A unique departure from predictable melancholia, this music explores a story about the loss of connection to the heart, soul, people, and the earth. With bombardment from media and through addiction to the Internet and mobile devices we are experiencing soul-loss, and disconnect from our natural environment. We are forgetting about compassion, real people, and what really matters most - Love.
These melancholy messages are brought to you through many instruments, and through the fine work of several individuals. Softly, suggestively, surprisingly, loudly, gently, curiously you will go on this journey.
It is my hope that this dark music will also inspire hope, peace, gentleness, and a desire to re-connect. So it is not a true melancholy, just an aberration.
