1. ups et pertulerat (126bpm)
“Ups et pertulerat”, Latin for ups and downs, is an instrumental starting like a Hollywood action movie and transforming into musical euphoria. The progressive composition imitates the manic/melancholic ups and downs of life. The recording features a guest musician on bass, the brilliantly funky and versatile bassplayer T.E Svendsen.
2. Dance with fire (110bpm)
“Dance with fire” is inspired by shamanistic rhythms and invites to dance naked with your friends around an open bonfire under the pink moon.
3. God is what people make of it (120bpm)
“God is what people make of it” is a funky tune which introduces a social constructive perspective on organized religion, with references to the American political scientist Alexander Wendt as well as the work of American Professor of psychology John Henry Holland. Besides the theoretical background for the lyrics, the song was heavily inspired by comedian, and in the band’s perspective “a great contemporary philosopher”, Ricky Gervais and his show “Humanity”. The recording features a guest musician on bass, the brilliantly funky and versatile bassplayer T.E Svendsen.
