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: Veritas in Terra
Terra
You were gone long before us
Taught the cells they could adore us
We still mourn your tender lies

Terra
You remind me of Arrakis
I wove all of you through velvet
So I know its all a lie

Terra or René
And all the other things I was planning to say
Ziemba is the name of a spider who was burned at the stake

Terra
I believe you more than ever
For the names keep getting better
Weaving truth into the lie

Veritas
Its my very own renaissance
That was born long before us
Now i’ve given it a name

Veritas in Terra Veritas in Terra ohh
Veritas in Terra Veritas in Terra ohh

Terra
Oh the relics that you left us
In exchange for our confessions
We all live for tender lies

Veritas
Deep within your well of wishes
Virgin daughter of prometheus
Lives the mother of all lies

Veritas in Terra Veritas in Terra ohh
Veritas in Terra Veritas in Terra ohh
Veritas in Terra Veritas in Terra ohh
Veritas in Terra Veritas in Terra ohh
Track Name: I Built Utopia, It Became a Nightmare
How quickly utopia becomes a nightmare
I built my world free from fear, but something else trembles the air
If I play God, will it help sweet songbirds sing me their prayers?
I built utopia, it became a nightmare

Now I only care for prayers of songbirds
(I built utopia, it became a nightmare)

How quickly utopia becomes a nightmare
I built my world free from fear, but something else trembles the air
If I play God, will it help sweet songbirds sing me their prayers?
I built utopia, it became a nightmare
La la la la la

Now I only care for prayers of songbirds
Sweet songbirds sing
Track Name: Ugly Ambitious Women
Sensation type:
Unloveable, morbid primitive grotesque
Prickly old people’s hearts
Hairsplitting stupid old head
Ambitious women can’t help being ugly
Look at me
Look at me
I will recall
I will recall
Tongue-slipping all too human
Profane shadow
I will recall
Grotesque echo
A pure mirror and a damn prison
Profane shadow
Sham prototype
Hysterical
too quick to cry
Built to break
Delicate rose
got a complex
Silly old bleeding a mess

Sensation type: [main melody] profane eyes blind eyes
Unloveable, morbid, primitive, grotesque spark cure
Prickly old people’s hearts tongue slipping all too human
Hairsplitting stupid old head as if i needed a weapon
Ambitious women can’t help being ugly profane as a shadow or echo
Look at me a pure mirror and a damn prison
Look at me
Track Name: Vero
Vero you say with none hidden reward but it funnels through
Ignite your present stream before time returns to die
Listfully written or pulsed with a gun, names on a page
It’s true what they say, its all true and none

There’s no one, there’s no one, there’s no one who can rewrite what’s done.

Ignited Vero belied something lost, we swim in red but not still
The days are war, the moves are few, the light deceives the cold of home
