A Wednesday evening in March. Cenk is heading East, and he and Sudhu and I grab a last opportunity to record a session together before he leaves. One of those sessions that sits forgotten in the vault, like so many. Years pass. Many changes for all three of us, we are not who we were. And then, ten years later, the virus. Cenk, locked down in Berlin, turns his mind to labors lost, and transforms our moments into monuments. Fred, in Basel, and Sudhu, in Berkeley, are speechless. And delighted! A day that marked a fleeting moment of transition finally reveals itself, thanks to Cenk’s meticulous ear for detail, raw and in the present.
