Breathe! Robot the meaning

Claudio Vittori is the producer of Collateral Nature. He wrote and produced the music and most of the lyrics of the new debut Album Morning Mars. The first single will be released on the 5th of July called Breathe! Robot. But why Breathe! Robot? What is the meaning behind this first single of Morning Mars.

“I composed Breathe! Robot thinking about the human breath and how little importance we assign to this vital mechanical action full of life force. Not only in life but on a spiritual level it calls for an awareness to differentiate between what is purely human and what is artificial. In the near future it will be increasingly difficult to distinguish the human form from a robot. In the breath we will find the essential distinction of life. 

Breathe! Robot is an invitation to stop for a moment and breathe deeply, to understand the difference between automaton and being aware. 

In our modern society nothing has a clear boundary any more and  when you think you are progressing often you end up in the same place like a hamster with its wheel.

True wealth is to be able to understand the profound meaning that exists between living and surviving and being able to transcend from it. In other words stepping outside of the rat race. We are slaves to the propulsive thrust that we have inflicted on ourselves for decades. We just have to have more and more since the era of technology launched us in a mad rush with ephemeral ambitions. If we keep following this progression we are no longer needed, either the technology or the earth will take over,  so maybe it’s time to start breathing, robot.

I composed the song by only using the instruments we use on stage (piano, ambient pad, bass and drums). Giving prominence to the dynamics. A dialogue between full and empty and intimate and dilated moments creating a living rhythm. 

Key are the pauses when the breath is released giving a sense of communication between the outer world and the inner emotional experience.”

Breathe! Robot will be available on the 5th of July 2021 and will be available on all streaming platforms and in both stereo and Dolby Atmos format. Breathe! Robot will also be available in a game format you can play on this website.  If you would like to listen to Breathe! Robot subscribe to our newsletter. You can have a pre-listen.

Tre, the meaning of the number 3

Clear is that the number 3 is one of the building blocks of life. A triangle is one of the most stable building blocks as many discoveries are divided by 3. Why the interest from Flower of Sound in the number 3? Collateral Nature’s new single is called Tre and we dived for the 3D video deeper in the meaning of the number 3. Also Tre is the third single of Collateral Nature’s Morning Mars album (Breathe! Robot (1), Morning Mars (2) and now Tre (3)). In this blog we explore the deeper meaning of the number 3.

The inspiration of Tre came from the 3 instruments that are used to create the song: “Written in one go with a precise bass line in mind, the song is as simple as it is hypnotic. It supports the evolution of the Rhodes piano and the drums that draw you into the psychedelic soul of the track.” Claudio Vittori produced and composed the song.
