Originally posted on comatonse.com 1994. Accompanying text to the album of the same name (US: Instinct Ambient, 1994) EX-283-2. Instinct Records was against the idea of including an english analytical text because they feared it would alienate the audience, so Terre wrote this 'poem against poetics' and had Erik Dahl translate it into French so that the staff at Instinct would be less likely to understand it. Although some journalists have mistakenly written that "040468" is my birthday, it is actually the day of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination. The police radio in the track is from the actual chase of the shooter who got away. This kind of misreading was all too typical for a music press and audience base fixated on 'personal expression' to the exclusion of all other contents.
