Just a reminder that you can hear a radio interview I did with Tish Pearlman for her program Out of Bounds this morning on WSKG-FM in New York and Northern Pennsylvania. It can also be heard on a live stream online at wskg.org. The show airs at 11:30 AM, just before Ira Glass and This American Life comes on at noon.
One of the questions asked was about what sort of music I listen to in the studio and the one specific piece I mentioned was Tabula Rasa from composer Arvo Pärt, one that I’ve mentioned here in the past. It always inspires me and reminds me of the drive to find the big silence of the open landscape in my work. The piece above, Eternally Free, is a favorite of mine that hangs in my studio and is one that I am always reminded of by this music.
I hope you can tune in this morning but for now, here’s the second movement from this wonderful piece of music which is title Silentium: Senza Moto which translates as Silence: Motionless. The big quiet.
