I wondered earlier in the year if the absence of some of the last hurrahs at the end of summer such as carnival, might make for a change of season seeming more gentle. Despite that lack of punctuation being the case, and a recent teasing weekend of blistering unseasonal heat; it feels we have very much arrived in Autumn – albeit a very different one than usual.
The anticipation of approaching cosy sheltered social activities that usually accompany the shortening of the days has been replaced by a now too familiar uncertainty of encroaching solitude. Football is back, but behind closed doors – and the clubbing season that usually coincides with its return has not found a way to operate without audiences.
The season also usually brings about lots of new music; this year has been no exception. In fact it seems in more abundance than ever.
Perhaps I am making connections that are not there, or being a fantasist, but I feel that consciously or unconsciously the art has responded collective uncertainty and instability.
I often think music provides us a slow communication; both in creation and listening it allows us to express things too intangible or too animal for our words – the things we are yet to be able to express, or those we perhaps forgot how to. Radio provides us a way to do this collectively when we are remote in time or place. In days where we more are likely to be going through a few things, and will not be able to gather; this space to seems essential.
