Conduit is my most personal album, as I set out to explore and convey myself and my identity through the art of musical instrumentation. Without any lyrical support, I explore various elements that make up my identity and who I am. I implement and use the power of sound to make listeners feel and tap into their emotions while refraining from using spoken language. The purpose of this was to individualize the listening experience so each listener could use this album that best suited their needs. Conduit is, Me, and with that, it places me in a vulnerable place by inviting listeners in on this journey of self-exploration, healing, discovery, and celebrating the significant events in my life.
This album is dedicated to those, present and past, who have had a major influence in my life. It is a love letter to those who helped shape me into the person I am today. To those who have been by my side since day one and those whom I have had previous conflicts with, this album is for you. With this album, I did a lot of self-reflection and wanted to create something to show my apologies and to make amends with those that I have done wrong. With my art practice, I create while being in a very vulnerable state, which is why I struggle with showing my process and incomplete work. However, when it comes to others and human communication, I struggle to allow people in, and in the past, have habitually built walls to protect myself. If I ever pushed you away, please know that I am sorry and would like to connect again. Thank you from the deepest part of my heart. I love you.
