When Mark Stent asked me if I’d like to work on a track with him and Kharmatronix, I jumped at the opportunity. I was excited to test my song writing abilities with something very different to my style of music.
I heard the track and the first thing I felt was the movement in it. There was a story dying to be pulled out!
Since it was a dance track, the track could get played at clubs, festivals, etc. I thought “can you imagine everyone dancing to a track that I was a part of making?” and that’s how it sparked – an image!
Imagine this for me .. you know when you have a sparkler and take a pic? You can write your name, letters, shapes with movement and the sparkler. I love this concept - that there is movement in a still photo. So I brought that concept across to the song!
I wanted to create a story that would give movement and a tangible feeling to something you can’t see yet can feel.
There are two things that go hand in hand – one we are aware of, the other we’re not.
Music is always around us and we respond to it differently depending on where we are and who we are with. And we move and use our bodies differently to different music and situations. So for example at a festival with friends, you dance and laugh. You are completely aware that you’re giving into the music and allow it to take over your body and emotions. But what you don’t realise it that you are also creating a visual to something that can’t be seen. You are making a ‘feeling’ something tangible and visual. You are painting the noise with your movement.
I see music as butter – not really meant to be used by itself. Music can’t be used by itself because that would be impossible! It’s always accompanied by something like a feeling or emotion. And it’s up to you on how you use that music and paint the story you want to tell.
So my inspiration to writing PAINT THE NOISE was .
Live your own authentic life, write your own story, and paint your own world.
