Centrifuge written by Pranas Kentra
“Centrifuge is a song that I wrote in spring, 2014,
on the day when some news struck me and sitting down
with my instrument seemed like the only option for that day.
The song title is not about a washing machine.
It is about ego. I think that every human from his or her perspective is the centre of events and life sort of spins around each of us.
Some "centrifugal” forces in one’s mind could
spin things away from the centre and lower one’s ego. Constantly learning and remembering to move that ego away seems to me like a nice ideal of living life and doing one's job.
The song order on the CD and their moods
might hint a story of how one might perceive life:
starting with an easy, rockfish and party like arrangement of Nardis, moving on to the darker and complicated tune of Stefan, continuing with the song about one’s favourite things
which leads to Now’s the Time (time to change?)
and finishing with Centrifuge.”
