Flaming Pins:

"For How Read Now begins with the sounds of two boiling eggs Savvas Metaxas prepared one sunny Sunday, followed by recordings of a trip to a park. From here our journey turns strange, with Metaxas overlaying this beginning using the sounds he could make from objects he found in his studio: small rocks, pencils, paint brushes and little metallic toys. horizon at all.

'The title is an error in print (errata) found in Zygmunt Bauman's book Modernity and its Ambivalence,' explains Metaxas. 'It's striking how such a small mistake can change the meaning of things and shape ideas, not necessarily in a bad way but in a way that gives a whole new direction and perception, making the mistake itself suddenly feel right.'

The inspiration for such an approach itself feels 'suddenly right' given Bauman's book is a call to reconcile ourselves to ambivalence and ambiguity, as a state intrinsic to contemporary life. Here Metaxas takes a more minor key approach to investigating these ideas firmly within the context of musique concrete where as he puts it: 'Small mistakes and alterations of an original idea, give new shape to sound and composition.'"
