An end-of-the-year release

I did not see that coming but there is a high probablity that there will be something new from this project still in 2015. One of the new songs is not that far from being completed, and I will maybe manage to finish two other ones, which means that if things go right there will be an 8th EP released in late December. Any occasion is great for uplifting sounds.

First official video

Although there are already two existing videos to „A Sholess Child” and „Continuum,” they both, however, were created using someone else’s output. The former remixed Stan Brakhage’s „Black Ice,” whereas the latter used experimental scenes from Henri Georges Clouzot’s unfinished film, „Inferno.” That’s why I consider the video to „Beyond Solitude” as the first proper one for this project, which presents all the imagery and its underlying message that my music tries to commit to. The video comprises almost solely material recorded in the forest in Mława, and only one clip recorded in Toruń. My creative soul is inextricably connected to my hometown’s forest areas.

Unresolvedness Is Completness Too

To make sense of reality, one seeks truths or more radically, the truth. I would argue that truth is not something definite, not necessarily a situation in which some resolved event is presented as something ultimate and binding. I mean, facts are facts, it can be determined which ones render truth in a more commonplace context. However, a kind of truth I am here mostly preoccupied with is the metaphysical one, that of an idealist, not that of a materialist.

Yet to narrow down this consideration I am arriving at a bit, I would like to refer to a specific situation of probing truth: a kind of truth where there are no agents distinctly delineated, nor are any cause-effect dichotomies. It appears wise and joy-inducing to perceive the self-containedness of a situation, the very subconscious impression it presses upon one’s senses as the very core of truth. The truth of a single event and its character is then dispersed and does not constitute a tangible and factual base, but this is perhaps even more unitive and universal than any stringent fact might ever be. It seems that the purport of this idea is that unresolvedness is truth as well; that the lack of any concrete data to interpret in one’s mind constitutes the truth itself; that the silence of helplessness and confusion might in fact bask in its self-containedness, which could be identified with truth if one wishes to use this term.

Fusion of dispersed and self-contained elements abiding in the unitive forces of reality.

Impressions received from a simple event where everything effortlessly manifests itself fill with joys, and silence and harmony of everything nourish the mind interminably.

Unresolvedness is a part of Continuity.

On Continuity, 8 October 2015

Brilliant continuity is all that there is to everything. Everything stays continuous, without ends, or with ends that at the moment of their alleged termination shift into another form and link with that which has ended, submerging into the ever-genuine stream of things. A potential distortion that might arise from acknowledging such a state of affairs stems from human systems created for classification and ordering of common things. But those are arbitrary and created so that to be helpful for us; yet, in the long run, those are inferior when looked at from that universal standpoint of continuity that merges and extends any matters that ever have occurred in this interminable reality, which marries constantly new areas of cognizant elements. Consistent working towards engraving this intimation into one’s system constitutes a great, noble, and gratifying activity that one could ever engage in, as it helps reach beyond fears of both living and mortality, and thus see everything as a continuous flow of things – a flow that has been occurring independently of the particular person, that permeated billions of living creatures with that common spirit of being. Everything is alive: earth, its noble inhabitants, being stones, trees, mountains, rivulets, animals, and space. It’s hard to admit such truths when we are caught in cycles of daily grind, but to reiterate: the gospel is that of continuity.

New Main Mirror

I have decided to create the main page where all the news regarding this project, alongside with my other projects, will be posted. Apart from music, I will also post some of my texts, videos, and photographs that relate to the themes I have focused on throughout the last years. I will also try to explain some of the ideas that I have incorporated into my music.
Be well.
