Ad Astral Podcast, Episode 27:

Writer of Future Dreams-Shownotes

Submitted by DJ Burnham on Sunday 28th June 2015

(Writer of Future Dreams was written in June 2010 on the Greek island of Paros. This is its first appearance.)

Mellon is Greek for future and graphos appears quite a lot in Greek words. Such as kinimatografos, which means cinema, or fotografos which means photographer. Grafos sort of means to write with. So, with the addition of oneiro, meaning dream, I came up with the word Melloneirographalogist (melon ear o graphologist), or The writer of future dreams - I used to have that on my card. I wanted a Philip K Dickian sort of vibe to this one, hence the disorienting nature of it. You never know which is the real program writer. Maybe it's none of them. Maybe they are all programs themselves. Maybe the program has been corrupted. Maybe we're dealing with a multi-faceted schizophrenic. Make of it what you will.

The original artwork shows the Writer of Future Dreams in a self-visualised immersion scenario.

 

Thanks to Denis Vander Beken and Youla Grivea for making our stays at aquamarine in Alyki on Paros so enjoyable: this story was written on the beach there.
