Chasm – July 2020


Featured Artwork by Kira Issar

New growth can be panoramically different from other phases of life. Chrysalising into a newer semblance of personhood is as painful as the nostalgia of readjusting to a previous life, an entire pathway unknown.

Why are we fascinated with blackholes? Is it because we are exceptionally curious or is it because the lightlessness of the blackhole mirrors our emotional(less) state. Compared to dewy tinkling suns that (un)reflect another transcendental state of mind-scape; of imagination and fulfillment.

What comes to us when we are falling into cycles of unending pain. Do we still chrysalis in the end? With luminescent wings and all? Here, growth can be celebratory and bleak, revelatory yet processing and ultimately infinite. No full-stops— Music echoes the mood of this.

The sounds of this playlist traverse from Contemporary Soul, Indie Pop to Hindustani Classical with tinges of Electronic music. We hope somewhere in the rhythmic continuum of this chasm, you hear parts of your growth.
