Bone Clocks and Flowing Time

Book: The Bone Clocks

Author: David Mitchell

Music: From me flows what you call Time

Composer: Tōru Takemitsu

I first heard Tōru Takemitsu’s music in the early 1980s as part of the soundtrack album from the Carl Sagan series Cosmos with which I was obsessed at the time. Despite playing the cassette at the time until it was in tatters, it was 30 years later or more that I actually realized it was Takemitsu. It was his optimistic-sounding, melodic Inside The Heart Of The Universe. There was a lot of stuff on that album that I had no idea what I’d actually listened to until decades later – Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring was another.
