Like a SETI Transmission But Not One of Ours

Only posting this on the long shot that I am not the last one to hear about the Langley Schools Music Project. I can't find words for this music except that it appears from the edges (canada) and the past (1977) and that it kind of hovers there even as you hold it in your hand. In your head.

The sixty voice chorus of children, working really hard to get it, to bring David Bowie from the inside out, the Beach Boys, the Eagles. And you can recognize them, the tunes, they are in there, like the image in a Ted Serios photograph, undeniably accurate and yet blurred out and burnt up. Or to be clear: accurate precisely for those same reasons.

Yes, I thought I might be. But still. Now I'll remember it.

Actually I hate to say it, but you already knew about this once and forgot it.

Right, that's why I'm always the last to know, Because it's always new. But it's always an interesting world, like that.

Seems like we're heading back to the memory/hard drive thread...

Or Memento.
