This is how it’s going to go: we’re going to talk about what goes on between people and sounds. We’re going to go into a space, into a room.
Go to listen to the recording – two voices in a space, in a room – and try to remember what you were going to say about listening. One open chord going like a bell and a conversation going on in the background that has gone before it can be deciphered. This is how it might go.
Once there was going to be a song with just one lyric, the word ‘believe’. At some point the word would go from verb to noun and become ‘belief’, but you might not notice this straight away because the rhythm and melody would go on the same. Because you still think of it now, the song is kept going, although it never went anywhere. One way in which something keeps going without going anywhere.
