Backwards Jazz

May 21, 2018

In an ambiant
Dark room
A band
With brass instruments
Light touches on the cymbal

Strange
Backwards
A lonely
And perturbed being
Is stringing the sounds together

Hypnotizing
Tritonic waves
Going back and forth

The bass
Is walking
Marching
In subconsciouses

Electromagnetic fields
To the brain
And eyes
Lurking
Slithering
In the back of the music's soul

The author's comments:

I got the inspiration from a scene in the latest season of Twin Peaks, where a jazz band plays in a dark room, but backwards. It made for a very fascinating, slithering atmosphere, which I found very inspiring.
