Solids, Liquids, and Boxes

This is an older recording, from when I used to record under the name "Magpie"

I have been thinking about the importance of consistency in art. It can be very easy to find yourself putting shackles on your creativity, in an attempt to reel yourself in artistically. Quite often I run into this dilemma. there is a clash of ideas in believing that good art of any kind isn't about self indulgence, that its about sharing and reaching out emotionally, while also believing that great artistic work can come out of self indulgence, experimentation, and expressing left field ideas for their own sake.
It's always a good time to question the boxes that we have put ourselves in, and not just with our art.
