about

Hums + Haws Chicago, Illinois

Basement mining for sonic gold: a trashy sound polishes the one beside it.

I captured all the sounds I could and put them into a Tascam 58 tape machine. I sent waves flying into the air:::

I also play in House Sounds

Track Name: Obliterated Space
something turned down your volume
attenuated your page
it was something on your person
obliterated space

how could I find a way
when that something is my way?

i'd reject it because it worked
i would not invite it on you

i miss my home, but i'm not even gone
i miss this place, but i'm still around
i'll say farewell to leaving here
Track Name: Wondering Home
wondering back home
the home that's in your head
where your mind resides
there is a home for all of us
the home for us

would you ever really want to walk away from it all?
and flush it down?
the venerable walkaway again to again
the venerable walkaway flush it down

back from holiday this time of year
when everything's turning from browns to grays
the summer is over and I am much the wiser
until the next time...
Track Name: Eyes to Eyes
open your eyelids to gaze upon the globe
access the memories embedded in your bones
surrounded in silence the waves impact the mind
watching the watcher, osmosis of the times

i am responsive reflecting actions of the times
watching the watcher to make the paradigm
i am despondent reflecting actions of the time
waiting for something to push you toward the finish line

toe to toe
waist to waist
hand in hand
arm in arm
cheek to cheek
nose to nose
eyes to eyes
head to head
mind to mind
soul to soul
Track Name: One Truth
my heart mourns in hallways
in the attic lies my head
literal extremities sync tightly by its side
my feet my knees churn on forever forward
i'll shove off the sheet of white ice moving from the mainland

if there is one truth
the truth is always changing
if there is one true thought
it's the thought that's always shaping

i've tasked myself with living
appearing like i'm not even trying
or seeking to the point that it hurts quite a lot
while the cogs in mind
wind slowly down the spine
and my feet churn onward forever forward

if there is one truth
the truth is always changing
if there is one true thought
it's the thought that's always shaping
Track Name: Alcohol
alcohol,
you are not the most abused of them all
it's like watching your tv
believing only hearsay
letting your ideas hang out to dry
society decides just what kinds of vices
the kinds of vices that you can succumb to
what controls the population
numbing your sensations
consuming yourselves out from the inside
day after day hour after hour
the minutes combine, no time to rewind yourself
the pacification and mind manipulation
if the profits are right then
please, sir, sit down
alcohol, oh alcohol
Track Name: Yesterday
yesterday was now
yesterday i was me
but now i've become myself
graduating to today

yesterday flew right past today
the great sea of passing the hours and hours
until tomorrow will soon be in the past
when tomorrow comes

where is my today?
how was my day?
i was in another state of mind
another place in time
when tomorrow comes
Track Name: Mind Home
i am my home
i am a part of it all
i am mind home
in a silo
i am off

too late is so old
moving out
trying to believe in
something larger than
my own mind
not yours, but us
i am off
Track Name: Bw LightShade
between the light and the shade even i don't know why
how it lies is in your eyes inside the very notion

to look at life in a way and see that everything is fine
believe what is in your mind
floundering in notions
to find the very notions
reciting quotes inline with what you're on

we are one ocean
we are one ocean apart
blinded by the ocean
because the ocean is us
we are one ocean apart

between time and space i'll choose the time
to decide upon my life before i go waste it
to find the line is the place each and every time
occupy your mind
feeling like you matter
not only made of matter
feeling like it matters who you are

we are one ocean
we are one ocean apart
blinded by the ocean
because the ocean is us
we are one ocean apart
