Timelessness

this topic was raised in the thread ‘did music stop innovating’
maybe an interesting topic to talk further about in this thread

it reminded me of the what the anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss said about myths and music: Music and myth have a different relationship to time (than language); through their structure they escape from time. Both are machines in order to eliminate time. (my translation from dutch, “Claude Levi-Strauss - tussen mythe en muziek”, Ton Lemaire)

and this topic also evoked associations with this:

Eleh - Measuring the Immeasurable

and this

Kraftwerk - Europe Endless

and…

La Dusseldorf “Time”
