Taavi Hallimäe: What does Pia Fraus dream about?

A dream is a complex and well-oiled machine that contains all possible, generally unconscious experiences, desires, expectations and traumas of the subject. If the latter seem to be quite certain and understandable while still awake, then after falling asleep they will be broken into a vague blur which a dream brings together again, but more compactly than before, differently. Freud would say that the condensation and displacement take place. The first one, condensation, means that the dream always contains much more than we could expect from a retelling of the dream; the second one, displacement, suggests, however, that the dream is only indirectly related to what is seen....

Heather Stebbins “Maarja Nuut: Beautiful Simplicity”

On Wednesday, 22 April, fiddler, vocalist, and recent winner of the Tallinn Music Week Wire Prize Marja Nuut performed at the Tallinn Art Space. The space is a small yet bright and welcoming venue with vibrant artwork hanging on the walls. Nuut’s violin hung on a stand at the front of the space as concert-goers began to take their seats. Nuut took the stage, equipped with a second instrument, a more folk-style violin. Her opening song began with only her voice singing a simple melody.
