Everett James – Enigma EP

The Concept & Composition of The Enigma
An enigma (from Greek ???????, plural enigmas or enigmata) is a puzzle, something mysterious or inexplicable, or a riddle or difficult problem.I experienced a complete lack of inspiration from all the digital music and computers. I had experienced the computer crash which lead to the recordings on THE LOST TAPES. This crash left me with no digital equipment or computer to work on. Simultaneously, I fell in love, and for the first time experienced the companionship of a woman in my life in a “real” relationship. As a man in love, we begin to understand that there is only one true enigma on earth. There is one subject that man can study infinitely yet could never fully understand. The complexity and beauty of woman. The concept developed from the abandoning of all things that were not true analogue sounds. Woman is natural beauty and living so the sound had to be real. The instrumentation is very simple recorded from drums, bass, guitar, and fender rhodes. The recording process was very raw and live.

This is my attempt to further develop a sound that is far away from what is currently labeled soul, hip-hop, or urban music. In composing “The Enigma” I gained inspiration from an extremely wide selection of music and art that challenged the listener and moved forward. I also wished to show the beauty of live instrumentation and the human voice. This musical offering is to reintroduce the sound to a world that has become so sequenced, sampled, digital, and auto-tuned.
I hope this musical blessing lives with you as it has with me. This EP will be available this spring and you will be hearing more as we put the finishing touches on this project!Thank you
