Mostly I find being creative very cathartic. It allows me to express and articulate more than just words. Sometimes I even find myself being surprised at what comes out. Music for me, is another level of expression, the combination and layers of tones gets closer to expressing real emotion. (it's so multifaceted just like music) We can never know what goes on inside another persons head or heart, but with music, IMO, when can get closer. I also find I can express my shadow side, in a more, well, safe way? I can vent and expel, without directing it at anyone in particular. There's also the vulnerability that comes with laying your emotions out for everyone to see and hopefully feel.

As for the audience, well, art being as subjective as it is, that's a tough one, people are going to read what ever they want from it. I can't control that, nor do I want. If they resonate with it and it helps someone feel something then great! I guess the other side of that, is you can put all sorts of subject matter into songs, that will hopefully make them think, or maybe look up a line or a word or a song title. It was this very thing that lead me to the forum! So I am hopeful that it may do the same for someone else.

So, to answer your question, my motivation in writing and releasing music is, firstly to help myself with being more expressive, with letting go of bottled up emotions, (not that all my songs or along these lines) as well as putting something positive, and, from my perspective true, into the world. By helping myself, hopefully it helps the audience too, to look at themselves and question these things I am saying.

I hope that all makes sense? it's a complex question hahaha

The lyrics in case anyone is interested

The Space Between


[spoken word]
There will be never be another you or another me or another us
Here now in this precious moment we are
Alive with childlike wonder with this gift with this rarest of bonds
Never before never again embrace this
Knowledge is the key faith is the path unity through service sharing this dream
Your love like a heroine drip coursing through my veins
Opening me to experience to new yet unfathomed bounty
Unafraid finally undaunted by being myself in my entirety
Free from shackles
Of burdens no longer serving
Robust and delicate a complexity of awe
Beautiful
Ever more the masks fade the walls come down and are smashed to dust
Inside and out the purest of truth
Nurturing like all great loves do
Generous
Yesterday is gone all that matters is what we do now
Ornate is the subtlety that binds the new thought
Unimpeded
If I am to be Odysseus
Let me never look back
Only forwards
Vehemently passionate about the now
Earnestly striving to see what is
You warrior woman cause contentment and wonder
Only this moment only this way
Undeniably full of choice and potential
Karmic predestined it’s what we do with our choices that matters
An infinite school with infinite possibilities and yet here we are living this experience
So grateful am I

I believe the heart inside your soul
I believe in hope and eyes that know
Finding, holding, climbing, I see you
Rising up inside me I feel love

[main vx]
Rolling fire and its holy light
Flowing higher let your soul ignite
We belong

[2nd vx harm]
I will fight for you

[spoken word]
Carving at the truth
Sacrifice the weak
I choose to see you
in the space between

A temple with the lights on
Showing me a new way
A symbol to ignite love
Smoldering in front of me
Assembled from the heart blood
Showing me a new way home
Resembling the night sun
Shoulder reaching out again

I know
I’m home

Ardent the bond stars in her song
Heart in heartily
Carving a sonde into the sun
Heart in heartily

A pair beholden
Repairing olden
Part of the way home
Rare and golden
Remember knowing
Lighting the way back home

[main vx]

Rolling fire and its holy light
Flowing higher let your soul ignite
We belong

[2nd vx harm]
I will fight for you


[spoken word]
Carving at the truth
Sacrifice the weak
I choose to see you
in the space between


A synesthetic bright spark
Flying free underway
A ripple in the right pond
Rolling seas are subjugate
Intrinsic learning by heart
Sowing seeds flowing vale
Asymptomatic dart faith
Opening to ride the wave

I know
I’m home

Ardent the bond stars in her song
Heart in heartily
Carving a sonde into the sun
Heart in heartily

A pair beholden
Repairing olden
Part of the way home
Rare and golden
Remember knowing
Lighting the way back home

[main vx]
Rolling fire and its holy light
Flowing higher let your soul ignite
Extoling spire leading two insight
A glowing choir as we harmonize
We belong

[2nd vx harm]
I will fight for you

[spoken word]
Carving at the truth
Sacrifice the weak
I choose to see you
in the space between

Still is the moment
Vibrant horizon
Christen the eyelet
Holy and silent

No idle mind we’re worth it all
We’ll work it out we’ll work it out
The love inside is worth it all
We’ll work it out we’ll work it out
The rarest kind we’re worth it all
We’ll work it out we’ll work it out we’ll work it out

I will fight for you ma chère
Show me you want me to
The animal, the scales indeed, it’s so perfect so imperfectly
I will fight for you ma chère

The original idea came from this quote, and the song is about my own response to a relationship that has taught me many things ;)

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. Viktor Frankl

Nice one, 987baz, you did get really creative with the video. I thought the symmetry was a great touch, like that very narrow space between of choice we have in life. The difference between being a machine and a man. Thanks for sharing :thup:
