Fighting the Ocean by Anesthesia

Anesthesia is the musical project of James Daly. Several of the prelude and instrumental songs played at TNL are by Anesthesia. The following is thoughts on the song “Fighting the Ocean” from the upcoming release “The Paradinha”.

Inevitability. This is where this song and many others reside for Anesthesia in this season.  Determining how to deal with the ever present reality of inevitability: life, death, man against the weight of the ocean, gravity, failure, loss of heroes, resolution, change, the end of things to come.

Much of the struggle with art resides in the desire to always resolve everything.  Music mimics life in this way.  Most don’t know how to live in tension and process that is devoid of the knowledge of resolution and outcome.  Most question the point and check out in the process.  This is no way to live.  Don’t live a life missed.

Anesthesia’s first album, “Wake Up” is available on iTunes and Amazon or visit anesthesiaproject.com
