If Alan Watts has taught me anything, then I'm going to say that Nuages is right here, right now. Perhaps more appropriately, Nuages has me vibing in the present. It's my opinion that the past and future are powerful illusions built on experience and expectation, respectively. "Dreams," a downtempo electronica instrumental, works much like a course correction. I breathe in those delicate strings, and feel the crisp drumbeats patter along "” embodiments of the ethereal, guiding me back to center.
And as black implies white, Nuages' celestial productions imply the humanity that went into their creation. Can't wait to hear what he drops next.
