Light into old structures

(If we let it) death opens us up, makes us curious, and we can’t help but be a little touched by its effects when it happens to those we deeply love. (If we dare) we can open ourselves up widely next to that person going through the process, from which hallowed spot we can’t fail to be brushed by some of the expansiveness and light as it comes in to dissolve old structures; both their old structures as they leave the physical realms and also our old structures, especially our old beliefs about “what dealth is”, even as we look our grief straight in the eyes and deal with all that entails for as long as it takes to heal.

Four and three-quarter seasons…

‘The New Four Seasons’ – complete with birdsong, electric guitar and didgeridoo – is all about the total reinvention of a piece of music that we thought we knew by heart…and it is also about very much more than that. When I heard it, I was much more deeply moved than I was prepared for and, in it, I have found an echo of something that is happening on a far broader scale; in our arts, in our world. Is it alright, or even possible, to play with an established composition – one as intricately complex as this – in a new way, to make it your own, to alter it? I find I want to say, the music itself is not sacrosanct; it is our creative urge and the need to allow that free rein that is. Kennedy has dared to show that music is certainly not sacrosanct and all the better for it; its as though the strictly demarcated ‘four seasons’ of our world (even the most intricately complex parts, most learned-by-heart aspects of it) have suddenly found room for something more, their edges blurred and expanded to fit more in, our very experience of them – of everything – softened, leaving us with far more than the sum of their parts.
