The debut project of my 10+ years on this journey through music.

Hvdson is an 'archailect persona simulation' sent into a simulation from the post-singularity to experience the information age before the synchronization of humans and machines.

The overall theme is insecurity, with the album title In Security being a play on words of insecurity. This general theme came from the realization that, as humans, we all have our own inner demons and insecurities to deal with, stemming from a combination of factors, such as societal norms, mental health issues, genetic predispositions, etc…, but there’s still a social stigma surrounding vulnerability and insecurity. With Hvdson being a genderless, raceless, and faceless entity with a mirrored mask, this creates separation from the listener and audience, and allows people to project themselves onto the character. Though the character I am trying to convey through Hvdson is essentially ‘not human’, the underlying, fundamental truth coming from the music touches upon a common emotion that has recently been more prominent in the information age - loneliness. The advent of hyperconnectivity gives us instant access to almost anyone or anything in the world. Even some relationships are built through online personas, some never coming into fruition. With technological advancements, we are able to create perfect online personas - a projection of our perfect image. But perhaps in this pursuit, we distance ourselves further from reality. This will be criticised through a “paradoxical superhero”; though Hvdson appears to have the external look of a powerful being, the character and persona of Hvdson will be sensitive, powerless and fragile. The album plays with this idea through the use of auto-tune and pitch correction. On the listener’s journey, at the beginning, the vocals and manipulated and corrected very obviously, as a crude attempt to cover up imperfection. But as the album progresses, the use of pitch correction and vocal manipulation is minimized, and symbolizes Hvdson coming to terms with the idea that nothing can ever be perfect.
