"Sonder" is the cost of chasing a dream.

I release "Sonder" at midnight on my one year anniversary in Los Angeles, CA – a year that has been so painfully transformative I'm not sure I can elucidate much greater than this song.

"Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root:

pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance; it means

to suffer." -Mark Danielewski

I wrote "Sonder" at rock bottom. The mental plight that accompanies the pursuit of passion can be as equally destructive as it is fulfilling.

An individual's purpose (and moreover, turmoil) is as unique as the genetic code from which it is extracted. As I pondered this, a sense of morose engulfed me. I will never fully understand anyone's motives, dreams, desires, reasoning – as they forever exist in a foreign realm.

This notion awoke a sense of self-awareness.

I am only myself. I am the keeper of my fortune. I have the power to respond to doubt, fear, rejection, and failure on my own accord.

So I did. As much as "Sonder" is about agonizing turbulence, its fruition reveals a light in the dark."

This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
