Keeping time requires that the listener 

overcome the awareness of his own body 

in order to sync with the 

vibrations of the whole.


It is painful to fight the waves of music

that require absorption.

Begin with a skip

and a trot 

and a gallup

and a turn

and a spin.

Throw your shoulders back, 

catch the air with your lungs–
