April 6 Meditation (Steven Zavala, Aaron Garcia)

CW: suicide.

Steven Zavala’s friend killed himself on this day last year. Steven got the news in a phone call, at a bar with the sounds of a party in the background. In today’s Meditation, you hear those kinds of sounds, and see a fuzzy screen. A dial turns. Click, or press space bar, and a wedge slips over the dial – or doesn’t, if you get the timing wrong. If you keep up a rhythm, the fuzzy overlap fades away, and so does the party, and you hear a song by Steven’s friend Aaron Garcia: Trying to Get Back.
