Half The Universe by Amphibic – Free Music Feature MP3
A beautiful track in honour of a tragic day. This weeks free feature ‘Half The Universe’ by Amphibic is the artists reaction to the trauma of 22.07.11.
Neal Hoffmann is a London based singer/songwriter who, after touring in Norway with Ephemera in 2003, fell in love with the country and its people. He has since been back several times and thinks of himself as “an insider on the outside.”
He managed to teach himself Norwegian by reading Norwegian books and articles on NRK.
When the events of July 22nd 2011 unfolded, he was following the developments online and, like thousands of others, could not believe what was happening in Norway.
He wanted to talk about the event but not about the perpetrator. He imagines, that if you lose someone close, a part of your world disappears. The pain cannot be put into words. It cannot be explained. An artist, however, can try to approach it with his/her own view and understanding and see what will happen. What happened in Neal’s case, was a song called, ‘Half the Universe (is missing)’.
