Here is a new song. It’s kind of a creepy one and part of me is a bit wary of sharing it because in it I’ve used a vocal sample of Charles Manson. Starting out I didn’t plan on using his voice, but somewhere along the line it seemed like the right fit.
I’m not sure if I’m trying to make a statement about Manson or not. I’m reluctant to say much about him because of the strong reactions he often brings forth from people. I think the song is more about ‘madness’ in general and not restricted to Manson and his followers.
I think there’s a tendency to want to write off certain people by calling them ‘insane’ or ‘mad’. But in doing so, we shirk the responsibility of having to really listen, think, and attempt to understand where they’re coming from.
