Making Tango

I’m interested in assembling a library of tango tastes, colours, residues. I was intrigued by the way Molloy was talking about the 'hum' in her head of fragments of tango words and melodies. I’d like to compile a lexicon, a dustpan of bits of rhythm, melodies, gestures and artifacts from tango. There is a sense in which Tango already revels in this degree of distillation and a language of suggestion.
