A meditation on contemporary music.
Kairos starts of desperate with Nick Cave’s ‘Magneto’. This set the tone for a Kairos which gives food for thought. The music is by Woodkid, Margriet Ehlen, Lârus Sigurdsson, Lubomyr Melnyk, Morten Lauridsen and others. We end with Rain by Martin Stephenson.

 

‘Paulo minus ab Angelis’, is the name of the beautiful organ work by Margriet Ehlen.
Psalm 8:6. Translated roughly: “You made him [man] a little lower than the angels”. That’s a lot of responsibility resting on our shoulders. And then the graphic story of the 12 million immigrants who were allowed into the United States through Ellis Island in the late 19th and 20th century. Or were they? They left their homes in hopes of a better life, surviving the hardships of the journey and accepting the humiliating admission procedure. All to hear that liberating ‘Welcome!’. We would now call them economic refugees or fortune hunters to distinct them from the ‘real refugees’. And by the way, aren’t the ‘real refugees’ of 2016 not treated better than the immigrants of those days. How do we do it work as near-angels?

These thougths crossed my mind in compiling this Kairos, but I invite you to associate freely yourself. ( Wino Penris )
