Edition of 100.

" Almost three years ago I released an album called ‘Things Are Being Held Together’. This album was born out of a time of frustration and concern for all that was happening in the world at that time. All the pieces were recorded live, the result of multiple improvised sound collages, created over many nights, hunched over tapes and pedals. My intention was that it would be a prayer or meditation for such a time, which I paired with scriptures that resonated with me and the music. For me, songs are monuments - things that I make to mark a moment and remind me of a truth. I hoped that they would mark this time and provide such a service for myself and others.

When I began writing this new album, I realised I was not done with the central passage of ‘Things Are Being Held Together’: “He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Col 1:17). In a similar manner to that album, I began again to amass tape loops and melodies to mix together during live improvised sessions. Some of the pieces here were written on their first take (‘Birth Pangs’), others took dozens of attempts and revisions (‘Things Remain Held Together’ and ‘Ζωή’).

Thematically, the main crux of this album became more and more apropos with every event during its writing: I became a father. Australia was hit by one of the worst bushfire seasons in history, exacerbated by climate change. A global pandemic gripped our world. Racism raised its ugly head again in many countries. Nations continued to become more insular and fearful of each other. And the broken systems of our world continue to cause the very thing they were designed to fix.

Twenty-Twenty has proved to be the least ‘held together’ year of my life. And yet, although systems and powers may be falling apart, He would have us trust that we are living through the birth pangs of a new world breaking in - the sparks that fly as two opposing kingdoms grate against each other (Matt 24:3-8).

Things were held together, and things remain held together."
