i wanted to share a special moment i had this evening. when leaving the office i had a sore head, so i put the black dog's ambient mix (which i posted recently) on my HD25s and started walking home. as i was walking, slowly a really intense combination occured between the music i was listening to and the environment around me. the sky was clear and there was a beautiful sunset. i walked home marvelling at the sky as i listened to the black dog mix. i arrived home but realised i couldn't stay inside. i put down my bags then continued walking, heading down to the ocean, just near my place. the feeling was really amazing. i think i passed one person the whole time i was out. there was this incredibly powerful sense of still-ness and calm. it combined with the beautiful sounds of the black dog's mix to create a really intense experience. it was yet another reminder (as if i needed another one) of the strong impact music can have.
i took a series of pictures while walking and listening the mix, which i wanted to share with you. i've put them in chronological order. the last one was taken just before the mix finished. i am not sure how well they convey the beauty of my surroundings, but i wanted to try to express this to you. it was a very beautiful moment.
