Entropy

Entropy is an elusive, abstract, scientific term. To put it simply, it states the fact that disorder will increase in the whole universe.

Entropy is the reason why we perceive time. The world is developing in one direction and will never reach a previous state. Life spans from birth to death, the universe expands from "Big Bang" to "Big Chill", ending cold, empty and lifeless.


The City's Dream

The novel "Perdido Street Station" by China Miéville inspired me to write this song. I tried to transfer the mood and vibrancy of the fictitious city "New Crobuzon" to a contemporary megacity. A lot of the figures of speech I used in the lyrics originate form Miéville's pen.


The Rite of Winter

Not a winter blues but some serious thoughts about.. Well listen to the lyrics.

Two Doors

Scenes from the mind of a person who suffers from bipolar disorder. Two mental doors lead to the landscapes of fancy and mood: "Ecstasy", the land of joy and the "Shattered Plains", the land of grief.


W.A.T.E.R.

W.A.T.E.R. is a symphonic rock tune. Obviously, the element water is its theme. The video shows a lot of impressive nature footage.
