Music, the essence of sound, transcends so many different frequencies of life. The art; the pure, raw emotion. An ability to break free from the apprehensions we have constantly ran into. As an artist, Chafa does a beautiful, aesthetically sounding job expressing this similar premise of life. We must learn from our continuing journey.
Now since I’m not personally an expert on his genre of music, I can’t give full detail on what exactly Chafa does. Thankfully, once again appreciating the journey of life, Chafa and I were able to talk about his process a little for his last single ‘Abyss’.
Before I get into that, I want to at least say a little more on what I feel when I hear ‘Abyss’. From the beginning, this piece takes me on a path of affirmation. Knowing that I am deciding to take this road most people avoid, gives me a sense of purpose. An understanding of self among not just people, but the open abyss. That I must appreciate every single moment I have trudged through just to sit here and reminisce. Although, knowing that I still have a long way to go...
The Artist’s Influence:
"I wrote Abyss a few years ago when I was going through a low point in my life. I felt lost and defeated, and began suffering anxiety attacks shortly thereafter. I tried to make music to cope, but struggled to find inspiration. After succumbing to the proverbial ‘Abyss’, I began to write the main melody. I sought to create a minimal but powerful piece that captures the feeling of being lost and finding your way back”
Here at Push(soul) we appreciate all forms of art, creativity, and expression. Being able to shed light on artists such as Chafa continues that mission. Expand your mind and tune into the music.
