When I first composed this piece, I was simply journaling about the tensions surrounding university life. Soon I started imagining what other people go through during these years as they trying to figure out who God is, who they are, and how everything in between fits into the equation. I just kept scribbling the stuff that was coming to mind, and this groan/ache/confession of sorts came out.
This is in no way a theological statement, but sometimes art gives us windows into places clean-cut catechisms don’t go (though I especially enjoy a good catechism too). Tension like this can paralyze us with depression or engaged us with creative force… the choice is up to us. You’ll also see portions of “I’m a Uni” (for lack of a more flashy title) on the album cover itself, which my childhood friend and designer, Casey DenBleyker (visit www.redcarstudio.com) brilliantly pieced together.
