Hardcore Ambient


I notice the ambient style
at concerts and on recordings

a layered thick dense and noisy sound
a sound so deep I can’t see its bottom

a processed sound

it disguises the melodies
disfigures the chords
paints over the rhythms
with smears of snap crackle and pop

as if the musicians
don’t want you know them
or follow or track what’s happening
to know how they made it

as if the sound is unclear
because their music doesn’t allow
for the pleasure of making sense.
