  • Abisme by Shida Shahadi
  • Ellen’s Image from Lalo Schiffiren’s genius score to The Fox
  • Circulation by H. Takahasi
  • Liquid Spear Waltz from Michael Andrews’ score to Donnie Darko
  • A8 from a terrific record called NuNu by Clever Austin


  • I found a lot of insight in a terrific book called Extraordinary Beliefs by Peter Lamont. In it, there’s a smart historical, psychological exploration of why spiritualism was able to flourish despite all sorts of evidence opposing it.
