This short (thirteen minute) release is an attempt to deconstruct one of J.G Ballard's 'condensed novels' - "The Atrocity Exhibition", written in 1969.
I created lists with specific rules (such as monosyllabic, French punctuation, or proper nouns), and graphic poetry using those lists. Then I read the graphic poems live with an electric bass plugged into an old guitar amplifier, and an acousmatic patch controlled with a laptop. I then divided the recording into ten tracks.
