    Recorded in rural AR, AK, and MT, these ten heterotopias, divorced from locational specificity and the chains of time, represent the mutable nature of our public spaces. Electric guitars, synths, and tasteful drums pedal a blissful bike through the mind.

Notes from Particle City
October 2012

spy only dimly as hard barrier
through which to pass civilization and
you are accustomed

for secret lovers, for restless youth
determined homeless fallen change

surreal tedium
broadening horizon
trees are non-native
municipal codes, neighborhood desires, landscaping fads,
outlived by all of them.

a collection mutable
stories, facts, articles, AND MAPS

between the living
venue hiding, playing

life's necessities, and luxuries
buried artifacts

thought to be networks

information and ambiguity transmitters

space traverse boarded narrowly
missed arterial, slowly carrying where
they want to be

where they do not
