On June 25th I released a project called 'alined'
It includes 2 new original songs and a performance video with dance, nature and lines
What would the world look like if you could see every connection? If all things connected would have a line between them. You could see the pressure on a thread, almost tearing. And you could sow them back together. If you could see the lines vanish. Would we be more aware of how our connections influence us?
Would we be alined?
‘Alined’ is a project about the journey to alignment. I discovered, uncovered and became aware of connection, styles of attachment and patterns in forming those lines. Realizing how past experiences can influence the way of connecting. And knowing when to hold on, or when to let go.
The song ‘Tear Between’ is about my own journey discovering how I connect with people. About being vulnerable, trusting and ‘being’ instead of fighting. ’The Fall’ is about the story of a person who is near and dear to me. It’s a song about standing on the line between letting go and holding on, not knowing which way to fall.
This project portrays a journey of awareness of your style of attachment, the connection with yourself and others and how those connections are influenced by the past and influence the present.
‘Alined’ includes 2 new original songs, written by Maya, and a performance art video. Maya has worked together with an amazing team of people that supported her in this project. Full credits are at the end of the video and in the description.
I hope you enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed making!
Stay alined <3
