These days are strange to me. They often blur - one into the other - in a fog of anxieties and unknowns. As I often do, when faced with such uncertainty and unfamiliarity, I've turned to music. Music - both the listening to and making of - has always been an integral part of my existence. My existence is changing - seemingly - on a daily basis. I've been playing these songs in my head for the past several months and just waiting for the right time to bring them out.
Distance Between is an album of dark - and sometimes not so dark - reflective and introspective instrumentals... An electronic, dissonant gothic soundtrack for a life that's just a bit off.
It's been cathartic, revelatory and healing to put these songs together. I hope they will be for you too.
