Art decorate space. Music decorate time. ~ TBAP


The idea came from watching Sense8, I was amazed at its concept of cultures intertwining. Sense8 is probably the most intersectional work of art in cinema history. The idea of intersectionality forming culture. But I am going to explain, why I chose music as a bridging point of cultures.


Languages have barrier. Arts have difference. Music have none of those. Music transcend not just differences, barriers, borders, but time.


Did you know that ancient Greek, Chinese, Celtic, Peruvian, First Nations and Aboriginal music share the striking similarity in their structures, tones and scales? Yes they are all on Dorian scale with slightly different variations. How did these cultures develop independently, some even isolated from each other could intertwine so much similarity?

How do First Nation and Aboriginal didgeridoos, the world oldest instruments share similar construction, where these two ancient cultures share them? One culture is 16000 years old and one is 40000 years old. Both developed isolated.

Did you know that the kamanche gave birth to the symbols of Western instrument, fiddle, and Eastern instrument, erhu?


Music don't just bridge the cultures, it also bridge the time and space of humanity. A marvel of universal culture.

And these are why it disgusts me the most when modern culture tried to co-opt and brand this universal creation as "intellectual properties", nothing merely more than just meaningless thing called private property. And it's disgusting, undermining all the rich layers of culture development of humanity.

To those who support intellectual property, you are ignorant to the existence and knowledge of music. It never intended to be chained in the useless constructs and abstracts of selfishness.


Back to the composition of this track. Celtic LOTR style music + alternative pop. The pop beats were inspired by Michael Jackson's Beat it and Thriller. May the King of Pop rests in peace.

This track gives the humble respect to the development of pop by African-American musicians, and the passive mutuality to blending Celtic music with modernism.


Enjoy. And stay intersectional!
