Track Name: uP 31
"Let us commence with the folk song, which, although it cannot be included in the category of absolute music, because it is associated with words, has a very definite musical design. This design embodies the principle of simple repetition such as we find in textiles and wall papers, with the fundamental difference, however, that folk songs have a definite beginning and ending. Wall papers more closely resemble the primitive designs of savages in which a single musical phrase is repeated indefinitely.
Folk songs are short musical settings of popular verse. They are often of uncertain origin."

"Een afvalemmer voorzien van een deksel met enkele fikse gaten, één welker aan het oog onttrokken door een trapachtige constructie leidend tot een middels een metalen veertje in onbelaste toestand gesloten luikje, teneinde rondscharrelend ongedierte, dat bij het verkennen van de onbedekte gaten 'Ha, daar trap ik niet in!' dient te piepen, te verleiden de treden te bestijgen om bij aankomst op het beweeglijke platje in de diepte te duikelen, getuigt eerder van literaire kwaliteiten dan van een bijzonder inzicht in de psychologie van de huismuis."

(Harold Schellinx, 'The Noble Art of Linear Decorating', PhD Thesis 1994 - Stelling VIII.)

" [...] Obviously, the number of decorations of a given formula is infinite. Though by the observations made at the end of the introduction to Chapter 1, modulo provable linear equivalence this number will be finite. [...]"

Extracts from Laura Wetherington's 'fake translations pour JeanYves' (manuscript).

" [ ... ]

Sometimes I try out a formula
like come awake + last = the place I solve for
and then I try x on like a tank top.
I give up the possibility of living inside
and instead try on tank tops nothing comes of it.
