In 2015, I decided to do a bit of travelling to reward myself, having been stuck in a dusty lab for most of my PhD and project work, it was my chance to break out for a little while! I had an amazing time visiting Australia, Canada and USA, meeting some weird and wonderful characters along the way. However, as the saying goes, “all good things must come to an end” and that’s where the idea behind “Black Hole” came about.
I arrived back home after a total of 10 weeks away and, you guessed it, a major case of the holiday blues struck. It was as though there was a black hole, a void, culminating from the sheer sadness that I had during the “back to reality” phase.
So I opened up my music software and started creating this track, the bells that ring throughout representing me trying to call someone to pick up (like a telephone that just rings out) with the growing bassline and atmosphere as the sadness grew.
But hey, it’s ok now, I have some great memories to look back on and share travelling tips and tricks with you so you can plan some holidays yourselves to the amazing places the world has to offer.
