A complete, separate sentence begins the journey of a conceptual album. In the translucent sonority, something percussive, and in the melody undulating towards repose, the inspiration of the work is manifested. It is water; in itself, in its role for life to thrive, in its subjection to those who have it. Moments later, on Life Cycles, H2O's opening track, melody and harmony come together. The anticipation that precedes them highlights how symbolic, and crucial, the passage is. In it, patterns begin to emerge, intertwine and recur. The rhythm flourishes, broadly speaking, from the oscillations at the core of the note to what exceeds the bar. These are the cycles of music, a metaphor for the cycles that depend on water, those of life.
