“Adrift” is the first single from the upcoming album “The absence of noise”. The title of the album is not about the absence of noises in my music, because noises are almost a foundation in my music. No, it is about how I use making music as an escape from all the “noises” in life. All the disturbances and heaps of things to deal with, attend to, or solve. All the obligations, commitments and constraints that cross my way constantly. When I make music, I am alone and away from all the “noises”, floating and adrift, no ties, no constraints. I am not controlled by anyone, or anything. It is a feeling, or maybe a sort of “ temporary mindset”, because I mostly have a clear purpose when I make music, and I know what I want to do. I am adrift, away from all the noises, but I am still in control. Of course, now and then I also just use it to clear my mind, to free up my mind, …. but subconsciously I am somehow still in control.
Throughout most of the track, the mood and atmosphere is relaxed, with a sense of nature and moments where it feels like the air is crystal clear. The track builds up a sense of balance, of being in balance or calm, but towards the end, also the feeling that this could change anytime. The threat of a change coming, or something not …… good. Like a storm slowly taking shape.
