This track is a special release for National Drone Day 2015, a day celebrating ambient, experimental, and drone music in Canada.

I took this "holiday" as a chance to get a little more experimental than usual. All of the guitars in this piece were recorded in one take using a loop pedal, and the synth and electric piano were overdubbed later.

The piece is based on the idea of resisting fear, even though the world around you seems terrifying.

"Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging." - Psalm 46:2-3
