A Fisherman 03:22
Swimming with the dolphins Befriending at least six hundred fish Carp, flounder and guppy Yeah, I go in the deep water I’m so fed up with all of their lies I can stay diving for hours at a time Nothing else more interesting going on above At least not by my judgment As I am the fisherman Even if nobody else recognises it Yeah, I belong in the ocean With the sharks and the clownfish I don’t care if it’s wet down here It has enough water to last me for years You might think it strange I am the fisherman

Enstasy - Back to Today

Runtime: 49:55

The second album from Irish ambient artist Adam Hutchinson under the moniker Enstasy was partly inspired by his diet of cinema consumed across it's recording. These stories aren't autobiographical - Adam found himself writing many tracks from the point of view of characters in films he was watching at the time. 'Restlessly' is from the perspective of someone putting a ghost to rest, 'Ahura Mazda' from that of a cult member. 'A Fisherman' is told from the point of view of someone who has deluded themselves into believing they're a fisherman.

Much of 'Back to Today' also takes inspiration from Adam's religious studies of Manichaeism and Zoroastrianism. 'Ligaments' explores Manichaeism's rejection of the body as a mere cage and the belief of the soul as particles of light trapped inside.

Aside from the cello on Tracks 1, 6 and 11 provided by Tijana Mihajlovic, Adam utilized Microfreak and Deep Mind 6 synthesizers, piano, and several children's instruments such as lute, recorder and xylophone to compose 'Back to Today'.

All other songs written, arranged, produced and performed by Adam Hutchinson. Recorded across March and April 2021.
