I see you - sitting at your keyboard - fingers at the ready, mind cycling with ideas and entry points - starting and stopping as each sentence leads to a dead end.
The idea of what you want to say teasingly present but unformed, elusive and hard to grasp.
It’s in this state that I turn to music like this.
I’m not looking for influence or energy - I’m seeking space, a calm environment in which to lie down and let my thoughts coalesce.
I can’t rush this - if I reach out too soon they scatter.
I imagine a dreamscape of a million different ideas - like snowflakes - each one unique and beautiful but too fragile to hold.
I feel the attraction as certain ideas connect - I marvel as they join together to create something new, something bigger, something that couldn’t be created without their participation.
I watch as this fully formed idea floats down, still fragile but assured and smile as it allows itself to flow through my fingers.
Thank you Aidan for the assist.

About the Curator: Andrew McCluskey
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the Dark Forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top, they would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
As a psychology graduate I studied how sound affects human performance.
As a musician I compose instrumental music that stimulates your brain but doesn't mess with your language centers, leaving you free to be creative and brilliant without distraction.
As the founder of musicto I’m on a mission to inspire a global audience of music lovers and artists through the development of people powered playlists.
