LINGUA IGNOTA // THE CHOSEN ONE (MASTER)

 

THE CHOSEN ONE (MASTER) corresponds to THE GLORIFICATION OF THE CHOSEN ONE from Stravinsky’s Rite.

THE CHOSEN ONE (MASTER) is a lament. it is the only song in the cycle where not all textual content is appropriated from the 10,000 pages. THE CHOSEN ONE (MASTER) is autobiographical, or not. it is a confession uttered in a whisper, accompanied by a single repeating series of arpeggiated piano chords. THE CHOSEN ONE (MASTER) in its simple storytelling is indebted to medieval minneslied.

text:

i am the chosen one / i am the chosen one / i am the chosen one / i am the rapist / i am the demon / holy righteous axe of god / i am unending night / unforgivable daughter / untouchable whore / slut without pleasure / my own fucking frigid lover / sexless no sex just death* / ruined in every hole / broken in every bone / beaten within an inch / i am the chosen one / fifteen unconscious one / facedown slit open one / as god made me / as god made me…

most rejected above all things / most despised above all things / most coveted above all things / i am : master

 

* one of the only fully intact lines from the 10,000 pages. from Iron Lung’s title track off their record “Sexless//No Sex.”

visual accompaniment is found footage of a mill burning down in Salem, Mass in 2014.
