The combination of your voice, both the spoken and sung words, and Stefan’s backing is very beautiful.

Thank you for listening, and for the kind words. Stefan’s backing was the inspiration for the work.

Very well done. I read your notes before I listened and saw your reference to the I Ching. This is the second time I’ve heard reference to it in two days. Yesterday it was on a radio program I listen to and the speaker was a journalist… Brooke Gladstone, co-host of WNYC’s “On The Media.” I own multiple translations of the I Ching myself and have used it in times of struggle.

Interesting you threw the 36. The number 36 in Jewish tradition would be the double of 18, which is the number associated with life. L’chaim! Great work.

Thanks so much for listening.

I am interested in hearing that program! I don’t think I ever heard anyone mention the IChing on the radio!

Numbers are quite fascinating. Once you start paying attention to them, it’s hard to stop. :-)

The reference to the I Ching was a passing one. She mentions consulting the coins to decide whether to take a fellowship where she would be going to Russia to study. How this connected to the main storyline, I can’t quite remember. The show’s theme is around how the New Hampshire Primary became what it is today. It is fascinating.

Just Google “On the Media” WNYC and listen to this week’s show. The segment where she is talking is the introduction to the first story.

Thank you! Thank you for the terrific inspiration, and quality material. Once I heard the track, the song pretty much wrote itself.

Echoes of the White Cube project, the way the voices are like northern lights. I like it. The spoken word is crisp and matter of fact, in a brilliant contrast to the ghostly harmonies.

Thank you! I love that the “white cube” is a reference point in this conversation. While I was recording, I also thought of the white cube. There is a line in here “hold onto that light” that is very much in the timbre of the white cube.

i’m listening to my heart opening as i heart your voice and the sounds of the outback in surround. we meditate amidst the ashes, feeing the Phoenix in our chests rise up through our cathartic song. your incredible words and melodies are angelic, honest, haunting and hopeful. beautiful art Susan.
