In praise of Niki Lambros’ editorial skills I would like to quote Gary Kamiya and his own praise of editors where he claims that: “The art of editing is running against the cultural tide. We are in an age of volume; editing is about refinement. It’s about getting deeper into a piece, its ideas, its structure, its language. It’s a handmade art, a craft. You don’t learn it overnight. Editing aims at making a piece more like a Stradivarius and less like a microchip. And as the media universe becomes larger and more filled with microchips, we need the violin makers.” It would seem to me that Niki is such a violin maker for she takes plain texts and makes them sing.
