"Music has always been a space for me to think, to reflect, to slow down, and to receive clarity. In times of unrest and uncertainty, music disarms the hate both within me and the hate that surrounds me. It is a place that no words can describe, a place where we can be fully accepted. Music is a place of resonance, and with resonance comes peace, with resonance comes clarity." by Julian Loida, Musical Arts, USA / Kittery, MA, Day 21 / July 25, 2020.
