This work examines the experience of self in time: “A manifestation of the autonomy of consciousness / That is beyond individual authority.” Electronic vocal modulations and treatments, and a drone produced by a pure sine tone harmonic series.


The incidence of self—
The awareness of awareness,
The sensation of sensation—
Is an expression of presence:
A manifestation of the autonomy of consciousness
That is beyond individual authority.

Embodied neither as who it was
Nor as who it may become,
The self is a perpetual reaffirmation of being,
Insusceptible to will or circumstance,
For its material existence is no more
Than the perception of itself.

The realization of consciousness
Surfaces from unconsciousness;
The effect of will—
Of capability—
Revealed only when it cannot be exercised.

The experience of self
Is actualized only by the inexperience
Of an un-self.
