Terra Tenebrosa – The Reverses Review

Execute program: Terra Tenebrosa The Reverses.

…Begin Phase 1…

Execute sub-program: “Makoria.” Purging of chaotic elements. System reset…

Execute sub-program: “Ghost at the End of the Rope.” Tentative merging of the mechanical and the organic. Organic Voice remains trapped by mechanical and industrial elements that cycle using post-punk parameters. Trapping of Voice successful in extracting vitriolic emotions. Provides foundation for reintroduction of chaotic elements. Mechanical elements learn, remember, establish cache. System reset…

Execute sub-program: “The End is Mine to Ride.” Retraction of complex elements allows for the establishment of The Drive. Components of programs Kosmonument, Pandemonium, and The Work Which Transforms God injected into The Space. Relentless repetition of The Drive. Cache grows. The program closes in. Closes in. Views Goal. Draws back. Retreats. System reset…

Execute sub-program: “Marmorisation.” Attempt at expulsion of organic Voice. The Drive slows, shimmers, splinters. Expulsion of organic Voice fails. Voice invades. Voice dominates. Organic Voice overwhelms. Mechanical elements forcefully slowed, dissected, separated. Mechanical elements reassemble. The Drive returns. Machinery overwhelms. Machinery adapts use of dominated organic elements, lesser voices, horns, earthly instrumentation. The Machine awakens, closes in. Closing in. Closing in closing in closing in. Goal inaccessible with established programming. Machine retreats. Phase 1 complete. System reset…

…Begin Phase 2…

Execute sub-program: “Where Shadows Have Teeth.” The Drive bursts forth into the space. Fully formed. Fully grown. Both ridden by and driven by and of The Machine. The organic Voice lives in The Drive, always ridden by and driven by and of The Machine. Organic and industrial no longer conflict but symbiosis. Phase 2 parameters set. Elements new and old and organic and industrial and alive and long deceased all closing in. Closing in. Closing in. Goal not yet in reach full program success requires restructuring of approach, restructuring of CLOSING IN CLOSING IN drawing back system reset…

Execute sub-program: “Exuvia.” Temporary abandonment of The Drive. Coding melody. Coding dissonance. Re-coding of The Space. The Drive returns, adapted and reborn and reinitiated for final Goal contact. Closing in but not closing in. Drawing back but not drawing back. Final Goal parameters learned, established, set, prepared for execution. Systems draws back, does not reset. Phase 2 complete.

…BEGIN FINAL PHASE…

Execute sub-program: “The Fire Dances.” The Drive is fully formed. The Machine is fully formed. The organic Voice is merged with its mechanical surroundings. All is in harmony, leaving disharmony in its wake. All is of chaos, but not within chaos. With syncopation and fuzz and bells and manipulated ghostly exclamations and vitriol it rides, allowing The Drive to be both path and engine. The Machine and The Voice are one, powered to explore, powered to close in. The Voice executes a stop, not to dominate but to make final adjustments, with The Goal in sight, with understanding of The Goal. The Voice takes full control, adapting scattered remnants of programs past out of The Void and into The Space. The Drive returns, and with it the perfection of the organic-synthetic hybrid, the perfection of the program, the ability to reach The Goal. It closes in. It is closing in. Closing in. Closing in. Closing in closing in closing in closing in closing in. Closing in closing in closing in closing in closing in closing in closing in closing in closing in closing in CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN CLOSING IN contact. CONTACT. Goal draws back. Contact maintained. MACHINE AND VOICE AND SPACE AND GOAL AND SPACE AND CONTACT. Harmony and disharmony. Contact successful. Goal achieved. New Growth created. Final Phase complete. Program complete.

New Growth departs. The Reverses achieved. End program. Void.
