about

“Mutualism” is a metamorphic meditative new track, embodying our relationship with nature, symbiosis transformation and collective consciousness. It was created over lockdown in 2020 through a remote collaboration between 14 multidisciplinary NYX artists and spoken word artist MA.MOYO aka Belinda Zhawi. Responding to interdependence as a necessity negotiated by conflict and compassion, MA.MOYO’s spoken word transformed into a meditation through nature. Each natural element, awakening different physical senses with an invitation to align and connect through a central mantra: “meet me in the middle”.

lyrics

Meet me in the middle
Says the fire
My freedom is your freedom
Yours is mine
Freedom
The grey matter in between
Is ours to share
But you hold the bow
and I the arrow
Its tip in my chest
You’re pulling away
I’m letting go
Will you meet me in the middle

Meet me in the middle
Says the air
Lying on my back, suspended
With nothing but air beneath me
With nothing but space beneath me
With nothing but time beneath me
And the end
Is the middle

Meet me in the middle
Says the earth
You nourish me
with your songs
Funny, and sad
Your words hold me
Anchored
Dug into the soil
I live by your means
By your cycles

For that is the only way to live

Meet me in the middle
Says the water
Your dilated eyes
watch the clouds gather
Meet me in the middle
Is the hour before dusk
The creek high
Reflecting low sky

My freedom
Is your freedom
Is mine
Is yours
Is my freedom
Is your freedom
