Ethereal, mystical, devastating, healing. A wonderful combination of stems. Haskel is incredible. Thank you for sharing your grief and beauty.

Very effective expression of your experience with Alaska. Earthy and transcendent. Your Imaginal Cell page is wonderful. I found the eagles and this - “…we are complacent consumers subsisting on abundant trash in great numbers becoming lazy, malnourished, and distracted from the grace of our true nature.” - so spot on. Remarkable.

Thank you so much for visiting The Imaginal Cell — I don’t know where it is going but is the next direction. One of the lovely things about feedback like yours is that it shows me how I am not alone in what I am feeling. Thank you.

What a sonic painting! — I’ve also traveled to Alaska some years ago - an unforgettable experience indeed - and your remix conjures up many memories, some of them quite bittersweet, because one can’t help realize that some of those wonders are under much pressure and/or disappearing.

Thanks dear Spin. It is bittersweet. Beauty that we know is being irrevocably transformed — and while the transformation itself can create something beautiful — the loss is profound. Thank you for listening.

Mixed emotions listening to this. It’s a truly beautiful creation to listen to but it also makes me sad as the outlook isn’t very positive.
Good art should evoke emotions and this certainly does.

Thank you Per. It truly is a challenge to hold both the beauty of the world around us concurrent with the shadow of civilization that is eating away at our natural resources. xxxx

Epic. Just epic. It’s yet again true that artists are born from suffering.

Not sure how I missed this, but it definitely took me there. Had to stop what I was doing and close my eyes.

Jeris — thanks for sharing such wonderful material to work with, and thanks for listening. I am glad to hear the work took you there — I was hoping to express some of the sublime power of what I saw when I was in Alaska.

Great story, Susan


“There’s a lot of people around Alaska now who are actually running the place who claim to just have gone there for the summer once 30 years ago. And that seems to be what happens. It’s just like anyplace else, only with mountains and moose.” — Tom Bodett
