How Wang Fô was saved

For some months now- Ale has been intent on this story of “How Wang Fô was Saved”  and he found inspiration to record an Italian translation of the story accompanied by music made specifically for this creation.

I was honored to be asked to create an English translation of the story- which Ale also created accompaniment for.

I had not read the story before the recording.  I wanted to test my voice with the words- and once I began reading out loud- I said: “screw it- start the recording.”

You are hearing the story unfold for me for the very first time.  I am not exactly sure how it will weave.  There are moments you can hear my voice fall because I am shocked at the revelations the text is painting.

I was left with some beautiful insights and contemplations.  I hope this story can do the same for you.   Please join us  as we share the story of:

How Wang Fô was saved

What do you know you know that you remember?

Microcosm-  Inception- You

While in the womb, you just grew and developed and thought whatever thoughts developing souls think cushioned in a vitreous bubble

Listening to the voices outside of yourself as you are jumbled and tumbled around by your incubator, the love of your creator holds you still and yet, not

You didn’t consciously think “I should grow an arm right now”, while your mother craved pickles and puked at the smell of salmon, or laughed at a joke she once told, and then forgot and told again

She didn’t think about her loss or change of appetite as anything other than a sort of synthesis where you were able to show your first impressions of the world, which were merely reflections of the last one you left

Connected yet disconnected by a few stops from your last departure

As a Mother, she, just kind of dealing with it.  And hoped for the best.  “I don’t care what it is- as long as it is healthy!  Ten fingers!  Ten toes.”

She didn’t sit to manifest you, but rather said, “So it is, I guess this will do.”

The Mother Knows, that these impressions can last longer than a lifetime and the purging of herself in the openness of newness is proof.  Suddenly a new entity, little-me arrives!

To some, on a sunny day and to others a rainy night.

In each of us, there is the reflection of the Mother, for we could not exist without her.

But in each Mother, there is a reflection of eternity, and she graciously imparts that upon us without request.  It is a shock for all parties, and a strange blessing without a manual.

The impression is beyond permanent, it is in the genetics and all of the beautiful unfoldings that appear to be effortless

 

 

 

 

The life of the Third Way

There is a feeling the feelers, feel as they stumble forward while standing still- being blown by the unseen wind.

Distilled Silence

You can only find two ways and, ultimately, neither is it. Only the third way is but the third way is the only way that you cannot search to find, it can only find you. Then, being shrewd, you pick up on this secret and you begin to look for a way to be found… hence, one of the two ways creep up in disguise… so then you notice your own hack and cheat and just stand there in a now oblivious space, feeling nothing much but fear… You got no ways, no plans… nothing you devise does anything (but the opposite, as it seems)… and that which you want, you don’t know when, how or if at all it will ever grace you. You don’t know when, how or if ever the third way will find you … then you start to think about the third way.. what is…

Non ero io

-my lost tapes

Avrei dovuto scrivere i giorni scorsi, ma le cose delle quali avrei voluto scrivere mi tenevano lontano da questo. E adesso non ho molta voglia di raccontare. Capita appositamente in questi giorni la soluzione del piccolo grande difetto del blog, del quale non mi ero reso conto per anni, i pulsanti di iscrizione che non erano stati inseriti a vista. Giorni di disvelamento o di maschere, giorni di correzione o rinsaldamento della farsa. La gente si sposta in copiose carovane e segue entusiasta il carnevale. Fra uno scherzo e l’altro anche a questo giro non comprendono che va in scena il loro mascheramento, del dramma profondo sotto al quale gattonano vita dopo vita, fra lacci filanti e frammenti inconciliabili di vite che nascono e tornano in pezzi. Le maschere si burlano degli sbadati.

Invece, è il periodo di maggiore espansione e potenza di tutti coloro che hanno mantenuta elevata l’ispirazione…

Recent Musical Magic

Alessandro has again outdone any expectation I may have toward his Mastery of sound.

My part- at first appearance seems somewhat meaningless- just recording what would be overlooked as mundane sounds of normal life- at times with a little extra manipulation.  It doesn’t seem like a symphony.

It sounds like a person walking- or a train sitting at the station.  It sounds like wind in a microphone and the chime on the convenience store door.  It sounds like an audible story where the only context and relation happens synaptically- charging the heart by overlapping imagination and experience.   That is all I do.

Then, I send these files of sounds to Ale- and he embraces the sonic story in his vibratory flux.  He modulates and gives structure to my foundation. He weaves the fabric and smooths the edges.  All of a sudden- the story becomes rich, a new memory can be made, the synapses fire with a longing and a nostalgia- foreign and familiar.

Without further ado- here are our most recent collaborations.   Enjoy!  Please share!  (Best through headphones, and closed eyes- it is a sonic journey after all!)

 

 

PIE #4 : Frequency and Perception

Much like the slit experiment measuring the patterns of photons moving through a barrier, observation changes pattern.  Come along with me as I explore perception and frequency as it applies to life, growth and change/adaptation.

Music by Alessandro Muresu from his album Inexistant World -https://alessandromuresu.bandcamp.com/album/this-inexistent-world-lp2018

Why do you do what you do? What’s really running the show?

Check out my podcast Emancipation Station with my friend and co-host Jomo (Jordan)- some yummy ear nuggets to be shared!

The Emancipation Station

In today’s edition of Emancipation Station, Madge & Jomo discuss ‘templates’. What are they and how are they secretly in control of everything you do in your life?

Learn how the ‘templates’ you’ve been exposed to thru your life, control the daily choices you are currently making and the results you’re getting in your life.

If you want to change your life, you must be willing to change the templates that are guiding it.

Gain some insights into how to do this in today’s episode.

Whispers In The Mist- Audio Exploration #3

No words- just a soundscape for you to let loose your imagination.  Grab a pen and paper and draw or write for fifteen minutes, and see where the sounds take you.  I created this track with some editing of older sound files- thereby taking some old things and making them new and absolutely different from their original form.

I challenge you to take this fifteen minutes to expand your creativity- it will change your day.

If you take my challenge- Post your writing or drawings in the comments and share the fruit of your inspiration, but above all, enjoy the process!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
