ataraxia | fixed electronic playback

(2016)

The Greek word, ataraxia, is defined as “calmness untroubled by mental or emotional disquiet”. The word was used by the Greek philosophers, Pyrrho and Epicurus, to describe a tranquil state of happiness achieved when worries of the unknown, be they the future, death, afterlife, etc, are dispelled. This piece is a meditation on this state of serenity. Electronic sounds are paired with thunderstorm samples to create a calm, timeless state in which one can reflect on life and death to help achieve ataraxia.
