Everyday activities which keep a human being occupied are usually chalked down as being mundane. How does one cut down on the amount of time it takes to brush teeth? There's an app for that. Want your pizza delivered in 5 minutes or less? Of course, who wouldn't?
It's no secret that there is a modern impetus on spending more time doing what moves us; things we love; the things that move us -- but less time for the in between.
Ever wonder what it's like to be a synthesizer? So much to say, so many ways of saying it, yet they aren't even able to tie their shoes, let alone walk their dog in the park on a breezy summers day.
I was lucky enough to sit down with Pional's synthesizer recently for an interview. The meeting was brief.
Me: If you had to describe what it felt like to move at a fast pace in slow motion after you'd just dropped some E at a festival in Barcelona where you'd just locked eyes with a mystical creature who you found yourself very sexually attracted to, what do you think you'd say?
Pional's synthesizer: *"Tempest" starts playing*
Me: Interesting, any thoughts on what you'd say the essence of life is?
Pional's synthesizer: *"Tempest" continues playing*
Stop for a minute. Listen to what Pional's synth has to say. Be grateful for what you are able to do, because at the end of it all you could be like the synth and void of any real experiences.
