Cube Land

It’s been almost a year since I started working on this project, but last night I finally finished the Cube Land music video. I wrote this song after spending a full Saturday playing Minecraft. When I finally pulled myself from the computer I got to thinking a lot about escapism. I thought about all the different things people want to escape from… problems at home or work, anger, fear, sadness, loss, insecurities, painful things that happened in your past; all those inner demons we have. I thought about what I was escaping from. And I got to thinking that one of the most beautiful moments is when you finally break the hold those things have on you. I think it’s not something you do once in your life; it’s something you probably have to do many times.

It’s funny how certain projects materialize so quickly and can turn out exactly how you want them to turn out… whereas other projects won’t let you bring them to fruition for ages! In retrospect, I’m glad that this song and video took so long because I don’t think the ending would have been sincere had I completed it back then. Plus, releasing it now is my way of saying congrats to Notch and the Mojang team for finishing Minecraft, as well as sending a “thank-you” for making such a fun game that brings out creativity in so many people. I know this video might seem a bit dark or sad, but it’s really supposed to be hopeful. I hope you enjoy it:
