The Meaning of Life

I got 2 hours of sleep last night, and 4-5 hours of sleep the night before. I'm sure you can hear why...

To me, any view of our existence that deviates from the simple truth of what our life really means is a distraction. It clouds our minds and prevents us from enjoying life as it comes to us. So many people are asking about what it all means, but truthfully... the meaning doesn't matter. That's the wrong question to ask. Instead, I search for beauty and happiness and enjoy it while it lasts, because theorizing about why I'm here or focusing on preparing myself for some kind of phantom life after this one will keep me from what we all have the right to experience right here, right now.

This song is meant to be a display. A sort of performance. A wake up call, where the music itself describes the emotions of somebody (in Kadamitas, Namara) who's trying to show people that they already have what they're really looking for. And though this creates strife within Namara, in the end he realizes that there's only so much he can do.

-Tools: Ableton Live, Composer Cloud, Massive, QL Spaces
-Some sounds were recorded myself (eg. I added breaths to the duduk to make it sound a little bit more real).
-This took me about 20 hours in total.
-This will be in the NGUAC (2017) for the knockout round.

I hope you guys enjoy the music! The song will be available on this album: https://masochmusic.bandcamp.com/album/kadamitas
