There’s a line in Tarkovsky’s Solaris: we never know when we’re going to die and because of that we are, at any given moment, immortal.

—Geoff Dyer, “Diary,” London Review of Books, 4/3/14


*It’s all related: Erik’s the son of photographer Lee Friedlander, whose work is often featured here.

Live, Germany (Frankfurt), 1999










musical thoughts

—David Byrne, How Music Works (2012)


*With Mark Feldman (violin), Guy Klucevsek (accordion), Greg Cohen (bass).
