoy, despair, enjoy.
