Artist commentary:


So, uh, hi, I'm PoisonedElite, or Poize.

This is actually the second version of Calming Quartz.

The first version (which can be found here) I wasn't very happy with, so I ended up redoing the entire song, and now I like it!

I started the first version in June and then made the revision over the course of October in about 1-2 weeks.

The atmosphere of sounds echoing off of the quartz all over Aradia's land informed how I wrote the entire song.

I want to thank ndividedbyzero, Grace Medley, and everyone else for all of their help and advice on the song, as well as thanks to Nuclear for naming the song.

(p.s. special thanks to psithurist for being so cool.)

SplitSuns: (album organizer)

LOQAM has a very eerie atmosphere to it that is captured to amazing effect in this artwork. The jagged textures of quartz crystals provide a nice backdrop when paired with the howling, almost glowing sky. There's a ton of detail put into every area of this piece, and that's especially noticable in the Aradiabot occupying the left of the composition. Her damaged and decaying appearance helps to add to the unsettling nature of the piece. Aradia herself is also visible in the art as well. Isn't it a little weird that these two different versions of Aradia are in the same piece...? Then again, if there was ever to be a troll that showed up in two places at the same time, it's her.
