when i had finished writing biophilia, i realised it need a
universal theme, a theme song for the apps. .… as if it were a
film. and this is the song for that. i came up with this
homemade theory that for the egyptians, jews, first nation
people, all tribes, their creation myths were their science
and that the big bang was simply our
civilisation’s creation myth and after few centuries, people
would find ours naive. so i mentioned this to sión which then
wrote the lyric. i wanted the choir intro and outro to be like
planets going on orbit, so curved glides and with the brass
imagined a national anthem for the galaxy
if there is such a thing...
