It's turning into vibes week....what are the chances! Don't hate the player...pity him, he's having so much fun wrecking stuff he can't see the wood for the trees. #TreesOriginalProducersOfClarinetBassViolinDrumShellGuitarXylophoneBassoon
The album "Lenses Extend" asks us to examine our place in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. The Universe Next Door was inspired by the EE Cummings poem "pity this busy monster, manunkind", which was critical of technology and how it hampered human connection and expression. The final phrase, "there's a hell of a good universe next door, let's go", gives us a sense of optimism about the future, and how sometimes a positive worldview is a matter of perception.
