Right at rock bottom, I had to take an extended period of time off from pretty much everything. My parents took me in like a lost dog. They have this really cool old house in a semi rural area that we call the “treehouse”. It literally has massive trees that support the structure of the house. Anyways they have a guest house/cottage that they gave me full reign of until I had recovered.
For the first few weeks all I did was eat, sleep, shit and go for bushwalks.
I was a bloody zombie!
One day I found an old keyboard of mine in the attic where had some stuff stored. I plugged it into my laptop and it still worked Boom! I loaded up my favourite ambient sound. This is a soft ambient sound that you will hear in the background of almost every song I have ever written. Anyways for the next few days I just lay in bed with my headphones on and this sound drowned out the distortion in my mind. It restored my peace!
Eventually I started making instrumental tracks. Actually I recorded 3 instrumental EP’s in this period.
I decided to include this track as I think sonically it really captures the PLUDO sound.
It’s very calming and ethereal but still upbeat and motivating.
It soothed and electrified my soul when I was creating it, I hope it has the same effect for you.
