Hi AJ friends,
You might have heard about the disgusting terrorist attack that happened in my country of New Zealand. I know that atrocities happen all the time around the world, but the impact this particular attack has had on us considering our size, culture and national identity is massive. Our country and people will never be the same again - I would go as far to say that our country is heartbroken.
I know music is important to everyone here - beyond the functional type that we create for this marketplace is a seed of something special. Something that moves us, inspires us, challenges us, and in times, comforts us. I sat down at my keyboard trying to process the day’s events and wrote this piece to comfort myself and others around me, desperate to say something of meaning in a time where a lot of important things seem trivial at best.
I wanted to share this piece with you all (it’s not perfect probably and wouldn’t pass the review haha) to encourage you all. The gift of music that you carry has the ability to do more than just sell products or back videos. In times like these, our art can be a bridge to a greater understanding of our world.
God bless you all!
