about

ARDIS = Earth, the necessary changes having been made [mutatis mutandis].

Ardis is an imagined parallel world and a very real place. It is inhabited by opening portals using song and scent. An ardis is the point of an arrow, a nexus in time and space, shooting toward the unknown future. This particular ardis is the pregnant present as it incubates future vision.

Part 1--
Scale: Building to City
Portal: 5 songs, fragrance, scented candle, video, live concert
Topography: Dense urban development; towers and bridges set atop one another, a confusion of images and symbols
Vantage: Oculocentric, the beginnings of Ardisian-thinking, the conflict between hubris and utopic desire, the limitations of individualism; the body as an ant in an army, or a blood cell in an artery.
Air Quality: Smoky, Clouded, Empire Decay, Overwhelming
Sound: Loud

Part 2--
Scale: Comingled Bodies to Bedroom
Portal: 5 songs, fragrance, body lotion, video, live concert
Topography: Ardisian boudoir, lit by a pink moon
Vantage: Touch language, soft plush, tangled tongues and limbs, a delightful jumble, the way time is stretched like taffy during orgasm
Air Quality: Muggy and steamy, human animal musk, enfolded
Sound: Intimate, whispered, immediate

Part 3--
Scale: Glacial Lake to Forest/ Mountain Range
Portal: 5 songs, fragrance, room mist, video, live concert
Topography: Three crystal blue lakes, each with their own distinct personalities, named Omega, Ozero, and Zero; Mountainous and densely wooded; diverse fauna and web-like tributaries bound for the ocean
Vantage: Geologic time, the intelligence of a complex ecosystem, matter as it travels through cycles of decay and birth
Air Quality: Expansive, liquid and misty, a pleasant and transportive breeze
Sound: Adrift via clouds, constantly in motion and characterized by continually transforming relation; the sound is the listener and the listener is the sound

Track Name: Love Magnet
Ready for some harmony
To be happening happening happening to me
A love that can make the flowers sing
And knows how to get the red rose ringing

But do the stars lie?
Are they just a mess in the sky?
I don’t know why oh why

Only lonely misery
I’m a love magnet with reverse polarity
Half-finished bad poetry
And I don’t believe that this is my destiny
I’m a love magnet but not the kind I want to be
I want to pull you pull you pull you close to me

The wild briar bending in the breeze
Smiles under the glinting sun
And like the briar I’m bent upon my knees
But in the darkness, apart from everyone

Oh do the stars lie?
Are they just a mess in the sky
I wonder why oh why
Only lonely misery
I’m a love magnet with reverse polarity
Half-finished bad poetry
I just don’t think that the stars are aligned for me
Its less romance, feels more like obscenity
But I want to pull you pull you pull you close to me

Sometimes I feel like I was made in error
And against my better judgment I still care
I suspect my nature is unfinished

Only lonely misery
Half finished bad poetry
I’m a love magnet with reverse polarity
And I don’t believe that this is my destiny
I’m a love magnet but not the kind I want to be
I want to pull you pull you pull you close to me
Track Name: Lips 2 Lips
Lips 2 lips mirror-like
Shooting light like a star
Silver moon unsteady
Swinging deliciously

Drink it up with your tender breath
St. Valentine’s sweet oxygen
The glowing moon is red on faces
Now stop and smell my roses

Easy brilliant natural without life together, forever and ever
Easy brilliant natural without life together, forever and ever

And heaven knows is this moonglow, or is it you?

Looking through all our secrets
It's shatterproof tenderness
And counting all of the eyelashes
We’ll save em to make a wish

Heaven knows, is it moonglow or is it you?
I feel pretty drunk, pour more please, or warn me

Will you go out there?
I have come to you
How long will it be?
Forever and ever

Meanwhile kiss
Lips to lips lips to lips
Mad glance happiness
Happiness happiness
Count two earthly bipeds on shatterproof glass
The visible secrets of tenderness

And heaven knows is it moonglow, or is it you?
(Read on the roses that spread on sweet faces,
Counting eyelashes for kissable wishes)
I feel pretty drunk, pour more please, or warn me
(Feathers unfettered you whisper to look, gaze to gaze lips to lips)

Easy brilliant natural without life together forever and ever
Easy brilliant natural without life together forever and ever
Track Name: Night Buzzing
It is night
All the senses buzzing for you
The windows are still
The streets are gone
We float aloft
Because of the softness
of laughter

We declare
All that is joyous
And then set it free
Into the sky above
There is a night sky
In your ceiling
I feel all the stars’ love
In your kisses

Both lovers sigh in paradise
Both lovers sigh in paradise
Lips to lips, explode bliss,
Both lovers sigh in paradise

Both lovers sigh in paradise
Both lovers sigh in paradise
Lips to lips, explode bliss,
Both lovers sigh in paradise
Track Name: Do You Remember The Life Before This?
Do you remember the life before this
Where we met in a prairie
Under the sun and got so lost
So lost in reverie
That it was almost, almost
As if we never existed
Almost as if we never existed

Sometimes I feel with you as if I’m lost in time
Outcast
And it’s my favorite place

Do you remember when we descended
Deep under the surface of the earth
Buried in promises, promises
Of the dreams we speak through
And we held each other there
We were caked in moss and worms
We laid there together
And we didn’t leave
