Everybody knows the experience of a moment of clarity, when the daily speed of life and its rumor seems to slow down. In what sometimes actually may be a split second, things, events, people and their reflections interconnect in a way that makes you perceive the world as elevated and understandable. It is in these moments people make decisions in an unhurried manner, feel inspired and maybe even create art.
In the music of Jim Fulkerson, this experiencing of time is one of the main focuses. Sounds, which are calmly and slowly moving in time, offer the listener a chance to hear its details in full color. It is this state of perceiving sound which allows us to enter a space of creative thinking and reflecting that enriches our lives.
Listening to details and its peaceful existence in time makes us conscious of sound, makes us conscious of beauty that is not unusual and is one of the reasons for us to live.
