Galactic Chariot

Sound and Gestures

Hosted by Natasha Pirard, who also provided the photograph.

“Just as certain creatures are the last examples of a form of life which nature has abandoned, I wondered whether music were not the solo example of the form which might have served —had language, the forms of words the possibility of analysing ideas, never been inverted —for the communication of souls. Music is like a possibility which has never been developed, humanity having taken different paths, those of language, spoken and written.” Marcel Proust.

“Those who dream of a great feast may weep the next morning. Those who dream of weeping may enjoy the hunt the next day. While they dream, they do not know they are dreaming.

Best of 2021

Although for many its been a desperately sad year, with hundreds of thousands impacted in various ways by COVID-19, Brexit and other local, personal, national and international events, it’s been an extraordinary year for musical releases.

I have chosen 13 recordings to suit the mood, in no particular order, for Squatney Council (UK):

Melissa Pons – Wolf Soundscapes (s/r)
Geneva Skeen – Double Bind (ROOM40)
CM von Hausswolff – The Wind In Kirtipur (Erototox Decodings)

And two items I found myself:

venoztks – Light Breaker (Vtks)

I couldn’t find room for excellent work from Olivia Block, Susje Ritsch, Strom | Morts, Ian Wellman, Yann Novak, Brook Hinton, Jeremy Young, Tony Elleh, Innode, Travelogue, Charlie Campagna, Jim Haynes, Yenting Hsu, Ian Hawgood, Mike Dobler and countless others suffering to various degrees.
