No sense is as acute as hearing. Where the eyes would deceive, the ears usually identify unmistakably. We rely heavily on our sight because it is brighter and easier to perceive instantly without completely recognizing what we see. But it is through sound that we not only perceive the world around us but the same world within us. Our eyes see only three of many possible dimensions. Our ears are not limited – even by sound (for example: it is by our ears that we physically balance).
It is with this in mind that I look forward to tonight’s journey into (and simultaneously out of) space and time.
Pour yourself a drink of something nice, make yourself comfortable, put on those headphones, tune in from 4:00 to 6:00, close your eyes and let the sound move you.
