Notes taken upon reading Henri Bergson’s book of essays The Creative Mind reveal an elaborate and complex series of metaphors. Over and over, Bergson attempted to represent concepts of duration by describing other phenomena such as fans, sugar dissolving in water, rivers, and cinematographic film. The soundtrack is marked by the simple act of striking a tuning fork and lettings its vibrations dissipate completely into the air.
