It's a busy, chaotic and fragmented world. Maybe we can think slow
) and do some long listening.
If you've got the time during this hot, hazy summer, invest yourself in some art best absorbed slowly. A few examples worth exploring:
Eno's hour-long "Thursday Afternoon"
. His "Lightness - Music for the Marble Palace"
, a one hour selection of a hypothetically endless piece, and his tribute to Long Now, "Bell Studies"
A long classic single from The Orb
Inspired by his own Sleep Concerts
, Robert Rich's 7 hour "Somnium", released on DVD
. Oh yeah, there's also an app for that
Nurse With Wound's hypnotic multi-disc release, "Soliloquy for Lilith"
The seemingly endless output of Pete Namlook
Harold Budd's droney "Abandoned Cities"
Steve Roach's slowly evolving "Immersion" series - "One", "Two", "Three"
("Three" itself is 3 discs long) and "Four"
La Monte Young's minimalist epic "The Well Tuned Piano"
And lastly, a 639 year long composition by John Cage
