salvaged....
.

..:::...sometimes when you are looking for something new, it takes pausing and reflecting on where you are now to find it…and for me, it is often in the things that are familiar, that are tangible and right there before me. sometimes all it takes is re-interpretation…bringing an object out into the afternoon light reveals different moments than i am used to observing. not better than the morning shadow in which i am perhaps conditioned to seeing it…but ’oh’ i say. ‘there is a different shade of gray than i saw there before…a different texture across that plane…a different form appears when i move it around in my hands’. perhaps i am making something new by looking at it from a different point of view. i’m in love with this re-invention. and we all bring this with our own subjectivity. that is where collaboration gets interesting. let’s see whether my blue is really your green…

and so music challenges me to do the same…because in the end, that object i am talking about may just as well be a song…maybe i am hearing it in the morning through my headphones on the 9 o’clock train, packed into the car (i am holding my fingertips up to the ceiling to steady me because there is nowhere else to hold on to) it gives me space through it’s sounds…or maybe i am hearing that same song again as i am working, pacing me through an idea…i take it’s rhythm into consideration…and maybe i hear it one more time before going to sleep…letting it create the landscape into which i fall, dreaming…

yes, lately, i’ve been modifying. feeling the soreness of those emotional muscles as i try to break old habits…i am salvaging myself. and here are some salvaged tunes that I’ve been rocking out to…:::…

nicely said, and our greens are aligned musically, finally. i did wonder though, why tanz der tuefel instead of hummel?

sometimes, just because one track might be listened to more doesn't mean that the other shouldn't have a chance...i like to leave it on repeat and get inside (and besides...see the previous post)...

Those artists who do not reinvent themselves are doomed to eternally play Vegas.

I mean that literally as well as metaphorically.

Artists, musicians, actionists must continue to move at the speed of atoms across the universe, always in motion. Even when a log in the forest is dead and decaying it is changing, reinventing itself as a host for other organisms. Wouldn't it be nice if artists were as generous.

yes. life is like that. full of movement. and even when things seem still, maybe it's just because everything else around is travelling with the same velocity? thanks for your comment, tomas. always grounding.
