See noises as synthesis, discharges deriving from its concentration
in one point. Their inner, hidden melody is the story of
life-flow - organic either inorganic - on stage at a given instant.
In their fluid nature some sounds get to gravel, perturb the woof
that binds things to each other, stealing something for themselves.
They turn into symbols, their faculty is to evocate scenes.

Everyone tries to arrange memories in images, smells or sounds,
to let them escape form the hungry, obscure timefront.
Countless energies are consumed to fix (up) the flow of time
into some intelligible, ethernalized frames, in perfect forgetfulness
that everyhing changes and dies beside movement, the wave emerging
in the eternal transition between generation and extinction.

To that xu(e) is devoted.
