Sam Vega - Mind the Gap - Submission

Short URL to this article: http://weeklypodcast.net/un3

A song about gaps, doors, and other lives.

That's all that was included with this submission. It's a trippy track, definitely very interesting.

Sam Vega apparently does not believe in providing the listener with info about him or his music. 'The music speaks for itself' kind of thing I suppose.That doesn't work that well with this here blog, I'm afraid, but hey the music is good so I thought I'd share it here.

I have no info on this song, or on Sam... the link to the track wasn't even included in the submission...

So, that's the end of this post!

  1. Hi,

    A bit about me: a producer who tends to make darker post rock tracks. Influences come from anywhere from prog rock to folk, classical to trip hop.

    My production methods are mainly iOS based but I dabble in recording live instruments including piano, guitar and vocals.

    The name SamVega is a bit of fun really.

    Samvega is actually a Pali (an ancient Indian language used at the time of the historical Buddha). It's a hard word to translate because it covers such a complex range — at least three clusters of feelings at once: the oppressive sense of shock, dismay, and alienation that come with realizing the futility and meaninglessness of life as it's normally lived; a chastening sense of our own complacency and foolishness in having let ourselves live so blindly; and an anxious sense of urgency in trying to find a way out of the meaningless cycle. Sounds very contemporary strangely.

    Its these sort of ideas that tend to inspire my productions. Ha ha cheery stuff eh?


  2. Hey Alex, thanks so much for dropping by and leaving more info.

    My take on the anxiety and sense of urgency to break out of the cycle is... I am the cycle. I cannot break out from my perception (normally). So, I am everything and I am nothing. And that's all there is.

    Once I experienced that realisation everything changed. I have met others who had the experience but they felt dismayed... for me it just brought an immense sense of calm and, in a way, power. I can change the world by changing myself, that's empowering.

    I am everything, and so are you.

    More music please!


  3. OK that's cool. There is no denying anyone's personal experience is there? So I am totally with you on that.

    Everyone has to realise the truth of their own existence for themselves, no one else can show them. They might be able suggest things to do/not to do or ways to look at things (perceptions etc) but ultimately its down to the individual to the make the effort.

    Now back to the music!
