lost in translation
Op. 22 (2019, in progress)

These songs were designed to take some rather silly texts and set them to comparatively serious music. The texts of these two songs were generated by poor computer translations, resulting in some very strange grammar and interesting vocabulary choices.

 

Exhibitions and Versions is a deliberate mutilation of Walt Whitman’s poem, “When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer,” by cramming it through sixteen different languages on Google Translate.

THE WAY TO INSTALL THE LOOP takes snippets of text from the instruction manual to a SpaceRail marble coaster set, where the instructions were computer translated from Japanese. The logographic nature of the Japanese writing certainly did not translate easily to the Latin alphabet!

I entered, use it for use.
Time can be convenient and sometimes
Find stars and stars.

THE WAY TO INSTALL THE LOOP

When making loops, the follow loop must small the front one,
otherwise, the steel ball cannot running smoothly.
Key points for installing loop!
Refer the inner diameter on picture when installing the space warp.

When making loops, the follow loop must small the front one,
otherwise, the steel ball cannot running smoothly.

It need to make the loop like beauty “circle”
and keep standing, otherwise the ball can not running smoothly!
