Beautiful White-Hot Stones
This is the second track from the POTENTIALISM album.
‘Beautiful White Hot Stones’ is the very personal experience of sensory and emotive clarity, free from social awareness or cultural expectation and influence. When you sit within the elements on a warm day, with a gentle sun in your eyes, the wind in your ears, and connect with someone you love, nothing else in the world matters. This is the exploration of Potentialsim as a personal, emotional experience.
On the track, the main sounds of me and my partner were recorded on a beach on a Scottish island one summer, where all day we sat by the sea in our bathing clothes, with no-none around, the sun warming us deliciously, a fire lit to play with, cook on and stare into, the hot stones sizzling the water we threw onto it, our camper van giving us the sense of home and belonging, no work the day before, no work the day after, or the next, or the next…
If you’re lucky enough to share love in that context you know that nothing else can ever diminish that feeling. You keep it inside you, you carry it with you, it doesn’t diminish, and if you want, you can magnify it, keep it close to the front of your memory.
Apart from the musical additions I improvised later, the other sounds are from various world explorations we shared too, including a Parisienne street trumpeter, and most importantly, our beautiful cat purring with deep, ‘being fed’ purrs and milky lapping-ups.
Beautiful White Hot Stones is a glimpse into a pocket of perfection.
