"Motion Reimagined", a companion LP meant to be listened to after digesting Ataraxia's 2017 LP "Eternal Perfect Motion", is a triumphant show of force from eighteen year old producer and pianist Emmy Pehrson, otherwise known as online alias Ataraxia. Two remasters of the lead singles from "EPM" provide the groundwork for this musical reshuffling, the punchy, repetitive beats and dramatic vocal performance from Vylet cutting through the mix cleaner and sharper than ever before in "Fairylights" while Intersekt's gliding synth work is even more audible than before under the heartbroken pleas of Ink Sparks channeling Queen Chrysalis in "Viridescent." While these remasters are all well and good on their own, Levia comes through with an intense drum and bass remix of "Fairylights," while Atlas Grey shakes the earth with a concussive, experimental dubstep rework of "Viridescent."
This new LP also contains two never before heard singles ("Lightheaded" featuring Ink Sparks, and "Floating"), three establishing tracks ("A Vision in the Dark", "Sun Above the Sea", and "Inside Voices"), and a thunderously experimental VIP version of "Viridescent" created by Ataraxia himself.
Coming in at just over 35 minutes in length, this experimental concept LP will play nicely with fans eager for more after "Eternal Perfect Motion," and sets the stage for even more fans to discover the ever-changing permutations of sound that Ataraxia creates from his home studio in Vancouver, BC.

Bruises on your hips and eyes glazed, feeling distant. I’m faded, I am dazed. The smoke signals calling me out of my cage, I’m waiting, feeling strange. You pull me in close but I’m still cold, I’ve got this feeling in my chest it’s for the best. We go off on our own, see the world in our own type of mindset. It feels so good having my own judgements, making my own decisions. It feels so nice going out with a bang, not gonna boomerang this time around and back to you. Broken words make up the book, fall of the page. I’m hating myself more every day. All those promises are of course never made, it’s burning in my brain. You pull me in close but yet I’m still cold, it hurts inside, I want to fight but I just hide. We always would hold longer than we know, not realizing the lies. It feels so good having my own judgements, making my own decisions. It feels so nice going out with a bang, not gonna boomerang this time around and back to hesitation, manipulation, that’s how it always works. Saw the truth for myself and you better bet I was gone, long gone, no more holding back. It feels so good having my own judgements, making my own decisions. It feels so nice going out with a bang, not gonna boomerang this time around and back to you.
Track Name: Viridescent (Ataraxia VIP)
(featuring Ink Sparks on vocals)
I remember gazing up at the light above the see, seeing everything we’ve done come back to me. Yet tinges of the past colour endless strands in rings, visions of an endless life where our love can grow and sing. I’ve seen the brightest light, I’ve seen the greenest leaves, and every night I wish upon the stars beyond the eaves. Who are we to know? Who are we to care? I remember spheres of air coalescing on command. I could see the stars fall at my feet though held them in my hands. Yet through the empty void I clung to the unknown, flashes of a memory from a mind I didn’t own. I’ve seen my people die, I’ve heard my people weep, and every night I cry alone wondering how you can sleep.
