Your attention is one of the endangered species of our time. Many are those who are desperate to catch it, if only for some seconds. Many are those who earn big money on hunting it down.
Is it any wonder then, that our mind sometimes feels frail and fragmented? That it yearns to be in a place where the attention is undivided?
Carnegie Hall is one of these places, and one of the best in the world. This little piece is made in gratitude for these sanctuaries, and it is made in gratitude for amazing musicians like Tine Thing Helseth, who devote their lives to make our attention blossom. In one holy, unzappable experience.
