Music — this thing that is as much part of our life as it shapes it. Whether we’re going through the perks of early mornings or in search of the perfect catalyst to get a party started, we all have a mental playlist for specific memories and moments. This month we’re asking Vivian aka Obsequies —making awful but beautiful tracks on Ableton before he deletes most of them on a daily basis— to take some time to reflect on moments in life and the music that completed them.
I think silence is more important than music, or maybe I just need music once in a while to enjoy the silence again
I sincerely hate this particular part of the day, so I like to be kindly numb myself with this song.
“[…]The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!” — From On the road, by Jack Kerouac.
A Rick Owens graceful drape will serve as my shroud, so please support my music to help me achieve my indecent dream. Thank you.
These raw feelings remind me than deepy in my heart, the seeds of self-destruction which come with the destruction of those I love can continue to grow if I don’t face them.
Obsequies plays MIND OVER MTTR, 15 December at Het Bos, Antwerp and The Sound Of The Belgian Underground, 28 January at AB, Brussels. Both events are free for members. Join here.
