On my 2nd day back in TT (yesterday) ... I was feeling 'bored'. As a friend of mine once asked: "What is
boredom?" Another friend described it last night as a state of angst. For me it is a state of restlessness and impatience ... for some reason not feeling the 'right fit' of myself in the place or moment. I couldn't think of anything to do or anywhere to go that would satisfy me. So ... to entertain myself, I played Dandelion
and recorded the rhythm using Garage Band on Satya
. Added some simple synth sounds. Called my friend Nicola to see what she was up to. Had to use my cellular phone, as my land phone is dead. Nic was also 'bored'. We kept calling each other back and forth in frustration, trying to come up with ideas for things to do. In my idleness I recorded my end of one of our conversations. The cellular connection was bad. She kept breaking up.
for the resulting soundtrack: "Conversation
".(At the beginning you can hear the birds outside, having a conversation of their own).
