The Blues, Finale, Canto XXII “Life Calls to Life”

Oriol begs Undfenquathodem, the oldest living being, to try one more time to summon the citizens of the Last Empire to join the living world. No one hears the call.

The Blues, Canto XIX, “The Insanity of Trees”

I took a little vacation from the internet, but usually GLP is published every Thursday and Sunday, and occasionally Tuesday. For the next 2 months my schedule might become erratic as I devote some extra time to family matters.

The Blues, Interlude, “The Aesthetic Dream”

Oriol dreams of a world where no living thing exists, where man lives only in his art and technology. This piece is sometimes performed between the Garden and the Testimonies.

Geranium Lake Properties, the first and last trillion


The Blues, Canto XVI, “The Testimony of the Cyanobacteria”

Also called “The Song of Departures” or “The List of Extinction”. Sometimes it is sung at the end of the Testimonies.

A note about art and the modern experience: Since my computer expired in April I have been using an old laptop, and all my images have been created with MS Paint. The Blues, An Asemic Opera has been made entirely on MS Paint. In fact, this project would never have come into being if my computer had not broken down.

The Blues, Canto XV, “The Testimony of the Earth and Sea”

Oriol asks for a way mankind can escape their fate foretold in the Oracle of the Buried.

The heart of the planet
is made of iron
and knows nothing of life.
It speaks through fire
and pools of magma.
Sometimes it laughs
at its own unknowable jokes,
erupting in volcanoes
and earthquakes.

The sea is full of life,
it speaks through the hearts
and lungs of whales.
It sings love songs to men
and is spurned with spears
and poison.
