This week I've been to York, Amsterdam, and am now in Paris. I recorded the pod from a bench in the middle of this beautiful cemetery near my friend's house. There were mosquitoes, and groundsmen kept wandering past me while I recorded. Also an old couple with a pram. Incredibly distracting! And a shame because I have a lot of very serious and important things to say about art, music and the human condition. These horrid little bugs have robbed us of my wonderful insights.
