Jorden elskede luften (The Earth loved the air) - Ketil Bjornstad from Sunrise (2014).

I think I love this because it sounds both like nothing I’ve heard before and everything I’ve heard before all together at the same time.


When you surrender, the problem ceases to exist. Try to solve it,or conquer it, and you only set up more resistance. I am very certain now that, as I said therein, if I truly become what I wish to be, the burden will fall away. The most difficult thing to admit, and to realize with one’s whole being, is that you alone control nothing.

—Henry Miller, A Literate Passion: Letters of Anais Nin & Henry Miller, 1932-1953. Mariner Books,1989

Allow me, for just a moment, to indulge my Pacific Rim obsession.

The wonderful thing about this song is the mood it evokes. It borders on hopeful, with the crisp, clear vocals courtesy of Priscilla Ahn striking a tone of wistfulness. The underlying strings section never quite hits the major chord your ear is yearning for, though, retaining a subtle line of foreboding throughout. It’s a song that bears repeated listening, because you’ll discover a different nuance to it each time.
