london tears

although I generally advocate listening to the world there are times when picking the right iPod soundtrack is the best way to deal with difficult environments. Moving through crowds in London is, for me, one of those situations.

There are numerous songs and compositions that work, but I almost always return to the heartachingly beautiful textures of Tim Hecker; his music creates the kind of ‘world as cinema’ that I dream of making in my performances.
This picture was taken as I walked north from Waterloo listening to his new album "an imaginary landscape".
In my ears are low pulsing tones and warm washes of distorted harmonies, in my eyes are tears.
