"Today You, Tomorrow Me". It was inspired by a stranger going out of his way to help me carry a wine fridge down the street after seeing me struggle... He said "today you, tomorrow me". Once I got home, I wrote this tune.
The aural landscape provided by "Today You, Tomorrow Me" is replete with atmospheric context. Emotive images of hope and optimism wend their way through the opener as if travelling down a coruscating mountain road, confronted by a dramatic landscape as the world around converges in a moment of epiphany. Awe-inspiring natural forces then provide a backdrop of mental imagery as rolling waves and white horses translate to musicals equivalents throughout the "7am Mix".
Sieg's mastery provokes contemplation as the jagged beats of "On Your Own" jut out of the aural landscape akin to rocks rising up through an ominous and brooding seascape. Juxtaposed against this are soft and mellifluous melodic patterns that rise and fall in flowing beauty around their beat driven counterparts with effortless ease; waves coalesce and dissipate around the rock edges occasionally crashing into their surface with dramatic impact.
Outwardly innocuous in its opening movement, the "Unique Repeat" remix stands apart. Images of significant portent are summoned as a dramatic bass line matches a foreboding skyline before a crystalline lead line lacerates the audioscape, piercing a barren landscape with driving rain while simultaneously providing a sense of cleansing hope and vibrancy.
Light transforms dark; hope meets expectation.
