Practical Time Travel
Earthly Delights CD001 (1998)
The music ... retains that quality of being created somewhere outside
of conscious human involvement. Whatever practical time travel may be,
all we have are disembodied titles like Electrostatic Field Equation
and Gravitational Repulsion to suggest vague imagery for the meandering
washes of tone and sound. If I might venture further (and someone please
keep me covered in case I disappear up my own arse) this could almost
be the experience of being as far from the grinding machines and noise
of humanity as possible, drifting into the vacuum of deep space, carried
away into the void by solar winds.
The recent BBC2 documentary
The Planets instilled in me a sense of longing for places like
Neptune and Mercury, which seemed impossibly rich from the absence of
life and all its clutter. The universe is so vast, diverse and beautiful
that frankly, who gives a monkey's if anyone else is out there. Who would
go into a shop for something they've already got too much of at home?
Ahem...such musings come back to me whilst listening to this CD, if that's
any use to those of you wondering what it actually sounds like.
