I’m prouder of this piece of music than anything else I’ve created to date. I hope you can take the time in this slower paced version of our world, to listen and reflect.

When I released this track on youtube near the end of February, my main intent and hope for the music was that it would force the world to slow down a bit and take the time to reflect. This was the intention throughout the entire creative process in the weeks prior to release. Every meditation and every layer I added to the music was done so with this intent.

I suppose now, in hindsight, it is a bit of “be careful what you wish for”.

Now I’m not saying that I believe anyone heard this and the world events that followed had anything to do with the release of this piece but I am one that believes the universe follows our intentions and we all have the combined power to change this world. Where we place our focus is where we place our energy. The result is a collaborative process that evolves and moves everywhere within the cosmos and involves every single one of us. Every thought and every emotion is counted and quantified. Ripples.

Since its release on February 20th, it has been a time for mental and physical rebuilding for me and music has had very little part in that. I have finished a few other works that were in process but I have not started a new piece since the quarantine began.

Still, I wanted to take a minute and add this piece here on Bandcamp where it can be heard without the accompanying visuals that I created and presented on youtube. I hope you enjoy the journey.

Peace, love and light to you - John
