    My client has asked me to read the following prepared statement.

    Jimmy Kipple Sound is an assemblage of meat, old consumer recording hardware

    & various comparatively cheap plugins & programs

    the main purpose of which is the generation & dissemination of audio files

    i adopted kipple as a term, as a name, because i enjoyed the connotations

    connotations of entropy, error & uncontrollabilty

    i liked its skiffiness, its science-fictional provenance,

    i liked its implication of density and worthlessness

    i liked that it sounds funny

    NOted chickenhead Jack Isodore defines kipple as useless objects,

    like junk mail or match folders after you use the last match

    or gum wrappers or yesterday's homeopape.

    When nobody's around, he adds, kipple reproduces itself.

    so yeah

    i am fascinated by dots & loops.

    i am preoccupied by time & duration.

    i am fascinated by fragments and smaller fragments, and enamoured of collages both deliberate and accidental

    i am trying to learn to admire certain kinds of errors & mistakes.

    for good or ill, i am an inveterate collecter of *stuff*

    i don't really have a good idea as to what the sounds i create or collect are

    but they are

    so kipple feels like a term worth adopting for them even though it is undoubtedly something of a misapporopriation.

    I am not now, nor have i ever claimed to be musician

    & i've only self-identified as an artist when obliged to during the completion of mp3 metadata.
