about

The final project for yo boy!'s electronic music class, this features readings that were read, recorded, and rephrased from Kinbote's poem "Pale Fire".

Except for a recording of Franklin Deleanor Roosevelt's first inaugural speech from 1932, all voices and sounds were likely performed, synthesized, and processed by PTRxNRT, and certainly the entire composition is his.

lyrics

It is pre-eminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly.

Truth?Truth? Truth: truth.

The TRUTH!
waxwings are berry-pecking.
The TRUTH!
pecking! pecking, pecking!

It is pre-eminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly.

The Truth!
frankly, and boldly!
it is pre-eminently the time.

The Truth!

Today I'm sixty-one.
The waxwings are berry-picking.
A cicada siiiiiings.
What death, what doom awaited consciousness beyond the tomb?

The Truth!

There was a time in my dement,
there was the day when i began to doubt man's sanity,
and finally there was the sleepless night,
the foul, the inadmissable abyss of books.
