This song was one of those improvised moments straight from the heart.

I was processing the hurt of watching someone I love having a really hard time, not knowing how to ease his suffering.
It was a cathartic conversation with the universe about the unfathomable existential pain that the human experience can be.

The rough recording moved me to create a synthesized landscape around that moment. It has so many meanings and applications in these times of change, loss, war, illness, confusion and the unknown for humanity.

It became a last minute addition to the album and inspired this animated video.


When Things Fall Apart - Lyrics

It hurts so bad
It hurts so bad
It hurts so bad

and all the things you love
Fall apart
And nothing’s left to hold you close
And everything just
Falls apart

Are we just floating
In an endless sky?
Are we just floating
In an endless sky?

Take my hand
While we cry
Take my hand
While we fly . . .

Bachan Mexico

The sound of Bachan Kaur’s voice can make you forget what you’re doing and remember who you are.

Mysticism infuses her sound with kaleidoscopic luminescence.
Sparse dreamy electronica, organic earthy acoustics, soul stirring poetics, and the occasional boom and clack.

Mother earth and the human heart are the bread and butter of this artist’s intention and you can taste it in every song.
