My Favourite Things

John Coltrane

I have always been attracted to representations of time.
I have never been conscious about it until now, but it's always been there, in one way or another.

Something's not quite happened yet or it's just passed by...

When I was a teenager, I would loop songs in my room (when I still had a stereo you had to get up and push the button to go to the previous songs, and every 4/6min I would get up and rewind it). I would lay on the bed, close my eyes and just listen for hours.
I think the very first time it happened and I felt the urge to do this, was with Led Zeppelin's 'Going to California'. I had just bought my first ever Zep CD 'How The West Was Won' and I was catapulted into this endless river of notes that made my mind drown in melancholy and happiness.

I just kept doing this through the years and sometimes it would last a few hours, sometimes entire, consecutive days. I figured out it was helping me expel the ideas in my head and making them come to life. Nowadays you have Lo-Fi music for focussing and studying, I had my loops.

And so the song I've incorporated at the beginning of this newsletter does just that: it sends your brain into a trance-like state, but don't worry, it's far from being repetitive or 'boring'. Give it a listen, see how you feel :)

Here below are some moments I got to capture around Europe. I still shoot videos sometimes but I haven't put them together in a while, maybe I'll have to do it soon...
