Sound engineer Oz Fritz in the recording studio.
Oz Fritz posts part two of his blog article about Nabokov's Pale Fire. Oz shares my interest in coincidences and synchronicities:
Picking up Pale Fire, I was immediately reminded of the death of my father by the amusement park sounds mentioned on the first page. The death of my father had an incredibly strong impact on me. The reading of Pale Fire coincided with my body turning the exact age my father was when he died. This brought the memory of his death into sharper focus to the point where I felt it in my body. Like Nabokov, my father and I shared the same first and last names.
Nabakov valorizes coincidences in Pale Fire, I am valorizing them here. The value of coincidences is that they can communicate information and instruction to your evolving self. Synchronicities and coincidences can be considered a pale fire for your spiritual growth.
