"In "Fortitude" I played with samples of my own making in order to construct a soundscape that built from a simple progression of notes into an immersive, whimsical environment with varying textures and new approaches to the use and meaning of sound in my practice. I wanted to feel hope about the future and emit that to others, so I tried to make it sound very positive even when it is waning. It's really about maintaining a positive outlook despite the struggles we experience and witness around us. Instagram: @smokinhotqueer Flickr: acidpops97 "
