Most of these tracks were made shortly after releasing 'Messages' on Syngate Records in Germany. Sometimes tracks just happen and flow even though I am only experimenting with sounds and ideas without the intention of making a complete album or any music at all. In the past I used to discard all material, some pro's may think for the better, but now I just run with ideas and see what happens and a full album might emerge. This album was inspired by a quote by Buddhist Pema Chodron who says we all are addicted to something and it is part of our human nature in that we all can be restless or discontent and many find it impossible to just sit and be calm. In the book, When Society Becomes an Addict, Anne Wilson Schaef says that life in the U.S. is so stressful that it is impossible not to become addicted to something and we live in a society that not only encourages addiction, but almost demands it. Some addictions, such as workaholism, are encouraged and applauded while others are tolerated.
Whether you are addicted to collecting music, movies, synths, guitars, beer mats, facebook, computer games, your mobile phone or to something more illicit; it is still an addiction and just maybe it is part of our human nature.
