It Takes a Little Time

  • Alan Hawkshaw & Brian BennettMon Amour (Synthesizer & Percussion, 1974)
  • VelcroOne Day (One Day, 2011)

I’m not sorry for the absence, because i’ve learned so much in that time. I’ve seen lizards, concrete and blue water. I’ve eaten my weight in chilli many times over.

Here’s a playlist dotted with casually sincere sounds and remarks. Hawkshaw & Bennett “Lords of Library music”, Velcro, a charming and highly adequate Melbournian, Madcliff & Brunelle with their forgotten gems of late 20th century Americana.

“Hello Beach Girls” is in there for good measure. Enjoy whatever weather you’re given, overcast days usually make for better photographs.

    Moka,i am glad to listen this wonderful music selection. I really like it toooo much!
    Thanks I love you , be here more often!

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.
