“The echo coming from afar always moistens the ear.
It is a paradox: The sounds that clouds the listening emphasizes it’s own hanger, it’s own curiosity… There is a moment, where the closer sounds become transparent, too bright, too evident, almost blinding. In this very moment, the undefined sounds show their particular ability to seduce, revealing their erotism, their art. The sounds dress with a peculiar beauty, a beauty the musician has not listened before, and possibly will never catch. Then, that voice afar sounds much closer than all closer sounds together. They can caress you from distance, without touching your skin.”
Il rumore lontano (The Distant Noise), Xabier Erkizia, 2017
