TUESDAY MARCH TWENTY NINE
Today's music is for deep, soul satisfying relaxation: music with some silence in or between the notes. The musicians stir the silence; the listener has it enlivened.
But this is no mood-making show.
The British electronic duo Kinobe get the bliss flowing with "Slip Into Something More Comfortable"--a song that you swear you've heard before. Something that sounds familiar and at the same time creatively unique.
Ambient electronica isn't the only genre represented today. Johann S. Bach, Claude Debussy, Gabriel Faure, and Aaron Copland all have created some brilliant and beautiful silence in their music, as have Donovan and Enya.
Once the music starts, I keep it going in one continuous flow, with no commercial or other interruptions, and no pauses for artificial silence. This week the silence is in the music.
"I guess I got whacked hard in the mystery department when I was little. I found the world completely and totally fascinating then - it was like a dream." ~David Lynch
The fascinating and dream like way in which David Lynch sees the world has been infused into his unique body of creative work during his 62 prolific years. With David Lynch's birthday coming up this Sunday I decided this week's show would be the perfect time to play some songs from a compilation cd that I put together a couple years ago as a birthday present for David. Tune in Saturday night at 9pm!
