Earth Was;



Earth Was; is a concept album. The concept: in the future these songs are used to describe to space-travelers about what Earth was once like. Futuristic rhythms and complex layering throughout the album suggest a hindsight perspective of Earth, of nature, and mankind’s then-relationship to physics, chemistry, mathematics, and ordinary everyday life.


[01] Cloud Drop : The intro track is a tune, almost folklore-esque, of the moment life on earth ended.


[02] Welcome to Earth : this lofty hypnotizing track suggests what a visitor's first impression of planet Earth may have been like.


[03] Arrival : Upon Arrival, we often experience anticipation, fear, excitement, anxiety, repose. These emotions are often associated with negative events; here they simply shape our primary behavior and approach towards learning and experiencing something new.


[04] Primitive : Signifies early stages of life on earth. Biologic & artificial life; at each stage of evolution When little was known. When the earth was pure.


[05] Instinctual : As a species, we advance, we begin to flourish and eventually learn our limits, how to push them, and how we operate on instinct. An era of self-indulgence and self-reliance.


[06] Shipping Yard : Humans capitalize on repetition - machine life is born. The assembly line, mass production, logistics, and transportation fuse into integrated, interdependent processes.


[07] Auto Pilot : represents the eerie evolution of relinquishing control to automation, AI, and other forms of computational systems 


[08] Energy Game : is a representation of the search for self-sufficiency, perpetual, over-unity systems that will propel life, and indefinitely extend life, where ever it may occur, and whatever it may become.


[09] Exponential : The point of no return, sometimes referenced as the event horizon, the approach to signgularity is a confluence of all information represented in the purest and simplest form.


[10] Night Shift : An experience through the servers, the energy stations, the monitoring devices that govern our operating systems, our satellites, our cell towers. The song suggests a never-ending grotesque complexity of obscure patterns and procedures.


[11] Morning Coffee : A glimpse at the liquefied, quantum, entangled, rhythms AI produces to support our hologram interpretation of life & object-interaction while we enjoy our most uniformly performed morning gesture; drinking coffee.
