Sea and Salt on Your skin

There are moments that make you run out of breath and out of words. There is no rational way to describe what you are feeling and what is going on. That is why we have music. The three songs on my upcoming EP have all grown from the same ground - the aim to illustrate feelings and experiences that cannot be captured in a simple explanation. Maybe somewhere there, between the lines you will find your story, your experience. That is what makes art and music so valuable and beautiful - only complete when shared. There is no right or wrong in experience and creativity. When nothing else makes sense anymore, music always does. Since as long as we have music, we have freedom to feel and freedom to be who we really are. Close our eyes and dive into the sound, live freely for at least those few minutes floating by. 

So here is my music. Three songs will be coming out one song at a time during the end of 2017. First one is Radiant, the 31st of October. Hope they will give you something. Freedom, love, wonder, confusion, joy - or something completely else. I would love hear what it is. Feel free to leave a comment.

Dear everyone, this is Sea and Salt on Your Skin. 

Love,
Meri

The summer ended yesterday. So did your love to me. It disappeared together with the last bit of summer breeze. Just like that, like nothing ever happened. Today was the first clear autumn day. Fresh like a blank piece of paper. And I knew it was time to turn the page. Sky was clear and I was standing on a cliff by the sea, looking at the cruise ships float by and city open up behind the rough harbor scene. I wanted to float away too. Escape everything and everyone, sail behind the horizon and fall into the unknown. There were way too many questions running through my head. Who was I? Who were you? What happened to us this summer? And, why did you go?

You walk in, unexpected. Your presence fills the room and from the very moment our eyes meet I can feel the extraordinary unity between us. You release something in me. Energy. Radiance. Your light spreads all over me. All the colors of the world suddenly make sense to me. All the windows open and let the sun in. You say something to me. Your words are like diamonds that I collect and keep. I am free. This is something fresh, new and unique. Structures and patterns that I used to believe in melt into each other and form something new. Surrounded by the music, you take my hand and I feel the stream of energy floating through my body. There is such a beauty in movement. Radiance.

The car lights turn into flashes in the night. A drive in the middle of the night. We are invincible, capable of anything. In this moment I feel totally alone and part of the universe. Freedom. City lights shine in the night. We are driving outside the city. To adventure, to the unknown under a sky full of stars. So in love it makes me want to explode. So inspired you cannot keep all the energy inside. These moments are so small and so great at the same time. To meet someone who you can reveal yourself to. We become free together. We release each other.

SEA AND SALT | 12/2017

I lean back. The cold seawater reaches up to my neck as I fall down. I am becoming one with the ocean. Melting in. Falling with the water. Floating. No clear picture of where I'm going, no clear picture of anything. Memories. Dreams. Deep, deep feelings. The past, the current and the future blend in together. Where does dream end and reality begin? Where do I end and you begin? Was everything how I remember it or will I always be blind? Shattered thoughts in the bottom of the sea. Pieces of a shattered mind. The ocean. Like me. Clear mirror to the skies, powerful storm in the night.
