I recently moved back home after 4 years away. This album is a concept album about a human who becomes abducted from earth, and finds a new home and light and beauty and heart in the place of his abductors, but is eventually returned home. I view this abduction as an act of charity with a willing recipient. The aliens from Sirius B are ahead of the humans in some ways (theoretically). They communicate through light language and are blue, ascended, in a fifth density. These aliens are based on aliens that many believe are actually in contact with Earth, benevolent interveners in society throughout time. In a certain way these aliens are fourth dimensional and have gained or have always had the ability to see time at its end. Or to see the objective determinism in hope and care and the value underneath social support or invention towards ultimately negative ends. The album chronicles Paul’s return to earth and how he reverts into his human self. The hurt and pain of emotion and youth and hope and path after it is deadened temporarily is dark and unformed. I hope that these songs can serve as a coping mechanism/ capsule of light while I lose my memory of Portland. The dementia of change. I hope it serves to bring solidarity to those who have left the place where they realized life was beautiful and have become human again.
This album was made fully in collaboration with my computer. The only person that left with me and the thing that ties me back to the lives of those I love.
