Today I've been mixing 6 different songs; trying to give each one of them its own style and at the same time I was trying to balance their tones and sounds so they would work together under the same title, my new EP.
Basically, I spent a lot of time making them different but the same.
These songs have been recorded over time, instrument after instrument, and in the process, I was learning how to record and mix.
Trying to find a sonic balance that would make them feel organically linked to one another, made me think about my balance.
About all of those parts of me live under the “self”. I once wrote, “We are multitudes of solitudes”. I wonder how far am I from my balance and how can I get closer to it or how can I manifest it all at once and if a balance is possible at all.
I find that the same amount of energy and love I put out in the world needs to be met with the same amount going within, towards me. To make me feel good, to feel I’m loving a just life.
Taking care of myself means I’m also better placed to take care of the ones I love.
