Remain In Stasis by Marc Durkee
Remain In Stasis by Marc Durkee is the ten track progressive rock album that is raw to the core and a clear labor of love. The album delves into topics of depression as well as the lack of true communication in a world so connected. In his own words Durkee writes;
I’m very happy to share this album with the world. It’s been a lengthy, but an ultimately satisfying process and I’ve learned a lot from it. Hopefully, it will be well received and people will appreciate what I was going for with the diverse mix of songs and styles. I like to also add, that this release is a very a personal one to me. I’ve been stuck in a state of depersonalization for almost five years now. For me, it’s been a chronic symptom of dealing with years of depression and stress, and it’s unrelenting. When it’s at its worst, it removes mostly all motivation and enjoyment from my life. While that is unfortunate, it does serve as a major source of inspiration for my song-writing. The album also serves as second meaning that is more political and universal. I feel that humanity is at a unique point in our history, with technology and social media allowing us to communicate and express ourselves in ways that were previously unimaginable. And yet, nobody really DOES communicate. It seems as though it’s mostly used as a platform to bicker over political ideals and agendas and create discourse, or for anyone to use as their own personal performance venue. Everyone wants to be seen and heard, even those who really don’t deserve to be.
