VIBRATIONS PULSING THROUGH EXISTENCE
What does it take for the Individual to achieve their Higher Self? This is a question asked of the listener of Candle’s latest studio album Vibrations, released today on Layaway Records. Written in February 2014 as part of the annual online song writing challenge February Album Writing Month (www.fawm.org), Candle’s sixth studio album is the result of a new method of composing music. Looprication, a fellow FAWM participant, writes of Ochran – song number six from the album: “That sine wave start is like the gateway between worlds, a patient flat-lining, but opening the door to another existence. Very much the music you’d expect to hear creeping around in the catacombs of some ancient, undiscovered place by torchlight.”
Darby Spicer’s ongoing experimental space rock project Candle fuses psychadelic & progressive rock stylings with ambient sounds & textures that create emotion driven soundscapes that only need to be experienced to be understood. Darby composes various pieces built on the idea of feelings that can be provoked in the individual listener. It is his intention to stir up true emotions through the medium of music & philosophical poetry. Like a candle burning brightly, he wants to show the contrast of light & dark in the greyest area of human existence: that of the soul.
