    "We Will Break Out" is a modern, minimal chorale piece that incorporates a musical structure from world spiritual trance traditions filtered through the lens of American secular electronica.  

    The layers build steadily to a climax of declaration and a sudden abrupt ending.  It is written for SSAATTBB choir with an accompanying string instrument (piano, electric guitar, etc). ©℗2013 Vanessa Boyd

    Lyrics: We will break out and fly.

Agnostic Electric Gospel - Chill, sutra psychedelia

AEG was written in preparation for my trip to Nepal where it was debuted live. My goal was to create an album of music about love without referencing religion or romance.

It's a solo album. I play the electric guitar and sing, with a plethora of effects units. There is looping on both guitar and vocals, and I developed a tactic of tapping a piece of metal against the pickups in order to loop a rhythm on some songs.

Much of this album comes directly from the sutras I was creating for myself during a time of healing. The sutras changed my life, and I hope they inspire you too.
