my friend Fraser asked me a few months ago to contribute a track for his spoken word compilation. i thought about it for a long time and was a bit afraid to approach this task - i generally feel very uncomfortable having to listen to my voice and disguising its faults is not an easy thing when you have to talk. also, the subject - what can i really talk about for few minutes? in the end i decided to use a bit of text i wrote on the plane from belgium a year before. for a background i made some low quality recordings during my next trip to brussels: all kinds of plane sounds, people talking on buses, planes, in parks and cafes.
