- copernicus: cipher and decipher
(2011, cd, usa, nevermore / moonjune)
Copernicus is back with a new album.
On “Cipher And Decipher” performance poet Copernicus (real name Joseph Smalkoswski) continues to explain his view upon the the universe. In Copernicus’ world, everything we see and hear is fake. It’s all an illusion. The only world only exists on the subatomic level, as everything is made up out of 12 subatomic particles.
Copernicus rants that matter is energy, that the force of gravity can be felt throughout the universe, and that matter can become mind.
Supporting Copernicus in his statements, is a group of improvising musicians. Moving between soundscapes and improvisations around returning patterns, the music that accompanies Copernicus’ poems complements that total package.
I’ve said it before, and I am happy to repeat it:This is art.
I love it.
