The Essence of the Album

  

The album “Sanity” represents an essence of Self-Expression. Writing, singing, dancing – sculpting a message while processing raw emotion. “This album helped me keep going, and eventually articulate my emotions through a very intense time. I didn’t fully understand the pertinent role this played in maintaining my Sanity until later.”
While the first 6 songs on the album are self-reflection, Human Scars and Sanity (final two songs) represent self-realization. 1-6 define her process in going about the motions of life, asking questions and coming to a stronger sense of self. Human Scars is what we do with our emotional scars. Sanity is how we interact with our emotions. 

Saphira’s single “Sanity” written at age 16, shed a new light in 2017 while creating a Virtual Reality, 360° video representing interaction with four extreme moods of the subconscious mind.

 She expresses that, “The idea is we allow ourselves to be thrust in between our moods/states of mind, because they demand our attention. Truth is, we choose how we interact with every part of ourselves. 

In the video I learn that rejecting myself only causes dis-ease. In choosing to befriend these seemingly bazaar aspects of self, I’m able to navigate through my mind with a greater sense of ease.”

 “Sanity” was chosen as the single and album title with the theory that embracing what we enjoy most helps maintain our Sanity. She states that Music & Performance Art keep her Sane in this “wild world”.
“How do you interact with your emotions?”

She asks.

8. Sanity
