The Airport Exercise

An hypnotic musical “sketch” by crafty guitarist Steve Ball that incorporates elements of ambient synth-pop abstracts from Robert Fripp and Tony Levin, amongst others.

The vocal track comes from the eccentric British philosopher J.G. Bennett. The ending where it’s said (not in his own voice, I don’t believe) that “it is possible to suffer without achieving the aim” seems to be a perverse twist on his more familiar axiom: “it is impossible to achieve the aim without suffering.”
