“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Stuck in a Joy Loop

Michael Tippett's Second Symphony, the presto. There is this thing that happens at 2:30. This recording is a little fast for me; I prefer Tippett's own version with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. But you'll see there are these three riffs that jam into one another in an amazing way.

It's a little known fact, however, that my dad started this band (Bournemouth) back some ago...
