When flying to Costa Rica, with about 3 hours of sleep from the night before, I thought id spend most of the time sleeping. Instead, the idea to get out my iPad and try to come up with a song on garageband struck my mind as a good idea. This was the first time I had attempted to write a song on an iPad. Using the new medium was refreshing and allowed me to mess around with different melodies in a new way.
I came up with the main riff for the song almost by accident. Because, the keys were so close together, I pressed an extra note in the middle of the sequence. It sounded interesting so I developed it further and about a half hour later I had what I wanted. Besides using a different medium to write on, the excitement of being on the plane, looking down at the clouds and just getting out of a buddhist retreat created the right atmosphere for me to make a riff that I wouldn't have been able to do at home on my regular keyboard.
The lyrics for the song are inspired by my interest in darkness retreats. Extended time of being in complete darkness is something I have been experimenting with the past year or so, and had been wanting to express my passion about this type of mind altering experience. Coming up with lyrics on the spot in an instinctual intuitive way, leaving the specific message up for the listener's interpretation was the goal I had in mind.
When you have a meaningful dream, its usually not a straightforward answer, but a series of pictures and or words arising spontaneously that you have to piece together. Similarly, the lyrics of this song are supposed to be left up for interpretation. It has a message that could be interpreted differently by each listener depending on what those words mean to that individual.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
