CLOSING STATEMENTS

Kaada_Closing_Statements_cover_400

Fifty minutes of new music composed and recorded over twelve month period.It’s been one of the most enjoyable records to make in my life, if not the most fun ever. Or at least the happiest I’ve ever been making a record.  This might seem a bit contradictory, since the theme of the album circles around obituaries and last words before death.

The titles are quotes and fragments from different farewell utterances.  Things that people (apparently) said when they were about to die.  There is a mysterious aim over the final words of the dying. What does these last words reveal about life, death and consciousness? These words give a glimpse into the individual’s overall feelings and experiences.
