Crucial early-noise document from the Los Angeles Free Music Society heyday. "AIRWAY is a brainchild of Joe Potts. Here are COMMANDMENTS OF AIRWAY: AIRWAY is a hole through which our conscious passes. Sound of AIRWAY is not an object. Sound of AIRWAY has no fixed location. Sound of AIRWAY has no fixed location. Sound of AIRWAY has no fixed meaning. Sound of AIRWAY has no dimensions. Meaning and dimensions of AIRWAY sound constantly change in relation to the universe inside and outside listeners. Sound of AIRWAY has no fixed time. The "flow of time" in AIRWAY sound is psychological not physical. Sound of AIRWAY is a representation of the 'whole' of sound existing inside and outside us. Because all sound of AIRWAY is interrelated, there is no such thing as innovative sound at AIRWAY performance. Sound of AIRWAY is an unfolded manifestation of hidden (enfolded) universe, consisting of all sound which will ever exist and has ever consisted inside and outside us." "The monster is back in its original nature! Human synthesizers!! Hijokaidan in its early days was heavily under its influence. Definitly a must for everyone in this era!" -- Toshiji Mikawa (Hijokaidan/Incapacitants ).
