"Philip B. Price understands the full potential of this kind of very basic and common song. I mean to say, he understands nothing. His life is lived in songs, his body has been exchanged for singing, and shared out in music. He has no easy way to subtract from us the pain of loss – all he can offer us is the fluidity a moment can be lifted into by singing – he can make us grateful here and now, as ee cummings put it 'still further, into now'. Philip is just as vexed as you are about how past moments only leave afterimages at best, and how vulnerable those afterimages are, and how inconceivably subtle the basis of our awareness really is – does it have any basis at all?"
