'Broken Peace' video release [Arcadian Resonance]

Broken Peace features on Playfio's latest album
Stirring strings to open this song with melancholy vocals to boot.  I guess this is all about not taking life too seriously and  appreciating what we've got.

We're not going to be here for ever and (although hard at times) should try and savour precious moments with the ones we love, as they'll not be around for long.

Forget, if just for a minute, about your worries and forget about it all.

Few verses in:

The smell of dry dust loosens,
A memory of yester year

Every so often I'll come across a certain smell that will take me straight back to a memory of my childhood. This one the lyrics touch is the smell of dry dust after a really hot day, not too dissimilar to that  aroma you get just after it starts raining after a dry spell. On the rare occasion this happens, it's like an old synapse connection in my brain is suddenly switched on and the connected memories of that grey matter become clearer.

Another masterpiece of visual art, I'm honoured to be able to put my music to, this time by Israel Garcia. This short film perfectly describes the loss we all feel sometimes and is aptly titled 'Memories'.
