Sonder: the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.
Although we humans are advanced enough to understand that the world does not revolve around ourselves, we live on our own planets. Every day people pass through our lives without our acknowledgement. Once in a while, someone catches your eye and you suddenly find yourself wondering about them. Where are they going? Where have they come from? It is only when we stop and “ponder the sonder” that we recognize the extras in our show having backstories of their own. This week we bring you a playlist built to soundtrack the key characters of other spectacles. Alternating focus on lyrical stories and tinkering, listless instrumentation, the simple melodies and steady tempos shape to fit the background of the many stars you’ll never meet.
