Interview with Glamozon Blog:
“It’s completely different!” she tells Glamazons. “It’s not a hip hop, R&B, soul album at all. It’s called CYMATIKA Volume 1, I’ll have other volumes as well.”
“Cymatika is the study of visual sound. They’ll put sand on a plate that is hooked up to wires and with certain sounds, vibration goes through to the plate and creates a geometric shape out of the sand. You’ll go from C note to D note and when you change the note, the sand’s formation changes. When you go back to C, the sand goes back to its original formation. It’s fascinating. As humans, we’re all energy and light and spirit; and sound plays a part in that because sound is simply vibrating energy. That’s what this album is about…about life and who we are, not being afraid to be who we are, and not forgetting our spirit.”
“The album is influenced by new wave and acid house, which I explored in my album “Because I Love It” in 2007, which was released in Europe. For the fans who heard that, they’ll say “Oh, I could see this coming.” For fans who loved the first album, they’re going to be like “What is this?!” (laughs) But I grew up listening to everything, and this is where I am now. And it feels right for me.”-Source
