Saturday in the Gardens

This Saturday I made a pilgrimage to the Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham, NC. The purpose of this little adventure was some introspection, pursuit of innovations, and maybe a tan. It ended up being a marvelous journey through the senses and beyond. While much of it I can’t explain in the interwebs, what I can give you is a rundown of the music and visual experience I stumbled upon.

Around 3 in the afternoon, I spotted a group of shirtless dudes crowded around a hookah in the same grassy knoll that I had been occupying. I waltzed over, plopped myself down, and announced that I would be joining them. While hesitant at first, when I pulled the portable speaker out of my bag they declared that I was in.

Now the guy next to me, as I soon discovered, is my own personal musical jesus. I’m attatching his soundlou username at the bottom in case you want to do more exploring. But aside from his massive collection of all my favorite sounds, here is a selection of those tracks that stood out in my memory of the afternoon:
