Oscillations
Silver Apples Lyrics


Oscillations, oscillations
Electronic evocations of sound’s reality

Spinning, magnetic fluctuations, waves of wave configurations
That dance between the poles off sound and bind my world to soul.

I walk the streets of moment. Head down to the ground.
Cars are stars remotely far. My only world is sound.
Passersby are worlds that fly. Far from the dance of time.
Time whirls round from pole to pole and swirls within the sound… of

Oscillations, oscillations
Electronic evocations of sound’s reality

My theory is the members of Silver Apples had to be time travelers.

William Pena

It sounds like someone is revving up a time machine, when I listen to this it makes me think of parallel universes.

Eddie .L

Negative hip hop made it

D Chapero

Still hilarious.

@Charlie Hufft Sadly people like them and Suicide get far too little credit compared to Kraftwerk. I remember seeing a BBC thing that described Soft Cell as band who pioneered the singer and tech geek thing, which is totally ridiculous as Marc Almond was a huge Suicide fan when Soft Cell started and there's a BBC video of him doing a cover of Ghost Rider (with Clint Ruin AKA Foetus AKA Jim Thirlwell).

@Charlie Hufft To jokingly call them time travelers is to imply their originality.

Ah yes, my favourite instrument, the Microwave

@John Tiggleman yeah, I kind of am aware that signal generators and radio testing equipment was used before synthesisers were common. I know that the BBC used to have a workshop full of them, for sound affects, and that's how the first doctor who theme was made: a similar setup plus tape manipulation

Actually, Simeon used a bank of audio oscillators: "The Simeon (his name for the setup) presently consists of nine audio oscillators and 86 manual controls..." -Barry Bryant (taken from liner notes). It was quite the set up back then.

Thanks, I spilled my tea.
