I love that you write "nothing of importance happens online" and "everything is very real" and here we're inside now for 13 full days, tomorrow we can go out, but where? avoiding people, heading towards some construction a couple of blocks away maybe. There's something amazing about the flatness of it all, and that's helped the music, do listen if you can to the few I put up yesterday, tomorrow a piece with two shakuhachi playing maybe three tones mainly, could go on forever, we get to look down our street for maybe half a kilometer in each direction from the 4th floor window, we're as close to non-existence as possible...

Best, Alan

dear all
i am trying to read but cannot quite concentrate, and thus give up. I thank thoseĀ  of you send some great music (I loved Alan Sondheim's qifteli dirge , and perhaps we can also sometimes share some images, paintings? Thanks also for some of the videos. I think I sent you the link to my last Moon dance/film, but it was too long, Danielle Imara suggested.

Having started to read Daniel's longer post, I am relieved to report it is not so for me, at all:

[He writes]>>pandemic.....where we are faced to cope with just being online, where everything happens online>>

in fact the opposite is the case. everything is clearly observed, close, and far, in the countryside where i am (having left Houston and London, and crossed over the channel and the various new-old EU borders, back to the little Saarland), everything is very real, nothing of importance happens online.
