about

Twelve richly textured tracks grace this third album by Fractal Love Jam, the husband and wife musical team of Martin Ball and Jessalynn Jones (album released on their 8th wedding anniversary!). For "Particles & Waves," FLJ pushes their unique style of electronic dance music with alternative, reggae, and world influences into new and increasingly beautiful musical territory, showcasing Jessalynn's vocal abilities and unique tone with layers of harmonies and soaring melodies, all backed by Martin's compelling and driven sense of musicality. Layers of keyboards and acoustic and electric guitars create complex tapestries of rhythm and sound paired with lyrics that reflect Martin and Jessalynn's commitment to inspiring their listeners with songs of love, truth, and the unitary nature of being. These songs are a celebration and call to self-awareness and personal transformation, embracing the reality that we are all one. Living with an open and loving heart is easy when you've got a great soundtrack such as this to keep you dancing and moving to the rhythms of life and love.

About the songs: The album starts off with the mysterious and powerful "Opalescent Concrescence," and then gets right to the heart of the matter with the uplifting and beautiful, "Only One," an anthem to nonduality and unitary being. With "Free," FLJ dives deep into dub and psychedelic EDM. "Mask of Forever" lets Jessalynn's vocals soar, followed by the comforting love song of "Beside You," an ode to being loved just as you are, effortlessly and naturally. With "Incandescence" the music shifts back into reggae/EDM/world fusion, an anthem of illumination and global transformation. "Embracing the Endless Sky" celebrates personal awakening and freedom with a cool electronic/alternative vibe with shimmering guitars and catchy melodies. "The Real Thing" gets to the love shared between Jessalynn and Martin, and "Doing the Work With Style" is a global call to setting attachment to past aside and moving into a responsible future collectively. "Embers" gets the beat pumping with a world fusion/EDM vibe. "Unbelievable" is an all-out celebratory dance number, wrapping up the fundamental message of the album. As a bonus, the instrumental orchestral track of "The Swelling of the Moon" rounds out FLJ's 3rd album in beauty and style.

Track Name: Opalescent Concrescence
Within my heart
There’s an impossible jewel
Radiating waves
From a fathomless pool
Within my sight
There’s an endless array
Opalescent lights
In graceful display

. . . within my heart

It seems so strange
I forget who I am
I forget my name
A luminous flame

The opals shine within my eyes
Articulating
My body opens wide
I will not turn from the light

. . . within my heart

I fix my gaze
Along the spine of the world
Boundaries dissolve
In the vortex’s swirls
For within my heart
There’s an impossible jewel
Radiating waves
From a fathomless pool
And in my sight
There’s an endless array
Opalescent lights
In graceful display

The opals shine within my eyes
Articulating
My body opens wide
I will not turn from the light
If this is my time to die
I will not fight
My body opens wide
I will not turn from the light
Track Name: Only One
Life is a game
So many characters on the stage
All playing their parts
Pieces on the board
All trapped in a prison
Of who they think they’re supposed to be
Everybody searching
For a truth that will set them free

There is only one
Breathing life into all that is
There is only one
Beating in every heart
There is only one
Nothing separate or apart
There is only one
The divine heart of this infinitely beautiful reality

So put your fears away
Live your life today
Trust this is the way
It’s all meant to be
Let go of all control
Relax into the flow
Let your heart be free
Open up your eyes
Let go of all the lies
Drop the veil of your best disguise
Be just who you are
You are a shooting star
A spiraling dance of light

There is only one . . .

Open up your eyes . . .

So put your fears away . . .
Track Name: Mask of Forever
It starts with choice
The unfolding of being
Setting the fractal gears
Into perpetual motion
Space and time
Life and death
All expressions of the ever-changing
The individual and many
The whole and the parts
Particles and waves
Numbers receding
Beyond the horizon
Circuitry of transformation
Birthing the real
In 3D form
Structures of the becoming
The algorithms of the eternal game
Shape the mask of forever
Parading through a hall of mirrors
An invitation to uncover . . .

Masks of forever
Entwined in a game
Of self and other
To which we attach our names
The divine invitation
To see who we truly are
Resides in our breath
And shines from every star

I can feel my heart
And all I’ve tried to keep in the dark
I can allow it to be
Unprotected, open and free

When we can truly see
The beauty of everything
In all that we love
And all we hate and fear
Then we will know
What lies beyond the mask of forever
I can feel my heart
And all I’ve tried to keep in the dark
I can allow it to be
Unprotected, open and free

I can feel my heart
And all I’ve tried to keep in the dark
Track Name: Beside You
To be right here beside you
There’s nothing else we need to do
To feel your breath and your skin
This is the life we’re living in

This is exactly where I want to be
Surrounded by those I love and who love me
Nothing to prove and no one to please
You be you, and I’ll be me
Accepting things as they are
Like the crescent moon or the shooting star
Even if I could, I wouldn’t change a thing
It’s perfect right here like the breath of Spring

