Ancient Scrolling: A Social Media Detox Soundtrack In a world moving at full-digital-speed-ahead, the intention for this record was crystal clear: to create music that can accompany someone during a ‘social media detox.’ And, in order to best reflect such an intention, that music was to be created whilst the musicians – ourselves – were undergoing a seven-day social media detox. It wasn’t known exactly what lessons would be learned, or what kind of music would emerge… But over only seven days, a plethora of experiences emerged to inform us musicians during the creative process: observations of a dichotomy between loneliness and peace-of-mind, the recognition of differences between authentic communication and staged conversation, and the discovery of opportunities to cultivate personal discipline and renewed relationships with social media, to name a few. And what was particularly fascinating for the three multi-instrumentalists (Johnny Butler, woodwinds; E Scott Lindner, guitar/bass/engineering; and myself, Adam Ahuja, keyboards/drums), was that musical communication itself became an ultimate prescription for human connection. The music was conversationally-driven, mainly improvisational, dynamically sensitive, and more often than not, spacious and ambient. The album is diverse in instrumentation, yet consistent in its feeling. The music was created over a two-day span.
