This mix is, among other things: another step on the path toward home, a stand against winter, the return of uptempo breakbeat, a warm rock in low-angle sun, a force that traverses a shade, a specially-made gift, some 80s fashion, that moment you fall asleep on the phone, an honest composition, and threaded with a deep undercurrent of hope that we find peace.
This mix is, among other things: a mark of the season, an ongoing fight for honesty, a need, a desire, a campfire, a peripheral vision, balance that isn’t a compromise, a thin blanket of snow, a tribute to Christopher Alexander, a dream seeking words, a roll across the shoulders, an acceptance of the unknown process, and a brush against the edges.
This mix is among other things, for every thing has other things among which it may be found or placed. Bounds built of language cannot enclose all. Diagonalization, then, is a survival strategy. Remember: the members of an infinite set are still themselves distinct. We are nothing if not discrete, yet nothing if we remain orthogonal. Diagonalization, then, is a reshaping for deeper understanding.
