303: “Black Hole” by Shawn Lee

There is a part of the universe... over that way.Consider the simplest of everyday actions. For instance, consider the act of opening the door to your dwelling, and setting down your things.

It is an orchestra of movement. Tendons, muscles, joints, anticipation, reaction, all unconscious and automatic. You don’t even consider it, as you contemplate greater affairs.

Your brain is the most complicated thing in the known universe. A multitude of voices within you, serving up millions of years of evolution in your every movement and reaction.

And somewhere within the chorus, is the still, small voice you call your self, making things we all call choices.

What do you do with it all? And what all is inside that incredible ultra-supercomputer riding atop your shoulders?*

Shawn Lee considers such things. Whilst he drinks tea and converses with wisefolk under magnificent trees more ancient than the ages of all the prophets added together.

They stare into the face of black holes and write funky songs.

Shawn Lee makes music for fun, for money, and because he has to, else his supercomputer brain would explode out of his face with the force of ten thousand sneezes.

Making life make sense, every day, here, for you… Am I.

From Synthesizers in Space (2012)… “Black Hole”…

Enjoy.
