the most beautiful thing you’ll hear

"Probably the most beautiful thing you’ll hear in a long while. Beauty all around us, it just needs the right people to tweak it. I’ve nothing else to add with my clumsy words: just go, follow the link and take five minutes; take a break and really listen to it."

Tom Waits (on Robert Wilson): “Wilson, he’s always playing with time. I heard a recording recently of crickets slowed way down. It sounds like a choir, it sounds like angel music. Something sparkling, celestial with full harmony and bass parts – you wouldn’t believe it. It’s like a sweeping chorus of heaven, and it’s just slowed down, they didn’t manipulate the tape at all. So I think when Wilson slows people down, it gives you a chance to watch them moving through space. And there’s something to be said for slowing down the world.”
