On the edge of the morning, when the outside light slowly rises to challenge that of the lamps inside, it seems there are always more sounds in music than when one listens to it on a day, everything is fabulously funny, everything relates to everything, music to music, all to everything, I don't feel like sleeping, if we could all go backwards and get back to the edge of the morning I would walk and watch the darkness fading...

There oh there

So I am in Helsinki, and I survived these two first weeks. The sunbeams flow through my window between ten and two so that I don't see anything on my laptop's screen, but I guess if I moved bed and desk I would wake up at too high temperatures. This is the seventh floor, there is a lot of light and air. Mornings and late afternoons the sky just above is very dark, a profound blue. It feels very elevated.My window is open all the time, as it was in Tampere. I cannot live in a closed room. It is a bit chilly at dawn sometimes, so I just... [Lire la suite]

Boris + Growing @ Tavastia, Helsinki, 2nd of May 2008

{New keys for a new home} The hectic days of farewell before Vappu, the packing of months of stuff into filthy used post boxes and stuffy dust whirling in the air, the moving itself, finally, after a restless night, and its misunderstandings, its rush to arrive on time and still one hour to wait tough, were over, and I smiled holding the precious keys in my hand, a larger and larger smile as I identified the familiar buildings and places in the summer sun of my new city. It was still shining lower on the horizon when I took the way... [Lire la suite]

Days 2 (Thursday) & 3 (Friday), Prague - God of the Trams

Going out through the last checkpoints to Czech Republic and Prague, my feet bleeding and shoulders sore, I felt pretty much like back from weeks of trekking in a jungle. Inès was there and I found her almost exactly as I left her, and this felt good. Not that she hadn't changed, not that I did not, at all and very visibly in my case, but there is still this distant cordiality, this reserve running on the deepest and stark entente on the open realms. Meeting again my oldest and solid friend showed up how sensibly it moved inside, I... [Lire la suite]

Days 1 (Wednesday) & 2 (Thursday), Tampere, Dublin - Boarding sequence 13

The complete dismantling of time perception torn away, days and nights reversed due to the sudden loosing of all schedules, two-direction time-lag and utter emotional oscillation, sickness and deepest exhaustion of all times, this utter chaos had a last consequence who could have been of the most dramatic if I hadn't been struck by a late epiphany while checking the departure time of my flight to Prague, after a moist and sultry afternoon vaguely threatened by thunderstorms - checking the said departure time in the evening, for the...

Just back...

... from the most exhausting journey. I feel completely absent and disorientated. Been spending the most of the night writing and this is a mere beginning. The whole will take several days. I don't know in which direction all that will go, there is too little time, too too little time...First I need a shower, and sleep, and finding what music to play for this journey.

Praha

So here we are. There would be much to write about strange and dizzy times, about this sultry afternoon ; yet Time itself irritatingly shrinks and flits further. Maybe if I bring my laptop to fill up all this time.  I'm rather stressed. I am going to disappear from this world until Tuesday, vanishing anonymously in the innards of a deserted terminal. Prague awaits. I'll be back on 23rd, via Dublin and a night in its airport again. My phone will be switched on my French number meanwhile, if any need to contact me (by... [Lire la suite]

Värttinä @ Pakkahuone, Tampere, April 12th

A week since all schedules crashed down and I'm collapsing too, barely able to stand up for more than a couple of hours so physically and emotionally drained I am these days. Not even this feeling to sleep avidly, to thrust oneself into the sheerest rest, only these monuments of exhaustion weighting on my shoulders and prompting me to dread a sudden faint, any place and anytime. My own nature of night owl is even deeply disturbed by the rushed dawns - I'm strangely yearning for those past times of darkness in which I step back for a... [Lire la suite]

Naevus @ Dog's Home, Tampere, April 5th

Naevus is all about love to me. The difficult intense infatuation I got into for Soil, its implacable drum-machine, new-wave feeling and remote voice, telling the most pregnant interrogations, and hard time just to get people hearing all that; the triangle of two people and a music which would understand us better than we even understand each other - the love between us. As I walked by the venue of their much awaited concert in Tampere (at least by me) in the afternoon, the soundcheck was already going on, and that was enough to... [Lire la suite]

Impressions

I intended to write that earlier, but I had to let the effervescence settle and to calm down. No music could equal and thus exhaust my energy. Simply everything have been going my way to my own pleasure and joy lately. I am not afraid to leave here. Everything is yet to be looking forward to. I feel like I've been g(r)o(w)ing up these last days. Maybe two days ago at night, I stood a few seconds on the balcony. All peaceful around, and from the newly unfrozen ground rose the scent of fresh grass. Peace is unarraying its masks and... [Lire la suite]
