Peter Rose: Witness

Foit Yet Cleem Triavith

FOIT YET CLEEM TRIAVITH

Foit Yet Cleem Triavith (1987) is a species of rap video whose title derives from an anagram for “The Verticality of Time.” Each line from a text about the nature of time is animated and accompanied by vocal improvisation by David Moss and Peter Rose.


ONCE UPON A TIME
WE SAW VERY QUICKLY
THE VERTICALITY OF TIME
WAS A PRECIPICE
WHOSE INTIMATE SURFACES
WE HAD BEEN PRIVILEGED TO EXPLORE
AND IN ITS FRACTURES
WE FOUND
A SECRET CONNECTION BETWEEN ALL THINGS
AN EDGE
WHOSE LABYRINTHIAN CONTOURS
DEFINED
AN ENIGMA IN ANOTHER LANGUAGE
