more or less starting all over again, this is a place as good as any to explain some names and terms found around my sites, lately…

so, first off, there is “kawazu”, being the nickname I’m using on both several IM systems and on this site. “kawazu” initially used to be the title of the opening part of gateways to annihilation, the 2000 release of US-american death metal legend Morbid Angel. At this time of my life, due to several things I was into very heavy music and somehow came up with this being a good nickname. Just years later I found out that “kawazu” also is the Japanese word for “frog”. But guess I can live with that…

and, there is “digital meditation”, right now… being inspired by “Electronic Meditation”, the debut album of German electronic / avantgard legend Tangerine Dream. I’ve been very much into the “old” TD works for quite some time now, and to me the title “electronic meditation” somewhat fits what the band was about to come up with during 1972 to 1975. Now, we’re into the “digital” age, so probably now it’s appropriate talking about “digital” meditation…
