Once in a while our brains seem unusually receptive to incoming sound, and every tone that floods in sounds hyper-musical, three-dimensional…almost edible. At sunset, I made, and marvelled at, a shuffled playlist of Oscar Peterson and Nina Simone. Then classical piano (Debussy, Chopin)…and gypsy electronic remix stuff. Even some of that mystical resonating bell stuff is working for me (and maybe even aligning my dog’s chakras!) as the night fades. Maybe the truly great makers of music always have ears like this.
