♫♪  Oren Ambarchi & Eli Keszler - “ALPS I” [extract]

Ominous. A sign of things ahead. A preparation, as it were, of something disturbing. Always pushing ahead with the main act, always trying to go forward where going forward seems impossible. There’s a darkness ahead, isn’t there?

But what is that darkness of? What stands before us? What can we not see that implores us forward into something meaningless that we can’t understand? What are we to prepare for, if we cannot accept what is happening? The impossible becomes a useless ideal, for we cannot grasp it within ourselves, waiting forever for the right moment to assert our being over the void rather than within it. We refuse darkness because it is wrong. And yet by refusing it…

We dance around the audio of being, rather than accept the noise that bombards us. That is the power of a perception filter: the noise becomes so intense that you just try to find something to hang on to, enough to ignore a lot of what passes by. But some do not have this. They have to endure every noise and sight like a thousand swords that merely prick instead of impale. A hindrance and a lot of bleeding, but no release.

When you can only do then is hear ahead, what is beyond. Knowing that something is ahead, yet unable to discern or see what it could mean.
