Nu world is a collection of sounds painting a picture for a new way of life. The soundtrack to a peaceful revolution. I made this music with the intention of meditating along to it. Depicting and manifesting a more connected world. The use of ambient sounds grounds and reminds the listener to be mindful. The cover art work are pictures taken by myself and are an attempt to capture the beauty already present around us.
In tracks Nuu, Anyway and Jungle I started with the idea of adding vocals and poetry to the music. During this time I’ve had to deal with difficulties in consistent technology, and outside pressures. The music reflects this as it asks questions of the listening world. The lyrics were born out of the more unknown feeling that I have had this last month. It still paints some hope, though it’s cautious. It remembers that the new world is as daunting as it is exciting. It is a project of duality, and a lone agent commandeering himself.
Nu world is a Sounds Like Chaos quarantine and 2020VISION commission, a new way of supporting young artists to rest, make and emerge from the global pandemic. Made possible by support from Arts Council England and the Albany.
