Creating nine performance skirts made from hundred of knots, requires the best possible music to ease the laborious journey. It also required hands, time and lots of cups of coffee over a consecutive time of three days and three nights. This is when you know where your deepest relational values are, and why they are there. Ready to assist, in those times of need. Someone recently referred to this as 'relational resources'. I would rather call this friendship and love.


"The day with its cares and perplexities is ended and the night is now upon us

The night should be a time of peace and tranquility

a time to relax and be calm

We have need of a soothing story

to banish the disturbing thoughts of the day,

to set at rest our troubled minds,

and put at ease our ruffled spirits

And what sort of story shall we hear? Ah, it will be a familiar story

a story that is so very, very old, and yet it is so new

It is the old, old story of love"


Listening to 'Einstein On the Beach: Knee Play 5' by one of my favourite composers The Philip Glass Ensemble, I suspect I synched my subconscious-self to the counting performance by Michael Riesman in this composition. It somehow soothed me when I became anxious about whether we would finish them on time, or whether we would have enough spindled cotton, and if we didn't, whether we would be able to order more at the last minute, or whether the courier company would drive through the night ... etc, etc, etc.

On 1 June 2023, we were ready.

And the Sound and Soil project took off!
