Black Ambient 006

Acoustic guitar, glockenspiel, synth, speaking computer.

A dark ambient electronic composition created after a reflective journey to Europe in 2006. Images and lyrics that consider aspects of our internal dialogue.

Sometimes thoughts are best left unsaid. They have a life once they enter the world as words, and sometimes they may be wished back to the realm of thought.

Internal dialogue is an essential element of the processing of ideas. Creative, emotional, political and spiritual. Its a questioning activity, but can slip into a trivial sphere (a kind of ‘monogossip’) , a visitation probably best minimised. The dialogue is present as soon as we can generate independant thought, so you would imagine we would be able at some stage to make a good judgement about which thoughts to externalise.

The washy fountain colours offer a dreamlike vision in contrast to the murky waters.

Jumping through hoops
Dancing accordingly
Spinning
Paddling upstream
Fanning the fire
Maybe I need to read more
Maybe I’ve read too much.