To be right here beside you
There’s nothing else we need to do
To feel your breath and your skin
This is the life we’re living in

Falling into your arms again
Trusting that I’ll be safe when
I open my heart fully to you
There’s no holding back this time, it’s true

To be right here beside you
There’s nothing else we need to do
To feel your breath and your skin
This is the life we’re living in

This is the life we’re living in
This is the life we’re living in
Track Name: Incandescence
Plant a seed and start a fire
This Incandescence goes on and on
Break down the walls of all illusions
Illumination has come for all

In these times of mass confusion
We hold the tools of our evolution
Crystal keys that bring a revelation
So let the truth be told
The earth it has so many medications
To heal the heart and free the mind
Their magic lies in their molecular formation
A gift so divine

To open the heart drop the protections
Expose the façade of the incarceration
We are free as our birthright
To know the True Self
As Infinite Light

Plant a seed and start a fire
This Incandescence goes on and on
Break down the walls of all illusions
Illumination has come for all

We are free as our birthright
To know the True Self
As Infinite Light

All masks hide the One within
It is not other
It is a truth that’s ours to find and discover
So, plant a seed and start a fire
This Incandescence goes on and on
Break down the walls of all illusions
Illumination has come for all

We are free as our birthright
To know the True Self
As Infinite Light

Plant a seed and start a fire
This Incandescence goes on and on
Break down the walls of all illusions
Illumination has come for all
Track Name: Embracing the Endless Sky
I’ve held myself down for far too long
Afraid of what I’d say if I sang my own song
Doubting I could be true to the words in my heart
Finding the courage at last to simply start
Learning to love myself is the challenge of my life
Healing all of the wounds I’ve tried to hide
Letting go of the critic in my mind
Releasing all of the energies I’ve tried to bind

The time has come to open my wings
Leap from the edge and forget everything
Soar high above the earth far below
Embracing the endless sky
My feathers are light and my wings are strong
With the breath of love I am carried along
To find my true place and to sing my song

I’ll tell you a secret
Life is a mirror and all that we see
Comes from the same source
The illusion of you - the illusion of me
The world is a playground
Filled with wonders and tragedies
It’s The One Song that sings all into being

. . . embracing the endless sky

The time has come to open my wings . . .

I’ll tell you a secret . . .
Track Name: Doing the Work with Style
Let’s do the dirty work – with a smile
Let’s do the dirty work – doing the work with style
It’s time to dive right in, get it done
Let’s all clean up the place, and have some fun

The party started such a long time ago
And people had their fun, don’t you know
Dynasties rise, and empires fall
But life goes on and on, in the midst of it all
Religion and belief gave us identity
But we drank poison from the roots of that tree
We turned to war and hate to feed our fears
Look where it’s brought us after all these years
Now we’ve trashed the place, made such a mess
Let’s set our selves aside, and be our very best
Roll up our sleeves, and use our backs
Get Spaceship Earth spinning down the right tracks

It’s not the time to fortify the lines
Believe illusions that divide our minds
And keep us separate in these healing times
There’s too damn much work to do to remain blissfully blind
There’s just one planet that we’re living on
And every one of us has helped to spawn
The trials that we face in our society
Come together to create a new reality

So let’s take the holy books down from the shelf
Write a new story for our selves
No heaven and no hell to fear or crave
Now we’ve escaped from Plato’s cave

Let’s do the dirty work
Let’s do the dirty work

Let’s do the dirty work – with a smile
Let’s do the dirty work – doing the work with style
It’s time to dive right in, get it done
Let’s all clean up the place, and have some fun
Let’s do the dirty work – with a smile
Let’s do the dirty work – doing the work with style

Life goes on and on and on
Track Name: Embers
Chant along if you like:

Dance around the fire in the pale moon light
Dance around the fire with the embers burning bright
Dance around the fire, let your passions run
Dance around the fire till the coming of the sun
Track Name: Unbelievable
It’s so unbelievable
That’s how I feel when I’m with you
It’s so unbelievable
To know that love is the only truth

It’s so unbelievable
These are the days of love and truth
It’s so unbelievable

Once there was a time
I was lost, lost within my mind
Once I used to think
I deserved to be on the brink
But now that I have found
Love overflowing, flowing all around
I know that I can be
A force for love and reality
It’s up to each one of us
To trust in the process
Of shedding our skins
Open up to the light within
Embrace our lives and let it begin
Leave all our fears behind
Trust in the fact that this is the time
To claim our birthright as
Children of reality, fractals of infinity


It’s so unbelievable
It’s so unbelievable

It’s up to each one of us
To trust in the process
Of shedding our skins
Open up to the light within
Embrace our lives and let it begin
Leave all our fears behind
Trust in the fact that this is the time
To claim our birthright as
Children of reality, fractals of infinity

It’s so unbelievable
That’s how I feel when I’m with you
It’s so unbelievable
To know that love is the only truth
It’s so unbelievable
These are the days of love and truth
It’s so unbelievable
