about

This is an ambient track that I created, using full-length samples of stereo-mic'd crickets chirping out of my back window on a humid summer night. I kept it very simple, yet complex at the same time. It took lots of time to mix and master. I also incorporated the subtle use of binaural beats to help stimulate sleep and thoughtfulness. The meaning behind this song is that basically in silence our brains aren't constantly being barraged with outside stimuli and we have a chance for introspection, which a lot of people fear. It brings about the big questions of the future, your relationship with God, failures, regrets, responsibilities, shortcomings and so on. Unfortunately most people tend to blast their mind into digital fragments through the use of technology and media, like the television, iPods, cell phones, texting, Facebook, Twitter etc. My song ends with a challenge: take off your headphones, and don't start anything else until you have confronted yourself. At this point the song rolls off into crickets and a binaural beat fading to nothing.

lyrics

Silence
something
I lack
come back.

My mind
is in bits
digital
fragments.

i can't
stand the
sound of
thought.

Silence
something
I lack
come back.

Take off
your headphones
and listen to
your heart drone.

Don't start.
Please stop.
Until
you know yourself...
