“I had a high pitched repetitive note on my brain for days, kind of like a monotonous chant on repeat in my head. Like a whistle or a wail, or your worst tinnitus episode. I figured the only way to get rid of it was to surround and clothe it, give it a context and an object. Not disguise it per say, but rather enhance and embellish it, combining this unnerving tone with others – both alike and opposite – consequently making it not just bearable but ultimately infatuating. And the question is would you have heard it if I wouldn’t have told you?”
