GoGo Penguin: Live from the Abbey Road Studios
Music
In October 2020, GoGo Penguin streamed a live video session from Abbey Road Studios. It was a delight to listen to and watch. Each note tickled the capillaries in my brain, made me feel like I was in the studio with them and let me forget I was staring at the computer screen at home. The recording of the event is also available on Spotify. Enjoy!

The Comet is Coming: Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery
Music
I tend to be a bit abstract when relating music to emotions, which can lead to interesting conversations under the right circumstances. A friend and I talked about music once, using only colours, another time naming scents. I think it was more fun and insightful to relate one sense to another.

Listening to this album feels like a 45-minute existential voyage between an end and a new beginning. A transitional stage. An open-hearted invitation to a world that is surreal and real at the same time.

Tales of the City
Drama Series
Created by Armistead Maupin, Tales of the City was first published on a column in an alternative weekly San Francisco paper in 1974 before becoming a series of nine books -published between 1976 and 2014- and adapted to TV in 1993. But I discovered it when the Netflix production streamed in 2019.

Tales of the City tells the story of people living in an apartment complex on 28 Barbary Lane. Surrounded by a beautiful garden, the residence is an oasis where everyone is loved and accepted as who they are - all made possible by the landlady, Anna Madrigal. When a middle-aged resident, Michael, states his reason for not leaving Barbary Lane, his words depict an ideal home:

"Once you feel seen by someone like Anna Madrigal makes you feel seen, you don't wanna leave."
