In our opening, we talk about traveling the sonic tapestries; a turn of phrase that sounded pretty good at the time. Anyway, we don’t usually talk about the meaning behind this cryptic phrase so I figured lets name this episode with that name. When I am in a state of flow, creating a setlist for Soundscape, sometimes something magical happens and I feel the presence of a theme, or a world being created or called out of the background. I actually only intended this episode to be a short jaunt into some new music, but it turned out that the muse had a higher calling. So, I will let you piece together your own meanings here, but for me, a story played out that was meaningful. I hope it is for you as well.
Next time around, we will have a proper theme.
