Reset

Restart after a tough time
Text, illustrations and music by Suug

Reset. To you it may seem unusual.
Reset plays with subtle energy. It could be classified as somewhere in-between Free Jazz, Electronic and Contemporary Music. That is, if you feel the need to fit it into boxes.
Reset. That's a fine beat, percussive: The piano is used as a percussion instrument.
And then, mixed in - here and there – field recordings, electronic sounds, and accordion.
Reset makes you want to move.
Liveliness. It’s unconventional, and demanding as well.
Reset was made for you; it was made for those of you on journeys of musical discovery.

Motivation

Reset is my restart. It is a fresh start for me, Suug.
It is a look ahead and a look back.
It’s a valve for the time since I got the diagnosis: cancer. –
Shock ...!! 😱 –
Thankfully, no more waiting: surgery is the next week.
Early stage - curable! – Breathe deeply ... –
Followed by months of pain. Rehab. Time to think.

"At first, it feels like a failure! –
But then, one day, enlightenment: this is my chance.
It’s a kick in the butt, indeed."
"Reset" by Suug

Reset is a story. It is a story for you all.
One realization: Sometimes things go wrong and these things make your body revolt.
At first, it feels like a failure! –
But then, one day, enlightenment: this is my chance.
It’s a kick in the butt, indeed.
But I can change.
Reset – a restart, my fresh start. "Just do it!" –

New worlds are opening up. –
And a new kind of "joy for life". –
Reset. A very different feeling:
Inner Joy.
I like to move.
Excitedly.
No more fear!
And all the time, the certainty: I keep my love.

Yours, Suug
