II Pause, a piece by Matthew Ariaratnam

I want to share this blog article by my friend Matthew Ariaratnam.  I’m very sad I didn’t get to experience his piece (this time around) but I think the concept is fantastic. Essentially, he set up a public listening station where a single person (at a time) could listen, together with Matthew, to a 10-minute soundscape piece he created, literally with a “side of lemonade” (optional, of course).  I don’t do the piece justice but you should read what he has to say about the multi-day presentation and the stories that emerged through the connections he made.

The article highlights the power of taking a time out, and taking the time to connect to one’s community and environment through sound.  Beautiful!
