What would the world be like if there were no gravity? Actually we wouldn’t have a world at that point, how would it be if there were very little gravity or we had the ability to reverse gravity so that we could flow. Now there is something to ponder as I’m still dripping from an extra long run from this morning. After yesterday’s mountain bike ride where I decided to take the steep route to the top, I decided to push myself a little further with my run this morning.
Pushing, pushing, pushing. I probably added an additional 3/4 to 1 mile to my run this morning. At first it was no big deal but then about a 1/4 mile from home I was really starting to feel the fact I added the extra distance. It was a bit tough, but I made and now I feel like I’ve made the step to the next level, I’ll see if I can keep pushing at least 5 miles on each run. That’s a pretty fair distance.
I think running that far would be a hell of a lot easier if I was running lighter. Like if there was no gravity to weigh me down. Wouldn’t you think?
One thing that happens in running is you get to a point where it’s just running. That’s sorta zen like. Where you just are. The same can be said for music. I read a book a couple of years ago about the Zen of guitar playing. I think there is also a book about the Zen of music. While I’m not very well versed in what Zen truly is, I do know that lots of the concepts in the Zen of Guitar Playing was stuff I already did naturally. So I suppose that’s a good thing. Someone has given a name to something I already do.
I’ve never met Andrew, the guy behind Zircon. But he’s got a good head on his shoulders from what I can ascertain at the message boards where I met him. I say Zircon is a strange name for electronic music considering Zirconium is a mineral or natural substance. I suppose the idea is the bring an organic sense to the electronic medium in which he works. Either way, this song jumped out at me as having a great vibe.
It’s obvious that Andrew knows his way around his gear. Even with listening to his music on a laptop there is a lot of depth and space in his mixes. That’s tough stuff to achieve. I admire that from a non-signed artist and it certainly helps to set the bar higher for other artists who lack big budgets. I would like to see what he could achieve with doing some of his music set to video. That might be interesting.
