A Vashti Bunyan record from 1970.
The church bells across the street
from my house, recorded on an iPhone.
They once rang like clockwork every Sunday. Now, in lockdown, they are gone.
The hiss from a much loved vinyl record.
The static on our television sets; radiation left over from the Big Bang.
What are these sounds that haunt our lives..
floating in the static and the noise all around us, just beyond our grasp?
Are they radio waves, hallucinations? Voices from the past?
Beginning with the physical, we become the ephemeral. We are changed.
Emeshed in the universal fabric, we are reflecting light.
Voice – Sananda Maitreya
Sample – Vashti Bunyan, ‘Glow Worms’ (1970)
