Since the days when I was a single-digit midget, I’ve utilized number systems for sundry creative works – not obligatorily in terms of mathematical constructs, but rather as simple decision-making relational elements. Visual, audible, textual, and conceptual works – all under the influence of numbers utilizing some form of “desultoriness as springboard” ethos.

So, while sitting in a hotel room in Linz, Austria, I suddenly came across a series of categorical, electronically engendered numbers that worked, as intended, as a transposition of a passive conceptual event-structure (a duration of unknown length intentionally used solely to generate ideas) to an active one. This event (which, incidentally, happened just 9 minutes into what would’ve been John Cage’s 97th birthday on September 5) coupled with my perpetual desire to offload sundry elements of interest has thrust me into the clear parallel of repurposing my website from static biography-predicated to a dynamic one. A consequential, often unseen, issue for me deals with time cognation (as alluded to in my comments earlier) that will be a component of this website not only in subject matter, but in the actual non-linear publishing chronology of these posts. The system that I’m utilizing (under the form of this incipient active event-structure) yields postings that will not be from linear structured timelines: ergo the past will suddenly arise now, while the future will be indited at any time.

Rod Stasick is a composer in the broad sense of the term. He is interested in the creation of event-systems for various situations. Template scores are often created using a combination of graphic signs and symbols that usually suggests a syncretism of styles and methods of performance. Using these methods, he produces works in diverse disciplines (audio, video, text, mail art, conceptualism, etc.) utilizing assorted influences: Eastern Philosophy, Fluxus, The Situationist International, Oulipo, Semiotics, Discrete Event-Systems, random numbers to revamp Zen planning and forms of Information Theory.
