My View of Happiness


For me happiness denotes more than contentment, being pleased or at least not displeased with one's lot, and of course is not the same thing as fun, when one is pleasantly distracted by an activity or other beings. 

Happiness for me implies a sweet spot in terms of energy stimulation, i.e. when one is at one's optimum in terms of energised immersion in life, whether through an activity, being with other people or simply just being alive.

Melancholy Melody | original piano and vocals song




The song version of my composition Melancholy Melody. The lyrics reflect a disenchantment with mainstream culture but I hope the melody makes up for their blasé nature. There are two of me singing against the piano backing to create a choral effect but they are separate vocal performances synced together, despite looking almost the same. Thanks for tuning in!

Upwards & Forwards | original piano and vocals song




The piano and vocals version of my composition Upwards & Forwards. The lyrics of this song were inspired by my reading about MK Ultra/Project Monarch ritualised (child) abuse. Hardly fun but I hope the song's harmonies make up for the dark subject matter. There are two of me singing against the piano backing to create a choral effect but they are separate vocal performances synced together, despite looking almost the same.
