about

Rock Molar - take a walk down Resolution Drive (Ocean Reef), when you get to the coast take a right along the brown path. There are rocks that look like molars, climb down to see stingrays.

Swamp Gospel - emotional solace in night time swamp wanderings, recording biophonies in North Perth, finding friends in plants.

Bounty Migration Path - share house migrations, 218 Charles St...many people lives crossing, traces of old friends and relationships.

Communication - wanting to speak with you so much...a tribute to bright orange beacons of Telstra phone boxes and home phone numbers we no longer use.

Reed - originally called 'lil macaroni dance'

TV Trap - We are lost to the dictatorship of sight, neglecting taste and touch..ipads are boring in tactile terms. Fur on a fruit on the other hand...

Tropical Hypeisms - from Caroline Garcia's work of the same title.

Lonely Ghost - does anyone witness the lonely ghost?

Rains in Syllables - words can water

Ricochet - ups and downs all the the bloody time

Track Name: Swamp Gospel
we wander through the fog
through the spirits of the night
rises like incense of the earth
while we try to make sense of this life

see that tennis court, those manicured lawns?
that used to be a food bowl, now its gone
and i'm homesick
calling out like this for
something that i never knew but know i miss

secret, sacred places we've covered up
wetland traces, sing that swamp gospel loud

intricate biophonies spill out into the street
underneath the road rivers, living water seep

see that tennis court, those manicured lawns?
that used to be a food bowl, now its gone
and i'm homesick
calling out like this for
something that i never knew but know i miss

secret, sacred places we've covered up
wetland traces, sing that swamp gospel loud
Track Name: Bounty Migration Path
i stare into the sun
and blink three times
stare down at my shoes
and click my heels three times

i leave my window open, hoping
that someone flies in
and the back door unlocked

what if this house lies across a migration path
snakes maybe withered across the porch
and hibernated, where i lay my head

i found a black cockatoo feather
on my neighbour's driveway
and i thought about pathways and lines that we've intersected
lines that we've built over
and we think maybe - they never existed...

what if this house lies across a migration path
snakes maybe withered across the porch
and hibernated, where i lay my head
Track Name: Communication
communication
got to be patient
info highway choking
land line broken
i could seal it with a kiss
text it to you real late
it could be a hit or miss
without me to intonate

ima put it up on a blog tho
ima keep it down on the download
ima release it online tho

it takes time
even though we live in the same post code
wanna send the messages i give
down the street where you live

communication
got to be patient
info highway choking
land line broken
uncomfortable like stiletto
take off my shoes and i let go
stoop on the porch and the night glows
dial up and login
press play to begin
so hard to forget
that eye to eye net

ima put it up on a blog tho
ima keep it down on the download
ima release it online tho

it takes time
even though we live in the same post code
wanna send the messages i give
down the street where you live
Track Name: Lonely Ghost
i roam like a lonely ghost
Track Name: Rains in Syllables
people
(and it rains in syllables)
people
(and it rains in syllables)
Track Name: Ricochet
every minute, expands endlessly
into oblivion of eternity
every second echoes in my chest
I'm losing you over time to an emptiness

quick get out the way of the ricochet
that back and forth
between hopelessness and hope

everyday my heart tell me the truth
how u deserve so much more than what i gave to u
every atom, every part of me
wants to heal your pain
please forgive me

quick get out the way of the ricochet
that back and forth
between hopelessness and hope

i have a seed planted in my heart
underneath the dark
waiting there
i water it
and sing it songs
try to coax it out with the love i know
with your love i know, i knew so well
sometimes it shows when we look in to each other's eyes
and for a moment i feel the sun
it feels so pure
it is the love, the love I've known
the love i love
ur love i love
