Old Souls Part XII: Phosphenes‘ is mix of enveloping, mind-shifting, heart-filling, time-dissolving ambient, abstract, experimental and electro-acoustic music by brilliant Black artists creating work of incredible beauty and power.  Thank you for listening.

…But please don’t just listen. Every day, always, support Black artists. Buy music on platforms and from shops that are financially equitable, don’t just stream. It takes literally tens of thousands of streams on Spotify et al to add up to the same financial support as one CD, LP or download purchase–and those streams trickle in over years, instead of coming at once. If you’re only streaming your favorite artists–they’re not your favorites, and you’re not supporting them. Every day, always, support Black-lead organizations working to right the systemic injustice that informs centuries of history and all current governmental and corporate policy. Every day, always, act to support justice and equity for Black people everywhere. If you can’t safely get to protests and demonstrations during COVID-19, there’s still a lot you can do. And every day, always, don’t stand for bullshit on an individual level from white people you know: when you hear racist remarks, call them out; when you encounter well-intended but softly ignorant talk about “I don’t see color,” take it as a sign someone wants to learn but just haven’t yet that justice and equity are not the same as pretending life is a meritocracy and we’re all free so that’s good enough. If you’re not Black, when you act, make sure you’ve listened to Black people first, and have understood it’s not about you, and help how you’re told help is needed, and don’t try to take on leadership that isn’t yours. But rely on education that’s available: don’t burden Black people with your search for answers or your need to feel better. We cannot ever “get back to normal,” because normal was nowhere near good. Let’s never go back to that.
