This is a project I had queued up for a while. I really loved fractaldust's poem, and asked deeasherself to do a reading because I could hear her voice saying the words as I was reading it.
The poem itself reminded me a lot something Joe says in his "Why do I hit RECord?" video that has become one of my favorite quotes: “Records are a way for me to know that I am there. Because otherwise I could just, sort of, exist here in my own head, and…how would I ever really know that I was there at all?”
I've always thought about the things we leave behind-the records, the memories, the photographs...but lately I've been thinking about how, just like everything else, they eventually disappear. Films deteriorate. Photographs fade. Digital files become corrupted. So maybe this is a bit of a reflection on that. Or it's just 3:30 in the morning and I'm thinking too much again. :o)
Either way, enjoy and remix away.
