Label: Luaka Bop
Sam (Floating Points): Pharoah... Pharoah: Huh...? Sam: Were you asleep? I'm sorry... Pharoah: No no... I was listening... and dreaming... and listening to music in my head... Sam: Oh wow... sorry. Pharoah: Many times, people think I might be asleep... but in fact, I am just listening to music in my head. I'm always listening... to the sounds around me... and playing, in my mind... and sometimes I dream. Sam: What were you dreaming about? Pharoah: I'm on a ship. In the ocean. Bears coming around smoking cigars. The bears are singing, ‘We have the music. We have what you're looking for. * * * Pharoah: How you like that take, Sam? Sam: It's cool. I think the bit in the middle, where it stops again...I think you can hear...We were both kind of confused. I like it as well because it sounds like two musicians that are trying to guide each other. Pharoah: I think that's it right there. It came out different. It came out good though. Sam: You happy? Pharoah: Yeah, I'm cool with it. Sam: Okay. Yeah, I think your playing is beautiful.
