– When Magnus and Kia asked me to create a playlist and to write a short text around the theme of ”now”, I had to give it some serious thought… It felt like I was playing with fire.
I’m just realizing that no words can ever express the astonishing power of NOW better than a song can.
A whole universe in 3 little letters… An apparently simple word or idea, but so hard to experience in reality. NOW – perfectly poised between nowhere and everywhere – the only place on earth where we can really live – all else is illusion.
So, let’s not move any further away from NOW, and instead just listen to these 12 tracks which allow me to completely drown in the essence of NOW…
Words and playlist by Thomas Erber, consultant, writer, curator and the founder of ’Le Cabinet de Curiosites de Thomas Erber’. The 4th edition of ’Le Cabinet’ was held in the Maison Kitsuné Boutique and The Avant/Garde Diaries Project Space in New York in November 2013.
