about PIECES
by Michael Basinski

These pieces contain garbled forms of names of goddesses, mixed with seven vowels and seven planets arranged in a mystic order. Keys can be located in the two lost books of Ieu. The author was under spell during translation. The editor imposed the current order. In this particular instance the editor is a form of author. Other authors are available. These pieces originate from the (nome) Ta-sti capital Ab(Elephantine)--Second Dynasty, the reign of Neferkara I. As magic, you must engage the pieces with all manner and fashion, e.g., dancing, singing, etc.
