Gordon Monahan - This Piano Thing
Swerve Editions - GM004

$14.00 CAD

When atoms are travelling straight down
through empty space by their own weight,
at quite indeterminate times and places,
they swerve ever so little from their course,
just so much that you would call it a change
of direction. If it were not for this swerve,
everything would fall downwards through
the abyss of space. No collision would take
place and no impact of atom on atom would
be created. Thus nature would never have
created anything.
