H.P. Lovecraft -inspired radio play. An introspective psychological report of an encounter with other-dimensional entity, finishing with a hymn for the Faceless One.

Harmonic and melodic material derived from a 12-tone row based on layered fifths.


Hymn for the Faceless One

From beyond of beyondness of the unibeing to whom emptiness appears a mere phase
breaths with a peculiar scent an unproperness to even the highest laws one might wish
to command this existence

Utterly useless and foul lurks through the cracks of the most crystallized of reasons
a meaningless howl sent forth by a pulse beneath
to hide in every silence
between each beat of the below beat

A messenger it deviced to take any form narrow human mind ever desired and more!
More forms than perceptions found!
In laughter toward beings tied to ground lies a lair of tiding
eternally hid from a coherent eye
