Black Words On White Paper
This document is the first publication that contains all the worlds for the
Clock DVA albums up to 1989, in this sense it is unique. Not only does it
contain the lyrics for White Souls in Black Suits, Thirst, Advantage and Buried
Dreams but also reprints the text for the abandoned novel, Invisible Suns,
originally drafted in 1979, but as yet unfinished and until now unpublished.
recently I came upon a piece of information regarding the Edgar Cayce Readings.
The readings insist "That the power of the soul is such that mankind's activity
for good and bad can in fact produce changes in the universe. Sun spots are but
one source of this phenomenon and indicate how defects in mans character are
manifesting as flaws in the sun - the source of his vital energy. The
intricacies of how this process works may be explained by considering the
endocrine gland system which represents a transmitter/receiver system for
planetary energies and which not only picks up vibrations but itself emits
energy of a like nature."(1)
I felt its inclusion here would take it partially away from the usual format of
lyric books in the sense that it expands on the ides that were concurrent to
the written texts that I was outputting at the stage, although I think that you
will ascertain from these texts a number of connections and themes that have
run through all the DVA albums to date. Black Words on White paper represent
the total output to date over a period of work that began in 1979 through 1989.
The artworks that have been included in this document are original and have
never been printed before. details of each of the works reproduced are given in
the pictography at the end of the book, also included is a complete discography
to date. Currently we are working on a book that will chart the concepts'
activities and history of Clock DVA and other publications are planned. These
include Rotogravure which is being edited by members of TAGC, at the Anterior
Research Station. The first edition will be dedicated to Psychophysics. No
release date can be given as yet but time is always expanding.
