about

For some unknown reason, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy shoots out an X-ray flare about once a day. These flares last a few hours with the brightness ranging from a few times to nearly one hundred times that of the black hole’s regular output. But back in February 2012, astronomers using the Chandra X-Ray Observatory detected the brightest flare ever observed from the central black hole, also known as Sagittarius A*. The flare, recorded 26,000 light years away, was 150 times brighter than the black hole’s normal luminosity. What causes these outbursts? Scientists aren’t sure. But Sagittarius A* doesn’t seem to be slowing down, even though as black holes age they should show a decrease in activity...

On ”The Long Journey” Chris Sigdell focuses on dark drones combined with ”meant-to-be” sound mishaps, making up a drowsy quagmire to a mixture of avantgarde experimental darkness.

Don’t listen properly, behave inaccurate. Don’t be obnoxious, be quiet and feel the concrete.
