Photonic Einductor is Michaelmatician’s newest effort (a ‘sound unit’ as he calls it) to be discovered.
He recently gave me permission to review it and get some of his comments about it. This was done via writing on restaurant napkins and hiding them in movie theatres. After determining the locations, I would have to write a single question on a napkin and then hide it in the 10:30 theatre for “Iron Man 2”. He would then retrieve the napkin and leave his response on the back inside the 8:30 theatre. This meant that I received the answers before he received the questions. It was slightly irritating.
For the reader’s sake I will list the question and then its answer, even though Michael insisted that the answers only be provided.
1. What Inspired you to create this unit?
M: The future. Certain things needed to be said about the things that will occur. Also, I found a new keyboard machine in Guam and I needed to use it.
2. Are there any musical influences you would like to share with regards to the unit?
M: Yes, but most of them are secret. I had spoken with Thomas Dolby in ’85 about techno-modulation. It is a concept that involves the time dimension changing its ‘key’ inversely to the harmonic key. Very subtle.
3. Who do you hope will be reached by this unit?
M: Workers, teachers, plumbers and accountants. Aside from those groups it won’t matter who hears/sees it.
At this point we ran out of napkins and I never saw Michael again. We are still working out the details on distribution.
“Only those who see will be chosen to possess the unit.”
