"There was a screaming sound in each ear, and the difference between the two pitches was so narrow that the vibration was like running his fingernail along the edge of a new dime. In front of his eyes clusters of round spots were being born; they were the little spots that result when a photographic cut in a newspaper is enlarged many times. Lighter agglomerations, darker masses, small regions of uninhabited space here and there. Each spot slowly took on a third dimension. He tried to recoil from the expanding globules of matter. Did he cry out? Could he move?
The thin distance between the two high screams became narrower, they were almost one; now the difference was the edge of a razor blade, poised against the tips of each finger. The fingers were to be sliced longitudinally."

"I tend to be making music so often that i don’t just stop and listen enough. With this playlist i am going to take myself back to when I was discovering some of the music that inspired me to start recording music. There’s a lot of recording techniques being used in this playlist that I love; eventide harmonizers, tape edits, dub effects, Fairlights etc. but I choose these songs bc of the feeling and energy i get when i listen them. It's not too obscure and should be easy for anyone to enjoy."
