Songs From Liquid Days

The hum of the refrigerator is the name of this group of artists responsible for the above installation at Chamarande. Not quite sure about the meaning of the name of this group nor that of the installation but it reminded me of a Song From Liquid Days by Philip Glass. Particularly apt for a fountain I thought.

Changing Opinion – Philip Glass


CHANGING OPINION

Lyrics by Paul Simon,
Music by Philip Glass

Gradually
we became aware
of a hum in the room
an electrical hum in the room
It went mmmmmm

[…] Maybe it’s the hum
of a calm refrigerator
cooling on a big night
Maybe it’s the hum
of our parents’ voices
long ago in a soft light
mmmmmm
