Sing, Celebrate, Defy the Unlight (Snarky Puppy, with Shayna Steele)
I return to a perennial theme, one I have written about here and here: the raising of music by a group, to celebrate ourselves, so alone on this tiny vessel in the oceans of unlight. Spurred no doubt by the steepening slope of night here in the northern hemisphere (sliding as we are towards the solstice), I think communal song is our telos. Or certainly at the core of our purpose, if not the sum total.
Out of Nothing, Something... sing out the verse in us.
