Unspecified It struggles at the bounds of emotion But it's still there; a music, fair Into the smoothest course of motion Mournfully undefined Unrecognized. Most timid Like a spark for poetry it jumps Recompense of anticipation The initiation's distant hums Top secret The limit. Unmentionable On the brink stumbling Of speech's dash_ in the hush An opera heroine's mute mumbling Hardly observable Unobjectionable. Unspecified.

We start out with anything. We shake it to the foundations. Lay bare. Reduce preconceptions to the minimum. Go.
Thus: we are a un-cover band.

Indeterminacy means to us, although (or because) it is in conflict with preferences (and we are all preferences).
