Calm Pill 22

Every season has its special beauty and autumn is no exception. Watching the trees turn from a uniform green to all varieties of gold, yellow and red is a spectacular experience. One can almost be blinded by the fiery brilliance. How can it be that all this beauty is sign of death and decay? With all this beauty there is a certain sadness in knowing that the changing colors foreshadow the arrival of a long cold winter.

May the music of the heavens,
Dance around you in the air;
May each step that you are taking,
Be paved with great success;
And behind each door you open,
There be love and happiness.

May angels keep guard over you,
As you walk along lifes way;
And may your life be truly blessed,
As you start each brand new day.

How radiant. A lovely sight
Glowing in the bold sunlight.
Love, peacefulness and mirth—
Giving joy upon the earth.x

Sunflower. Unique you are.
Your beauty radiates afar—
Engaging the human race,
As always, with a happy face.

Lovely is the song you sing,
Its heartfelt melody to ring.
A song of beauty and of grace
Lends expression to the face.

Calm Pill 19 & 20

After some time in the works, I’m happy to share this latest installment in the Calm Pill series: a first of a kind double album that I created exclusively as a guest mix on AmbientMusicGuide.com.

It’s inspired by The Endless, a 2018 supernatural indie film that made an impression on me. The mix uses several tracks from the score and sprinkles key passages from the dialog throughout. My intention was to recreate the surreal feeling I had watching the film through a music. Fun fact: the mix runs for the exact same duration as the film.

Chill Pill 19

Make me forget, take me away.
Zone me in, let me stay

I’ll pay attention to you, and forget me
I need to not feel, please hide me.

The beats and lyrics
Pull me away from reality
Let me escape, help me to see

Hiding in my refuge of music
Drowning out all emotions
Finally forgetting myself
Not having to go through the motions.
