Selected Works, Rose Knapp


Radical Pulsation

Distorted reverbed rippling four to the floor 
Ecstatic trance melodies echo through shapeshifting walls
Esoteric electronic hisses, bleeps and bloops on infinite delay

Baroque Cave Scratchings

Hhhhhiiiiisssssssss hhhheeeerrrsss lines and glossolalia reign 
Fuck spit blood ecstasy abhorrent violence
There is no Cartesian I invented yet, only the tribe, the hive mind

Astral Ecstasy 

Tribal drums crash in arrhythmic patterns
Mystical glass chimes ring in ping pong delay
A crescendo of sublime stringed synths

Glitch in the Cisystem 

Are trans and nonbinary more than a glitch 
In the system of binaric rigid gender roles? 

A few of us are famous, but what about the rest of us, 
The impoverished, the Dalits of Western society?


Modular morphing futurist glassy gliding synths
Intermingling and intermeshing 
With atmospheric crashing analog stabs
