In this blog we will share with you our vision of beauty, balance, harmony.

As Mark Leach writes in his book Raw Colour with Pastels: “Sound is all around us, and it is musicians who refine that sound into something of beauty. As a painter, I have always felt that my purpose is to craft colour in a similar way, to see through the confusion and seek harmony and beauty.”

And we add: Words, fragments of sentences, spoken noise is all around us, and Ken arranges words in such a way as to capture beauty in the accidental, the ambient soundtrack of life.

WHY I’VE CALLED YOU HERE

If all the deeply repressed rage in this audience were suddenly released
we would have a cross between “Carrie” and Omaha Beach. 

Overpopulation is an urgent statistic; still, there’s no need to encourage its opposite.

Hasn’t done the Chinese much good. They still breed, if sometimes surreptitiously.
It’s all number and economic growth and whether their fleet will
surround Hawaii next year. At some point our species will have to merge spiritually  

with the space-time curve, so we’ll no longer think ourselves infinite. We will keep on going,
surely, but only to end up back here, if somewhat diminished,
                                       in this Biergarten, on the outskirts of Munich,
underneath these chestnut trees, humidity moistening a young girl’s pig tails

like something seen on a mountain trail, or the third morning at Woodstock.
No one will have to go home, because home is uncertain right now,
doesn’t exist in any principle we can lay out.  

Which is not why I’ve called you here. 


... In this great version of Soul Sacrifice, there is even a girl with pigtails.
