Mercurial, pluralistic and singular, the publication
of the first two books of Silence in a single volume represents
the genesis of a radical new form of epic poetry.
Embracing the seemingly diverse spheres of apophatic
theology and Big Bang cosmology, and drawing inspiration from the
works of Ovid, Joseph Beuys and Ezra Pound, the epic seeks, through
the juxtaposition of intuitive and rational voices, to counter-signify
the divine darkness of a singularity.
Here Nietzsche, Socrates and Dionysos dissolve into
a dithyramb of Primordial Fire, whilst Caravaggio, Leonardo and
St. Hieronymus perform the photonic dance of the early Matter Era;
here the Universe begins to speak through the masks of cultural
memory, and laugh in the face of the ineffable.
