Music that exists in this world but is not of it. August 1, 2006
Written by leakstev
Music that exists in this world but is not of it.
I have found that each of the soundscape releases approaches this possibility with differing degrees of resonance. Some of the music flies by one day and at a later listening settles long enough to engage with in a meaningful manner. Some of the music is immediately unsettling and demands attention - work even.
That there is an emotive quality contained in the soundscapes is undeniable. There are times when my experiencing of the soundscapes is entirely connected to senses of imminent or recalled loss. In this way the soundscapes afford the listener the opportunity to reexperience their love for what was, and then to engage more fully with the what-is-to-be-becoming.
The Salisbury soundscapes are at times beautiful, mournful, playful, edgy. They are even indescribable.
For me, their real power lies in the veracity they give to the awareness and the understanding that there is benevolence and love underlying everything.
As Fripp elaborates elsewhere:
“Complex fields of intelligence, to enter our world, that is to become more fully real by becoming more fully part of the totality of worlds, need people to anchor the points between which the field of intelligence can dwell and operate. Not so much in people, as between them. In a sense, a group is giving birth to an angel by providing its "spirit" or "intelligence" a framework to inhabit. “
In this way, the Salisbury soundscapes provide the listener with the opportunity to consider larger and more intimate (or infinite) possibilities. The opportunity is there, the music falls upon the person, the person can then make their way past the equipment, the musician, the cathedral, the gauze of emotion and arrive in the place the music comes from.
The Salisbury music constitutes a wonderful opportunity by which to “reexperience ones innocence” - to visit the place music comes from.

The Starlight pieces are some of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard. And dont forget Time Stands Still. Highly recommended.

Beautiful, and of some significance because of the graceful allusions to by-gone years (how much for ’Fracture’ indeed, venal gigster!). There’s a bit more of what I would term ’fear and trembling’ in this performance, which leads me to recommend Read more
