To sonically inform and to remind our own admission for humane, physical intimacy; and through our own present social construct - projecting our turbulent; misguided belief/s as two point of views - the Traditionalist and the Progressive.
addressing Admission & Anxiety
I am not a psychologist nor I am educated enough to know any scientific nor biological references as a study - but my sincerest belief tells me that we; dare I say it - are never able to express nor to communicate one aspect well with each other - it's called anxiety.
In late 2009, it came to my attention everything I have listened thus far have only made to inform me - as a listener - to only have found music solely for itself to be discovered, to be heard and sustained / promoted / flourished - for linear, profitable means to the other end / third party. But never have been truly taken as how it relates to one's own set of circumstances; either to themselves or upon others.
What I mean is taking the time to address almost anything surrounding life thus far and taken that as a context as to how music has impacted me; both physically and mentally. I have always longed to create a "different" listening context where a set composition demands respect, and sensibility amongst its' listeners; whilst still leaving room for any and all open-ended reflection/s.
I am not a psychologist nor I am educated enough to know any scientific nor biological references as a study - but I sincerely believe from a gut reaction that there is one thing that we are; dare I say it - are never able to express nor to communicate well with each other - it's called anxiety. Whether you internally feel completely unable to succeed in (technically speaking) all paradigms of life. Or for never being able to get nor to afford the things you want.
In whatever forms, anxiety is ubiquitous in the midst of our own everyday ignorance. The more we let it "subside" hoping it would resolve itself, it would only get worse - simply because we are afraid of communicating what it is we truly after.
We are afraid to discuss within the normalcy of today over something hideously primal at first sight or first notice, yet this ironically; is a natural endeavour for every human being.
SEXUALITY; as it is frowned upon
Our own willingness for primal admission that "it" exists, its' existence to be recognised, and nourished; is never seen as ubiqutiously accepted in the wider context of the presently inegalitarian socio-political construct.
In whatever or however ways one wish to look upon it: anxiety; in or of itself - is never linear and yet it is ubiquitously embedded to almost each and every endeavours we sought; whether for ourselves or for others. Unless if this is met with a willing and for a mutually compassionate reason; most likely by the social-advocacy minority - any measure of hope for a lone victim to continue to move on with life will ultimately; diminish.
Of course; as you or anyone would expect; there are almost infinitely varying depths and levels of definitions what you may call someone; or something is in effect - in an anxiety or in an anxious state. I can go all day long describing about what sort of anxieties I have throughout my life thus far as an adult, but never have I ever experienced nor came to a conclusion of identifying a particular sort of which nothing in the world is able to constitute. A sort of which it is most frowned upon in the face of reality.
Our sexuality. Our own willingness for primal admission that it exists, and its' existence to be recognised, and nourished. It is never seen as remotely accepted in the wider context of the presently inegalitarian socio-political construct.
It sounds remarkably simple - so long as we know that we have to nourish this inner need - voluntarily or otherwise without objections nor undue external judgements - surely that would be the panacea for all anxieties? The indoctrinated, fixed form reality of today unfortunately opposes that. I am saying "opposes" simply for because for the fact that the society we have lived in have been misguided, to eventually have become thoroughly inegalitarian.
Evolution survives through possibilities of diversity and exotic social endeavours, reception and understanding. Not by "common" laws or politics; for all this is simply a manmade-expectation, a constructed law; and by which none of this is natural by context of biology.
Politics over nature / current climate
The "reality"; by definition of the world we live in today - impose harsh penalties, and undue judgements over anyone who merely questions against the overly-protectionist, conservative, traditional beliefs in sexuality. This project aims to gently expose that not as a threat or a blame but purely as an observation at its' current climate.
We ourselves have unknowingly welcomed politics to intervene our own biological processes. We've welcomed politics and numerous spiritual indoctrination/s to define us from childhood over what should be right or wrong. As such, for those who have woken up or at least - stayed true for what their primal beliefs - have stood up for change; to challenge the systemic, socio-economic elitism.
But sadly as far and few recent social conventions (rising awareness towards same-sex marriage/s, polygamy, hypergamy, failures of feminism, etc) - they remained as a secluded minority; in which the greater Society always frowns, and criticises as they are simply not part of the rest as "one" same-ness; or simply because of what the majorty believe or think of these people as not righteously nor welcomely part of the "same status quo".
This in restrospect, as a given - the "reality"; by definition of the world we live in today - impose harsh penalties, and undue judgements over anyone who merely questions against the overly-protectionist, conservative, traditional beliefs in sexuality. I would dare to believe with all my heart - that I will be most definitely and immediately be punished or even found under some sort of judicial punishment for expressing this project as a whole for merely creating something that everybody relates to sensibly, and most important of all - individually. To each and everyone of their own.
And thus came a moment I feel compelled to write a series of set compositions projecting two different opposing beliefs of how we react to it - the conservative (sensationalist, sentimentalist) and the progressive (egalitarian, realist) perspective/s. A soundtrack that portrays exactly this current stigma & widespread reaction as a gentle attempt to expose the current state of emotions; at its' recent and current climate NOT as a problem, and not something to blame or as an issue - but as gentle form/s of observation of this anxiety at its' current state.
The only thing that LADY strives and conceptualised to portray is only to remind one's own implicit ways of understanding, acceptance, tolerance, and realising our own admission of this inner need; regardless how that need is fullfilled between two consenting adults. Something to make us forget of all we know as "politics", "upbringing" and (for lack of better word) spiritual "indoctrination" - by listening to anything that inspires us to realise this primal admission; of which it exists simply for what it is.
With honesty, transparency and of all - sensitivity and respect. These are what has been undertaken the most effort of all the years in the making.
Nothing more, nothing less.
A project unlike any other I've set upon. A sonic commemoration of our own admission for this inner need. Regardless of what political upbringing or alignments; a set composition that shows and reassures no room for judgement.
