Check out The Baarn Projects’ next release today!
For Knocking (written by Max M. Lueders) our idea was to sort of grab the atmosphere of the Stax record label sound and instrumentations as an inspiration.
Think Soul & Rock from the 60’s.The Hammond organ and the horn arrangement are some of the elements reflecting that source of inspiration.
This groovy tune is about dealing with and overcoming the challenges of life.
Max: ‘I was inspired by Esther Hicks – a well-known American thinker, author and lecturer – to write this song. Her fundamental conviction – which she has advocated in countless public lectures – is that our emotions are a personal navigation system that helps us to better understand our position in life in relation to ourselves as well as to our social environment. Her theories are based on what she calls the ‘Law of Attraction’. If your thoughts are positive, you attract positivity, and vice versa. This ‘mind-over-matter’ toolbox to overcome challenging times fascinates me immensely.’
