Silence is so important to the soul. We are born from silence and we return to silence after we perish, our lives are just a sequence of ripples among a sea of silence. Sometimes it's more important to let the sound disappear inside your heart to let the true sound of the universe fill your thoughts and emotions.
This is the final song from a small triptych of vocal arrangements we had on the playlist, starting with Rosalía's NANA, followed by Imogen Heap's Hide and Seek and ending with both "Lindisfarnes" by James Blake.
The expressive potential of the human voice is not only not lost among these electronic effects but it's amplified, it gives us a special feeling only our times can portrait, it gives us a different kind of nostalgia, driven by the anxiety of the future and the uncertainty of our condition as human beings.
Silence, may we all remember silence and its crucial importance to our existence.
