It was a post-modern experience, like Shakespeare once observed: a "world without end-hour." I was at-once deconstructed to my most vulnerable and open-state of awareness, whereupon like prayer, I transcended to the realm of peace, of quiet, of contemplation and of pragmatic resolve: that life and equality, in all of its most fragile states, are in a constant state of motion; and that we, as observers and hearers and witnesses of these most precious things, must do all we can to apply this motion of accepted peace, to all those affected, around: all these groups, not just suspect classes or historical groups of discrimination, but those groups to whom we do not in time now, offer and extend equal treatment, access, remedy and acknowledgement, under the rule of law. I thought of love, compassion, of union and of life, in all its most protected states. Varied proportions and lengths of experimentally-made sounds characterize their composition. But it is perhaps the compassion of struggle for life, for family and of love, and witnessable acceptance of modern societies to and for our world's most unacknowledged and perhaps most deserving, groups, and also for ourselves, that moves me the most during their ethereal-sounding, classic compositions. I hope we hear much more from the PC and I offer such high regards to their composition as I do the outreach, contemplations and search of Sigur Ros.
Many cheers for PC's bravery and integrity, most importantly, their search for truth: that we might hear it, see it and understand something bigger and better than ourselves. I think PC's music sets her audiences free, and I was greatly impassioned by such quintessentially human, harmony, using only common instruments and inventions to achieve the most optimal use of time, sound and space. It was classic, basic and timeless-- and most provocative: I kept thinking: where is it that our rule of law went wrong among the ancient Athenian philosophy: and the answer sounded: women...and slaves. Yet, we have thankfully discovered this flaw in modern democracy, and remedied it throughout the due course and struggle of life, spanning whole centuries, sadly from a universal perspective and anticipation of time... but this one one thing lasting for universal correction, meaning for equal application, to make whole, our intents, for a true conceptualization of "fairness," for is orientation, in its most varied and yet common, union-state, like a nation-state.
I hope we are witness to this equality remedy, during our lifetimes. If we can deconstruct our most basic tenets of democracy's equal application to ALL groups suffering, then like PC's sound, we can accomplish and achieve great things, within this lifetime; a Renaissance of sorts, of civil liberties and economy.
