Halloween ’07

I never was, am always to be,
No one ever saw me, nor ever will
And yet I am the confidence of all
To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball.

note: Happy halloween everyone. A small playlist, something for after party. (plus I am listening to a lot of minimalist lately. So here is a somewhat quiet list.) Don’t forget the riddle. Trick-or-treat.

  2. withoutwords says:

    beautiful playlist. just perfect for an evening in.

    btw, is the answer to the riddle ‘the future’?

  3. sam says:

    Good call on Bartok for Halloween. I made the same decision.

  4. Moka says:

    I remember last halloween you also did a classical post, love the healthy Bach overdose, you’ve just turned one of my best friends to start checking the motel after I’ve been trying to persuade him for 8 months without success (si, hablo de ti, pinche burro)

    The catalan song is chilling, beautiful voice. Supposedly catalan is similar to spanish but I didn’t caught a word she said, do you happen to know the lyrics for it by any chance ;)?

  5. squashed says:

    I am still alive. Just lost my connection.

    the answer is “tomorrow”. Okay now I have to check email. probably I’ll jsut lick “dump all unread” heh.

  6. Moka says:

    Hey squashed! I was worried about you. Don’t dump my mails! I think I sent you around 3 or 2, I was very careful not to flood.

    Hello there, Did you have a happy halowen?

The song makes its imprint
in the air, making itself felt,
a felt world. Here, there,
the stunned silence

of knowing I will not remember
what I heard;

futures that will never happen,
a fluidity we cannot achieve
except as a child
creating possibility.

This is the untranslatable song
hidden in the earth.
