“Guenter has perhaps achieved my ambition of the past few weeks in his work, finding those inner landscapes constructed in dreams and bringing them forth into the physical realm.”
I feel as though I’ve been slumbering for many weeks—and I suppose in a way I have. Every waking moment has been consumed by as many moments spent in sleep. I’ve felt the things of dreams spilling out into my waking world, and it has been a rather beautiful thing.
Beautiful as it may be to surround one’s self with dreams, I feel it is time to step back into waking life, to focus on my duties here at the station—my duties to you, fair denizens of our humble home. Do not think you have been forgotten! Oh no, such a thought is absolute comedy! Close to my heart in every moment, waking or not, is my love for this place and the people that make it so very special.
And so I am here to share a bit of music with you. Something quite special, a song called ”Wind on Water” by Guenter Schlienz. Guenter has perhaps achieved my ambition of the past few weeks in his work, finding those inner landscapes constructed in dreams and bringing them forth into the physical realm.
He uses a particular set of tools in his efforts, very particular tools. As a matter of fact he has built a number of synthesizers to create the sounds he uses to transport us there—to stand in a world of constant change, a place held in a timeless present.
It’s a place where… Hmm, I don’t suppose I truly have left my dream world behind, have I? Ha ha, it does have a way of leaving an impression on you, doesn’t it? I feel that particularly strongly after meeting the Pink Man. Is he an entity come to me as I sleep? Is he a small, quiet piece of me trying to communicate with the large, loud piece? Is it nothing more than a dream? The later seems unlikely.
Well, held captive in a state of navel-gazing or no, please do have a listen to “Wind on Water”. It truly is beautiful.
