Quote of the Month

When music occupies so much cultural space, you yearn for any noise that wasn’t meant to be music, that is fresh and complicated and free from intention (and therefore available for aesthetic invention).

Brian Eno

Dublin, November 2012

Another quick visit to Dublin. No time to look around, but plenty of dead time in airports. Fortunately I took Brian Eno’s A Year With Swollen Appendices to keep me company—his diary-with-essays from 1996—and consequently came home feeling much smarter. Coincidentally, there are a number of entries in the book about his own visits to Dublin, so keeping in the spirit of things here’s an ambient photo-essay on the airport:
