Luminous

Tiny rip in the structure

A little light blinking out

In otherwise absolute darkness

They are here somewhere

Stirred to move

By this unexpected change

Brightening

Luminous

New Points of Convergence EP

The Present Climate

A new EP from Points of Convergence has just been released.

Featuring my vocals and words alongside the music of the synth production of Metascrawl, the 5 track EP ‘The Present Climate’ is a dreamy lo-fi synth/spoken-word look at the internal and external world we’re living in today.

Have a listen and download for whatever you feel here https://pointsofconvergence.bandcamp.com/album/the-present-climate

Thanks.

Final Poem ‘Blinded’

My submission to the call for final poems by  Enclave at Entropy Mag is up at the following link:

#finalpoem from Robert W. Monk

‘Blinded’ is a response to: “If the world were to end next week, what is the final poem you write, the final poem you give away generously, treacherously, genuinely, fearfully, necessarily, beautifully?”

The new experimental film a poem heard from  Knowledge Variable films featuring words and vocalisation from myself has been released.

 

Directive

earth-from-outer-space-451x544

A fresh Spring-clean and a major Fall-out

These seasons turn to mush and are one and the same

Doppler effect caught on camera

Stuck in a loop from one to the next

A smile in the mirror says it’s time to think different

To turn off the ongoing repeats

To mute the direst of diatribes

And bring a new mic to the listening booth

Amp one and amp two broadcast the news

The state of this union; ugly and bruised

Loaded with trauma from point A to Z

Directive: remember, learn, don’t forget

Points of Convergence new EP

A new EP by Points of Convergence is out now on Bandcamp.

Points of Convergence

Featuring my spoken word vocals alongside Metascrawl’s music, a lot of thought and time went into the preparation. We’re very pleased with the result.

You can hear and download Points of Convergence at Bandcamp.

Echo Rescue

Echo Rescue is a new music project from Alberto Martinez (synth/production/vocals) and myself (words/vocals).

We’ve done one live appearance here in Sydney so far and have another coming up next month. (Details soon).

Eyes Lock

Eyes lock
Shut out and shut in
Generate a new password
And let the wonder begin

This morning starts off with the rain
Blistering sun-light will arrive on the train
We think
We hope
Gazing at the darkened arch
Murmuring with cogent intent

But thoughts remain clouded
Until eyes lock
Door opens an inch
Sunshine creeps in
Slowly, subtle
Testing the ground

Hot Squash

stock-photo-colorful-parrot-flying-with-wings-spread-isolated-on-white-626536802

Hot squash always helps
Or perhaps cordial would be ideal
For a day looking out the window

Why are there no painkillers in the rainforest?
Because the Parrots Eat ’em All
No they don’t
They just fly away and chatter in colour 

Why has the common cold not been cured yet?
Blame the wrestling master called Big Pharma
I remember Tunes and Lockets and that nice tasting
Cough mixture that made you feel slightly sozzled

Ruminate, meditate or detoxicate
Ambient chill music and tea
The future looks a little clearer
I can see it in the mirror
More hot squash needed, it says.
