about

The new Comaduster single "Emergent One" is a lead off, but stand alone single for the upcoming 'Solace' concept release.

It won't be on the release itself.

This song tracks a key point in time, and realization for the protagonist of the story, who is an individual of the last remaining intelligence in the universe. A cluster of beings who know very little about where they come from, why they are there, or how long they've been there. They live near the heat death of the universe, and spread themselves across the cosmos to live off of the remaining heat entropy, and they must all do so in order to mutually survive. Trillions of years are inconsequential and undetectable to these beings.
At some point, and over very long periods of time, Blackfolds (bubble/pocket universes) begin to arise out of the stagnant space-time. Some of these beings become entrapped within the Blackfolds, and live out entire alien existences within those folded universes, experience things completely outside of their experience, and are eventually ejected back into the austere existence they came from (and some don't make it out). Some of them live as gods within the Blackfolds. Some live as individuals.
The protagonist in the overarching story gets pulled in to one, and ends up being divided in to two separate individuals. When the Blackfold that they have become entrapped in (Solace) starts collapsing, the being mutually self realizes that it must re-unite with its other half in order to escape the collapse as one, to be a complete being on the ouside, and recreate Solace in their image with something called 'The Retracer' (I'm obviously skipping over a lot here...).
You can think of the end of this song as akin to trying to escape from a blackhole.
One half does not make it out. The story continues beyond that, and develops before that.

This song had taken on a more personal meaning over course of the last few months, so I've decided to polish it up and release it separate of the Solace release, and to act as a precursor for what's in store (and, well, not in store). It will not be included on the Solace release however! Hope you enjoy!

More to come.



count the waves
in perfect phase
over and over not to
sway

but I sought a glimpse of time
preceding my own light
we'd better see it now
that breaking away from the chasm will leave us all alone.
fuck

we'll emerge as one
and replace this outcome
we'll revert the suns
to save where this begun

emerge as one
replace this outcome
reverse the sums
just say where this begun

when you talk
your time is leaking
constants broken
edges bleeding

to leave
I thought
to bend
the past that flows from the ends

we're concurrently estranged
in all we've lost in here
but the worst will shift to red
if can find you

we'll emerge as one
and replace this outcome reverse the suns
and replace when this begun

your
fragments
shred up
to the surface
our solace ends here but I won't see you
leave

When you talk
your time is bleeding
Constants broken
edges beating
