Bauhaus: "Expression Through Chance""Chance... surrender to the unknown..." This is a dual cassette take of a song/remix using an obscure poem written by the Gothic band 'Bauhaus', incorporating the 'cut-up/randomised' philosophy in the text. Originally recorded in 1988. Yes, those are the old Mattel 'Synsonics' drums, and the Korg Poly 800!
Ozima SiamIntro and title track from the new 20th Anniversary edition of "Ozima Was Her Name", Evet's first big solo production in the studio. Recorded at Blam, engineered by Eric Butkus, produced and arranged by Evet. Lyrics (featuring original chanting): Ozima by Evet Socrates Prelude: Passion curled behind a muslin curtain Veiled from each other’s view Something glowed a touch revealed ourselves I want it badly do you? Do You: Expect to be free to see Between Fantasy and the Truth When it feels there has to be Valid clues? I. OZIMA was her name A stained glass blasphemy OZIMA was her name She seemed to capture me Consumed in temples, a wasted expanse- blizzards of fires arise… II. (with counter chant *a) : Fluid floating her dance enthralls This Persian hajja bet 99 names of god Her virtueous outfloweth is eyetrick poetry Accentuates, not dominates, with introspect to ultimate III. Chorus: With a Majesty, Cosmic Company (counterchant:’maha-re sawa jada-li…’) IV. Poison not taken and having not died Contorted with pain and the resulting waves I was thunderstruck with a rage I must come of age right now Poison got taken and having not died… Would scream to anyone Your eyes they lie somehow Real loud V. Interlude “Ozima was her name” VI. Foreign places would satisfy When sanctity ripped tapestries that looming fates would hide I knew I’d never see the skies of lands that were divine By juxtaposing wonderment with what you see and what you get VII. Chorus- outro ‘Nomena nomena’ *a (counterchant 1: Shawa za-za, Shaha d’Allah, Shawa moksa, Shari ah’la Ma da hana, dabble walla, yogi Bali, Sama sari ) Copyright 2108 Evet Socrates- All Rights Reserved Painting by Dallas K.
