Man and His Tools
December 1, 2021

‘Man and His Tools’ delivers an evocative cinematic soundscape of eerie electronics crashing against euphoric instrumentals and a processional drum beat. Theodore’s warm distinctive vocal drops in to encourage escape from the dystopic landscape.
Theodore said about the track:” ‘Man and His Tools’ is really a metaphor for evolution, originally inspired by the first chapter of the film ‘2001: A Space Odyssey, The Dawn of Man’.
The song became even more relevant living through the dystopic reality that is Covid19 and the ongoing climate change crisis. These are the tools that got us into space, but at the same time are contributing to the destruction of the earth. The music alongside the video is about escaping these dark realities. I wanted there to be an underlying message of optimism running through the narrative and perhaps, in a way, try to inspire people to use these tools for positive change.
