A dialectical site of poetry, painting and the odd musical excursion into the unknown.

I can imagine you on the train, watching the world slowly go by and reflecting on life. The tempo of the music is quite like the pace of a train travelling through the countryside. And then the slowing down at the end as you reach your destination- the mind stops wandering and it’s time to get on with a busy day.

Thanks Devika youre right the tempo was pitched to the train. There’s a hypnotic effect of slow moving carriages over the tracks. The piece was tapping into the memory of moving slowly through Hungarian landscape, somewhere that has connected with my own “inner music” on a deeper level. Either way it’s a journey I feel compelled to travel on.

Indeed, a journey of now and of the past, I have vivid memories as a boy, a traveller, watching the countryside rolling by. I think tunes like these come from way back then :-)
