ABOUT THE CULTURE OF SLEEP L-Dopa Tryptophane serotonin to eat Rise-up its in the clock Rise-up Osiris Shaking Parkinsons dis-ease the sense of sin-nil-ity This is what your fascination the color of the needs of your dreams Society in the guise of YOU Them and me the uncoerced desires can we but see The construction at its source can its existence even be where is the construction of activity The structure of phenala-la-nine arginine and with the fine powder or ornithine T-cells from the thalamus between in front and around the heart the serpent ascending coiled at the sacrum up And up around and through my vision caught as a net the heavenly hue three mountain goats introduced to me to breathing this way and the other they were said to be Neither Nor the quest but the cup itself wrought from Kindness enchanted by the possibility of staying late For it is that time matters little when you are late And it is 3 things not one But as they spoke with tongues of frame not flame they told the names whilst sitting on the abyss Their name was Doe and their name as A Oh tell me please and I asked the way Up and Up and around and through again and again In-DEED A-GAIN taking upon atomic weight becoming so dense transparency arrives Simply in its chemical complexities there are atoms of air in your lungs that were once in in the lings of every one who has ever lived (and is living now) we are breathing each other The will is alive only as well as consciousness is chemical Be the chemistry Feed the head Nurtured on the cristo the oil of its oracle the tongue is a natural extension and is divided with the snake coiled but by now traveling up re-gaining its oil golden The endocrine system the holographic circuit system fed on light starlight and of its sight And look over there Can you but see the deftly stepping autolytic enzymes phagocetic cells of entropy harboring their cyanide pills Usually to be released, what a pity unconsciously, which means without the activity of to-gethering An now on the culture of sleep Jan. 1985 Sharon Gannon
AND RE-MEMBER Hence forth wither did they come Will be seen in where they go For all that we see at a time Was once without show And as above same again below But with quite varied weight The needle the cone it is we Who can call it these Beckons in blazing silver light A met desire which is only death But life also and thus the oscillation To beget limited The cone being spiral as it suggests All with the laws of things They seem only as they are And cannot have come from and other ring Pass not from here or any other Place without the movement And remember that as you are So you are until you are not Yes and no being with you too Where they merge only you can know For to travel with their communion Is your sunset school The intermediary between the lines Of time ans the tongues of space Is all that can ever be talking about Here where talking rules the course And as you do so everyone else does Remembering the drawing light Which was the key the pass ans surest Cumulation of desire of need Need set in motion must by its very design Propel itself to eat its tail Desire issues necessity Necessity demands mortality Sharon Gannon
Dogon 02:46
DOGON Africa near Egypt Timbuktu fish like ones the serious few came into the atmospheric oceans with blood letters, messages we came to here before the air the letter that we have chosen to begin the alphabet is A and it is for the AIR, the ether and its face is that of the sacrifice to begin the beginning into the air released from weight through fire we are also younger than the star each and ever every one both was one as we sailed in to the mystic And now we've gone into it DOG GONE DOG GONE two snakes intertwine and speak forever the weight of form the rocket ships are in our own minds the rhythm is the spine where DNA lies curled in lines DAN converses with the Central Nervous System and the snakes play and the dogs howl at the moon And then the floods came as the atmosphere loosened from the sky and fell to earth All the gems, then, of heavy metals were taken from the center of the planet and placed on the top of it And as a by-product of action the past is brought back with us ans built upon again gaining a fraction more in its becoming Into transparent layers of the no-time longer pass the ring-fashion among the none DOG GONE DOG GONE Sharon Gannon

Fake Feeling Institute is the result of a Collaboration Tape begun in 1985 by Rick Hazle in San Francisco and Audio Leter in New York. The procedure was to have both Rick and myself start various tracks, then send the masters back to each other through the mail for overdubbing. The masters were recorded on TEAC TASCAM 244 4-track cassette decks. These songs began with the first track improvisations layered with overdubs.

Special thanks to Carl Howard for type-setting.


released May 5, 1987
