Dialogue Suspension is a 27 minute meditation on conversations with sound.
It is an improvisation on my Korg Minilogue, where I'm responding to very small movements in the synthesis engine. As it speaks and transforms, I reply in small changes through onboard effects and the manipulation of synthesis parameters.
In all my years of listening to drone and ambient music, I've always been attracted to its ability to suspend my awareness in a sound experience that is constantly, gently shifting. My awareness of these transformations is only there if I remain focused and listening.
For lots of us, now is the time for more hugs. A time where compassion, clarity and awareness are keeping me hopeful. In moments of overwhelm, I've found suspending myself in ambient music has a similar effect to meditation, to sit with your experience as an observer, as these transformations happen and swirl, the sounds hug your ears. I've found moments where I know myself as the observer of transformation, and not the content of the transformations themselves. Thoughts as drifting clouds, feelings as welcome guests. You may drift off into the blue realm of soft imaginations and R.E.M.
However you find this music, let its blessings find you.
