telescope - zoom Mp3
|3||we got it all|
It’s Fall, almost Winter, outside it rains cats and dogs. The cover of Zoom is staring at me from the table. With it’s shameless simplicity, it’s yellow, green and blue colours, it’s hidden dots, it’s flow and mathematic sheen..
it says: ‘ Evenin’ Sir! I agree... rather nasty outside, isn’t it, but soon it will be Spring again and...I can only say; Music is beautiful!’...
Pow! Hooked! Nowadays, in electronic music, one can easily lose oneself in all sorts of theoretical constructions and fundamental discussions.
Between dance-ism and abstractism of the new century, minimalism and maximalism delusions, retro hype and eighties bassline discussions, and the question wether grime, experimental hip-hop or 2-step is the hot shit again. There are only so many such questions that an experienced music lover, or a media led occasional listener can take. The one question that is just not asked enough: Why is music made or heard? Because it is beautiful!
On Zoom, a stream of suprises floats into our ears; hairy guitars, xylophone, trumpet, violins, accoustic guitars, digitals and analogs and of course various keyboard chords and sequencer beats leave us with the always wonderful feeling of not really getting it.
What makes it so addictive? That question would probably be the answer to our first one; Why do we make music again?
