This is the first dedicated piece I worked on for Current EVENTS. I was in my third story studio, it was late and it was snowing outside. It looked like a black and white movie on the street and across the rooftops and the hills looked like ghosts. It was early January and winter was feeling like a tomb. The primaries were heating up and there was a sense of dread. The trees had that look of stubborn but worn bones and fingers. While driving around the neighborhood listening to mixes of this one I noticed that everyone I saw suddenly looked like they were up to something. I love when music changes the feel of what you're observing.
