Airport People is the collection of music, philosophy, and code by me, Leon. I compose neo-classical, minimalist, ambient music, think about things,1 and educate in data science at Metis.
I live in a little house in Fountain Square, Indianapolis, IN, with my partner Grace and our dog Lyra. Currently, I am working on my second full-length Airport People album.
Since the beginning of commercial flight, the international or domestic airport has been a meeting place for people from all over the world: family, friends, enemies, strangers, co-workers, and colleagues alike. I always found a sort of romanticism in the existence and interactions of people at these meeting places. When family members greet one another for the first time in ages, or when co-workers are escaping the office to travel to a new world, or when individuals are just waiting to get from point A to point B, we are all the same in this strange limbo existence. We’re all just waiting for our plane to come.
In particular, I’m interested in the gap between what we think we know and what we can never know. ↩︎
