beauty and the street
desert island discs
some years ago, in the book black
holes, baby universes, and other essays, stephen hawking got me
interested in the BBC program desert
Desert Island Discs is one of Radio 4's most popular and enduring
programmes. Created by Roy Plomley in 1942, the format is simple: each week
a guest is invited by Sue Lawley to choose the eight records they would
take with them to a desert island.
you also get to chose a book and a luxury.
because i fully expect to not ever appear on the show, here's my list
of desert island discs:
book: nabokov's "lolita", translated into english.
goreki's symphony number 3, the symphony of sorrowful songs. a moving,
deeply felt piece i think sweeps the range of human emotion.
deum, by arvo part. beautiful, inspiring music well performed.
"It's what God listens to on his iPod" is how one person accurately described
it. hoy minimalism ...
- the buena
vista social club, a charming, warm collection of music.
- kind of
blue by mile davis, probably some of his best work in my opinion. his
own sound, great talent, the birth of a great period in music history.
at future primative sound sessions, cut chemist and short kut to fulfil
my turntablism needs.
segovia and his spanish guitar.
specials, some of the best two tone ska sound.
- the cure's
staring at the sea, some of their best singles.
luxury: a picture of beth.
