about

Fiat lux. Let there be light.

With one phrase, the existence of our sphere began.
The creation poem of Genesis illustrates the magnum opus of God's artistry.
From the void our world is crafted, in explosions of colour and seismic shifts.
The blank canvas of the universe is traced with stars and a vast roadmap of planets.

But creation is not just a moment in time. It is an endless cycle.
The artist joins the arc of creation when he stares down a blank canvas.
The musician tackles the void with every note and verse.
Seven Days is our attempt to join the creation story. It's a journey that sees songwriters collaborating with writers and visual artists, creating their interpretations of each of the days of creation.

Track Name: Brian Platt - So It Began
So it began
Blazing colours squeezed through Your hands
And the dust flew from chalky wasteland
And so it began.

And the Earth, she’s gasping for breath
Oh and life comes from the depths
And the Sky she kisses farewell to the land
As they separate their hands
And so it began.

And so it began.

But for now
I’m sleeping on the concrete.
Prophesying on the pavement
Of broken bones and broken dreams
And I’m living on the edge of a void.

Out of nothing comes something
And so it began.

‘Cos every day’s a new creation
Every breath life
We started out with nothing
Now we’re something.

The Sun smiles the colours of dawn.
Like a mother she smiles at her new born

Out of nothing comes something

And so it began.
Track Name: Evan Cooper - Waters
Morning comes and breaks the night
The air is thick, the air is thick
Let’s clear the air, let’s separate
Like hate and love
Like hate and love

Back and forward, or up and down
Is the earth still, or does it spin around?
This water’s chill, it suffocates
Let’s clear the air, let’s separate

And if man’s to rule their worlds
This must be clear, crystal clear
To frame the calm of cascades still
With pain and death turn rivers red

Oceans come down
And rest upon the earth
Fall down from the sky

All this pain and this beauty for us to feel
When the light and the sound beams off through the air
I can’t believe all this could exist in space this time

And the spirit, it hovers for all to see
I’m new to this, but I like what I see
Track Name: Dave Baxter - Still
Here, I lie awake
The rock, divorced from the waves
The sound of the hills and the stone
Echo a promise made to fill up my home

So I wait in the dirt
I wait for the bones
I wait for Your word
To be spoke like a cold fresh wind that'll give me my own

I feel the life filling in my well
I feel my ground open up its mouth
And I'll show my sons and daughters how to grow
For all the blessed love, this is what I know

You shake stars to the sky
And You make them as guides in the night
As You speak these roots grow deep
To anchor a promise you still hold to me

So I still hold to You
Like you still hold to me
So I still hold to You
Track Name: Fraser Browne, Naomi Browne - Constant
Let there be lights
In the expanse of the sky
To separate day from night
Give us seasons, give us time
Ever constant
Spring, winter, summer, fall
You are constant

Let there be sleep
The stillness and stars
Moon changes by night
You remain, as we dream
Ever constant
Hour, minutes, days and years
You are constant

You mark the skies with signs
You sustain Matariki

Father, you find us
Even in the dark
You remind us
Again and again
Of Your constant love
Track Name: Ben Bartlett - Crash & Collide
Still me now my beating heart
My hands restless and eyes open in wonder
Feeling further past beyond
Me and my shelter.

Somewhere it's a part of me, I and I are one
Nature nurture my infancy
Awoo
Come and breathe together

Awoo. Awoo.
Oh come, come and breathe together.

Stay with me spine and spineless
And feathered friend what say words for
Father/Mother of time
Show me how it could've been...at the start.

Awoo. Awoo.

Come and breathe together
Breathe together

I see colour
I see colour and flight and blue sky
Burst through my eyes

I hear singing
Songs of the dark and deep
Crash and collide
Crash and collide
Crash and collide
Crash and collide

Come and take a hold of me
Come and take a hold of me
Come and take a hold of me
Awoo. Awoo. Awoo. Awoo.

Come and take a hold of me
Messengers of the light
Wandered of my heart
Show me how it could've been
At the start.

Awoo
Come and take a hold of me
Show me how it could've been
At the start. At the start.

Awoo
Come and take a hold of me
Show me how it could've been
At the start. At the start.

Come like colour
Come colour run
Crash and collide
Let us breathe together

Spine to spineless
Form and feather
Sing with me now
Let us breathe together

Come crash and collide
Awoo
Let us breathe together

Come colour and motion
Awoo
Let us breathe together
Track Name: Lydia Cole - Gather Me
When You gathered me
Dust was in Your hand
As the breath of gold lungs
Made dew upon the land

Gather me and gather me again

Lies will scatter my mind
Despite your watchful eye,
Active hand and warm smile
And brilliant design

Gather me and gather me again

I've a thorn I try hide
With threads I can't unwind
And I will fall in wars
That I don't recognise

Gather me and gather me again

Wonders of the Pure Heart
Made vivid in the sky
Wonders of the Pure Heart
The music of mankind

Gather me and gather me again

When You gathered me
Dust was in Your hand
As the breath of old lungs
Made new upon the land

Gather me and gather me again
Track Name: Edge | Kingsland - Lightshow
All of this divine
All of this The Artist’s design
Ours a hallowed earth
Under stars resounding with light

Dawn in every death
Heaven’s shade upon the landscape
God in every breath
The bread and wine in every sunset

So it is with the world
So it is with the way You are

And all the world is a lightshow
And the mountains scream Your name
I can’t help but join the song
And all the world is a lightshow
And it’s screaming out your name
I can’t help but join the song

The seas in endless sway
Just a fraction of the depths of You
The Maker in every mark
Skies designed to trace Your outline

So it is with the world
So it is with the way You are
