about

One night when everybody else was asleep I strolled around in the lower regions, close to the garbage system. On a wall I saw a sign I'd never seen before. Or maybe I had, but in a dream?

It was a handmade wooden sign with the words "The Shrine" written in red. It almost looked like a seal. I followed the sign and ended up at a spiral staircase leading downstairs. From the bottom I heard music, reverberating and echoing through the cylinder space, creating beautiful arpeggios and rhythms I'd never heard before.

At the bottom of the staircase was a tiny room. It was a a club. In a dark corner stood a clone of Fela Kuti, playing on a keyboard. He didn't have his saxophone around is neck. Maybe the engineers couldn't find any brass on the ship so he had to play on an vintage modular synth from the museum instead?

Three women and a young boy were dancing in front of him, slowly, with their eyes closed. It looked like they were moving backwards in time. Fela Kuti was swaying slowly from side to side, tweaking the knobs, while his right hand played the same notes over and over again.

The night after I went back to The Shrine again, but I couldn't find the staircase. Even the sign was gone.

This is the music I heard that night.

Night Gestalt Stockholm, Sweden

No drums. No bass. No chords. The arpeggio is everything in one: melody, rhythm, harmony - ringing out like a bell in space forever. It's the start, and it's the end. It needs to be free.
