Headphone jack

October 24, 2012

The 3.5mm to 1/4″ adapter opens up an evening of sounds. Now I can plug in, heaphones clamped around my head, a direct channel to the vibrations of the spinning disc.

The record in question, Crowded by Kevin Drumm, is a quiet maelstrom of tones, seemingly ever-descending like an Escher staircase. It is an elegant hall of mirrors to get lost in. The symphony of noises that Drumm arranges has a lot of love in it, with balance, poise and depth, and every sound breathing. It is more powerful, elegant and towering than the spaces of everyday life.
