Hello Ryan :)
I am curious to know what your inspiration was for Overture. It is the one song on the new EP that really speaks to me.
I've been a fan of your music for quite a while and it am so glad it is part of the soundtrack of my life. thank you :)
firstly, thanks so much! that means a lot to hear that you like that one. when i started this "atlas" concept, i knew right off the bat that i wanted to have 1 song that could kind of sum up the concept of the project. the preface. so the heart of this song is definitely in the lyric "the universe began with our eyes closed" which to me means, that there is so much mystery involved in the beginning of all things that matter. it also points out our lack of knowledge in subjects so huge.
one fun side note... i incorporated a hint of each of this year's ep themes in the lyrics to "overture".... obviously "darkness" is mentioned, and so is "light" (the next ep) and the remaining 4 eps are referenced in there too. :)
