The search for Self. The path to peace and Individuation. At the time of conception (many years before the song release), I didn't even understand what these concepts meant, but the lyrics and sentiment came as if a foreshadowing of what would become a life long journey. Written early in that journey, the tone may skew bleak, but from that was born a greater and more positive insight which I now better understand.
VIDEO AND ARTWORK STUDY
The lyrics to this song were written from a very dark place. A place of pain and helplessness, frustration and paralysis. A place arrived at by a transition through emotional and physical eruption brought on by being pushed past the previous limit of tolerance and perspective. From that place, a transformation to a new perspective was necessary. A release from the weight and pressure of brought on by limited view. And a permanent sign to remember the transformation forever, so that I would never return there again.
Everyone involved in this project has a great appreciation of visual art. From paint to pencil, video to experimental mediums, much like music, visual art has tremendous power in translating and communicating emotion and abstract thought. Form conjures explorations of the mind never before considered until suggested by colors on canvas. In such a way, music and visual art go hand in hand and do well to complement each other as they expore the full spectrum of artistic expanse.
