Music (October)

Music is about dancing and singing, inspiration and longing. Combinations of sounds relay emotions, signal otherworlds, assist memory. After that, definitions become theoretical, psychological, analogical. This October, listening to Tim Stevens play his ‘I’ll Tell You Later’, we hear how Saturday becomes Sunday. Saturday is improvisational again, a range of activities that may be slow or busy, reflective or frenetic. This includes touches of the hymn, formal and rich and deep, that holds come Sunday. The Spaniards have a saying, “It’s Monday in the world”, and music exists for that reason, making bearable the hard fact that life goes on.
