IN/OUT / LEPIDOPTERA
IN/OUT by Lepidoptera is a collaboration between Kiera Varrese and Jess Healy. This song encapsulates and explores our mind and processes. Life can be tough, some tend to suppress their emotions and pour every inch of being into work, rather than allowing themselves to be introspective; to explore who they are and how to take care of their mind, body and spirit. IN/OUT represents the feeling of being overwhelmed. It follows the path our neurons take in our brain whenever we have a stressful thought or become overloaded. Though the song is two minutes and ten seconds long it symbolises only a split second in time, represented by an inhale at the beginning and an exhale to round it off. This piece had to be created over a string of zoom calls due to COVID restrictions. Although this was a challenging circumstance for the artists, they were excited to find their individual ideas flowed into the others seamlessly, resulting in a song they are incredibly proud of that will resonate with many listeners.
