The Big Release
We all have to begin somewhere, don’t we? It all begins with an uneasy feeling. A rumbling deep down inside. You feel this trembling, a tremendous amount of energy trying to come through, to either be released or tamed... I say dance it off!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved #sketching, all while listening to #music and making playlists. They’ve been with me my whole life. I’ve turned to #art and music during all highs and lows. When I needed healing these two have always been my saviours, guiding lights through the waves of life. They define me as a person as well as my lifestyle.
The Science of Music and Art
Allow me to get scientific for a second. Studies have shown that music releases dopamine (the feel-good chemical) in our brain. To make it a bit more smart-assy, when it comes to electronic music (and I must emphasise I am not talking mainstream EDM here, I mean strictly deeper, more meditative, soulful, minimal shades of house and techno music), there is a significant increase in beta-endorphin, adreno-corticotropic hormone, plasma norepinephine, growth hormone and cortisol. Electronic music induces changes in neurotransmitters, peptides, and hormonal reactions related to mental state and emotional involvement. It lessens pain, changes your emotional or mental state and even helps you grow. But this only applies if you like it, as otherwise it has the ability to worsen the emotional state, so in my opinion, your personality will determine how you respond to #electronicmusic 😉
Dance floors are open to all and remove the hierarchy between race and class. Society rules are non existent. And although there is an illegal substances stigma that is attached to the electronic music industry, I can openly say that the highest I have been, was after taking my anti allergen on an empty stomach one “crazy” night in Ibiza. I am that girl. Low key, non drinking, non smoking, let me dance, not leaving until my feet are killing me kind of girl. Feel free to judge me🤣 Being lucky enough to have danced in some of the best festivals and clubs in the world, I can only confirm that the feeling of love and solidarity in each and every one of those places was positively overwhelming. Every. Time.
Art + Music = RTILY
Electronic music resonates with people because it encourages us to feel, yet it doesn't tell us how to feel. It invites us to interpret tracks in a very personal way. And that is exactly what Remember That I Love You is about. Every piece of art I create is linked to a piece of music that inspired it: https://www.rtily.co.uk/music. Give it a listen and let me know what you think.
If music is what feelings sound like, then I will spend my life showing the world what feelings look like. Giving you all the freedom to interpret those feelings yourself.
