I wrote my new song, “The Wall,” from my perspective as an observer in the virtual world. I notice myself and others just not as present in-person, overwhelmed by the critical state of the world and the constant information overload from our newsfeeds, ads and notifications. This track represents the restriction, loneliness, and disempowerment that I feel in being a part of the virtual world and also represents my fear of isolation and obsolescence in leaving it behind.
The song is from my upcoming self titled EP. I wrote, produced, performed and mixed all of these songs by myself, with the exception of “Communion” which was a virtual collaboration with Dollarstore Keyboard. In the past I had to rely on others to help me actualize my vision, but that didn’t always feel good, and I needed to know if I was capable of doing something of value, on my own. I feel like I have a deeper connection to these songs as I’ve been involved in their creation, every step of the way.
