WTM #1155: Summer Birthday ~ wReck thiS meSS ~
Amsterdam ~ 16.07.12 / 16.50-18.50
This is for me & everyone who has a summer birthday, when celebrations are less likely & less intense & those who reflect & touch on nostalgia, use it to muse & drift but don't succumb. You avoid becoming grounded in a time & resentful of those born since yr birth. I don’t often have the op to do a radio show on my birthday and a birthday means some leeway in indulgence or nostalgia or both. I am constantly trying to balance the addiction to new sounds with the amazing ability of [old] music to reassemble entire architectures of nostalgia, of being able to conjure up summer feelings intact & the feelings attached to summer – glee & freedom, exploration & melancholy, loneliness & the sound of kids playing. I combine b'day thematics with summer sounds: waves, kids playing, beach, cicadas, crickets, wind thru trees - the original music.
