Greg Beato – pingaso

ds

 

Greg Beato, just shared his new track ‘pingaso’.

We liked the duality between the driven rhythmic drive and the mellow atmosphere created around it. It strangely reminded us of this poem by Adrienne Rich , An Atlas of the Difficult World, in which she defines  ‘nature’ as beautiful and terrifying in relation to its embedded human activities..

“Here is a map of our country:

here is the Sea of Indifference, glazed with salt

This is the haunted river flowing from brow to groin

we dare not taste its water

This is the desert where missiles are planted like corms…

There are the suburbs of acquiescence silence rising fume like from the streets

This is the capital of money and dolor whose spires

flare up through wire inversions whose bridges are crumbling

whose children are drifting blind alleys pent between coiled rolls of razor wire..”
