Eyelid Movie #1

We all have our quieter moments filled with reflection and reveries.  After a pretty crucial weekend, and a complete life overhaul just around the corner, i have been left with a lot to think about.  Taken from Kate Bush’s last album, Nocturn is an expansively beautiful track, both nostalgic and contemplative.  Richly textured and filled with vivid imagery, the orchestral start gives way to a progressive beat that finally bursts aflame as the sun pours over a couple of night time swimmers floating in a sea of lucidity.  Although the narrative seems straightforward, the music belies this simplicity, as does her questioning of the conscious state.  The paths we take may seem as definite as footprints in the sand, but with a step out into the unknown, change is inevitable.
