Album Description

Released:November 20th, 2010
Length:00:31:01

keeping the time, five years, an artichoke a year:

“a fame had a wall clock, and each week he wound it VERY VERY CAREFULLY. A cronopio passed and noting this, he began to      laugh, and went home and invented an artichoke clock, or rather a wild-artichoke clock, for it can and ought to be called both ways.
This cronopio’s wild-artichoke clock is a good artichoke of the larger species, fastened by its stem to a hole in the wall. Its  innumerable leaves indicate what hour it is, all the hours in fact, in such a way that the cronopio has only to pluck a leaf to know  what time it is. So he continues plucking them from left to right, always the leaf corresponds to that particular hour, and every day  the cronopio begins pulling off a new layer of leaves. When he reaches the center, time cannot be measured, and in the infinite  violet-rose of the artichoke heart the cronopio finds great contentment. Then he eats it with oil, vinegar, and salt and puts another  clock in the hole.”

Julio Cortázar
