Elyon – To My Mother


gift for all moms~ enjoy N support great music~ – Arkisound

From Elyon: To My Mother. You’ve always been there for me. You’ve made so many sacrifices for my happiness and well being. You’ve chosen to live separately from your lover to support and protect two sons, who often time fails to show you the well deserved appreciations. How can I describe how much I love and appreciate you? Words are simply not enough. So.. I tell you how much I love you through the language I know best.
Feel free to download this song for free. It is my gift to all the mothers out there. Hope everyone had a wonderful mother’s day celebration. Tell your mom that you love her and show her your sincere appreciation. God bless and thank you. You are truly appreciated. https://soundcloud.com/elyonbeats

About Album: “Halcyon Keys” is a 3rd addition to Elyon’s “A Week with Elyon” (AWE) projects. For one week Elyon would create one brand new beat for each day. Every AWE project has a theme and this week’s theme is “Halcyon Keys.” Tracks 1-7 are from the AWE project, and 8-10 are added bonus tracks. While track 10 (My Childhood) is from Elyon’s tribute to Nujabes album titled “Dear Seba Jun” back in 2012, he thought the beat would also be a great fit for this project. Halcyon means: Calm; Peaceful; Tranquil. This album consists of beats with peaceful piano lines that would help putting one into tranquility. https://soundcloud.com/elyonbeats

The title track, “The Stargazer’s Scrapbook” was inspired by Esther Lac’s short novel. Little about the book. If you could tamper with your memories and rewrite them in your favour, would you? It’s actually a rather easy thing to do. Memories aren’t made purely from our interactions in the physical world. When we muse with our imaginations, we’re creating memories, too. When reality and fantasy intermixes over time, how can you draw the line between what’s real and what isn’t? In her early years, Lisanna Spring was raised by her grandmother, a memory collector who loved to tell stories with impeccable vividness to anyone who would care to listen. Often times it would be to an audience of one; Lisanna. When Lisanna’s grandma lost in a fight with Alzheimer’s disease and was forced to trade her beloved babysitting role for an ironic bedridden ending, she leaves behind a beautiful scrapbook as a memento for her granddaughter. After a period of hysterical denial, Lisanna discovers the dying wish her grandma had left for her in the scrapbook and intends to fulfill it by becoming a collector of more than just memories. If this sounds like a novel that you might enjoy reading, or might be a wonderful gift for someone, consider buying the book and supporting the author. bookstore.xlibris.com/Products/SKU-000760804/The-Stargazers-Scrapbook.aspx

About Album: “Avalanche” is personally my way of getting over a bad relationship with someone. I have been having hard time focusing on life because of the damage this said person have left behind. I’ve looked back and gathered every little information I could gather and compiled them into a story, and now, an album. I’ve always associated my built up emotions, both positive and negative, as this big, tall, snow covered, mountain, where the snow were on the verge of collapsing, causing a devastating avalanche. I felt like my heart was a gentle breeze away before collapsing and turning my life into a big mess. I’ve confessed my heartaches and emotion crisis to God, and through series of challenges and learning experiences, I’ve came to realize, this is just a phase in my life that will eventually pass. You see, no specific hardship is eternal. As cliche as this may sound, when we experience a perfect sunny day, we must also expect a storm somewhere in the future. Given that I am nocturnal, I coped with a lot of these heartaches in the late night. This was when I had the most intimate moment with God and surrounded myself with His compassion and comfort. The tracks are arranged in certain ways to tell my story of battling this horrible darkness that was trying to consume me. The battle comes to an end with the title track, “Avalanche.” This track is about me facing my troubled heart, the heart that is about to collapse. It is about me yelling at this troubled, snow covered, mountain, and watching it collapse before me. It is about letting all my built up emotions go free. It is about becoming free from being imprisoned in my own heart. I have been working on this album for a long time, and there’s a good reason for that. It takes good time for someone to carefully study the emotions that they have felt in the past, and analyze them thoroughly to translate them into songs. So, the question remains, “Am I over this person?” I do not know the answer to this question. There’s a saying, “Time heals all wounds” and honestly, I wouldn’t say that I am completely over my heartaches. However, having expressed my emotions, it is safe for me to say that, I feel much better and more “lively” for lack of better words. I hope you guys will enjoy this album. It is something personal, something meaningful, and something beautiful. Wishing everyone who’s going through similar pain right now, a good luck and wellness. Thanks for all of your amazing support, and I will catch you guys on my next release.
May God be glorified. “For to the snow he says, ‘Fall on the earth,’ likewise to the downpour, his mighty downpour.” (Job 37:6) https://soundcloud.com/elyonbeats
