About Perpetual Noon:
I find noon to be the most precarious time of day. It is the time I pause my to-do list, often wishing more were crossed off, often wishing it more full. I then wish I could freeze noon and make it fully still. The music of Perpetual Noon reflects my imagined noon: still, extended, lingering.
