Nature Sounds Without Nature Sounds

Front Cover
Sad Press, Aug 31, 2019 - Poetry - 36 pages

nature sounds without nature sounds aims for a pure expenditure of the energy economies of the anthropocene, latching onto shimmering instants of anxiety and happiness among crisis, precarity and ending worlds. Influenced by the likes of Hélène Cixous, Clarice Lispector, Lisa Robertson, Ariana Reines, Lana Del Rey and the new materialist turn in IDM, it chews the rare candies of late capitalism in the hope of a levelling up or survival. Poetry as cheat code, dreamscape; the lyric as sultry song of aporia and longing. nature sounds reflects the ambient poetics of a fractured present, its sonic palettes and ekphrastic realities erected as desire's latent architecture in the contexts of liminal labour, cherry-flavoured melancholy and the ontological upheavals of ecological emergency. Situated in the microstructures and object universe of everyday life, it nevertheless bears cosmic ambitions: exploring what we ask of meaning and mood, music and image in a time where our every horizon or hermeneutics glitches.
