Heaven is Plastered Onto this Wall

A stream-of-consciousness text reading is accompanied by a video projection of numbered line drawing and the soundtrack of a radio show put through a beat-processing modulator. Here are a couple of text excerpts:

To let go of your doubts now
Here is the most beautiful clarity
Shimmering in the water
The flow of waves covering water lilies
And pollen making yellow pigments on the surface
It’s a bright summer day
Like finding Dante’s heaven after the inferno

The radio broadcast you’re hearing the beats of tells of Victory Garden, one of the world’s most advanced surveillance facilities. The plings and plongs are actually quite monotonous words by the hostess, not particularly harmonic. I have to modulate her through a rack of effects to achieve that.

‘Cause we’re spilling
Flowing out now
Like a
Never-ending stream of silicone and LED
Out from the mouth of God
