In the writer Deborah Levy’s latest book non-fiction book ’The Cost of Living’ (try her novels ‘Swimming Home’ and ‘Hot Milk’ to start), she describes two moths landing on two photographs stuck to the refrigerator. One of them is of sculptor Barbara Hepworth, aged 60 and shaping wood. The other is 90 year old Louise Bourgeois holding an iron carving tool. I was drawn to the quote of Bourgeois’ that Levy pulls out; that she makes art because her emotions are bigger than herself. The section gives way to a beautiful meditation on the relationship between ideas and grief and finding beauty in uncertain times.
Music does something in uncertain times to make things better and these songs—while on no theme—have emotions, lyrics, ideas, visuals that will jump out.
