Hologram: the meaning is whatever you want it to be
“The message that is being created is one that needs to be decoded by oneself.” Duan de Jager (vocals, The Alpha Sequence)
Callan describes the band’s focus themes as being rather open-ended. However, some common threads tend to pop up within the lyrics; which are rather abstract at times. Ranging from demonic entities internally embedded as psychological faults within society, to the sorcery of one’s own mind and the search for enlightenment through identification of one’s dark nature; the band engages topics pertinent to young, intelligent minds, seeking to make sense of a chaotic world.
“To ‘be’ is to realize the constructed conformance of reality, and then to realize that we have made it.” Duan de Jager
Callan met a team member of Space Brother Productions whilst playing live along with Port Elizabeth band All We’ve Known; which also recorded with Space Brother Productions. Having originated from the Eastern Cape himself, it was not hard for Callan to win over his bandmates with the choice to go with Space Brother for the Hologram project.
“I had already heard previous albums that space brother had released and knew that this was going to be a good choice.” Callan Du Plessis (guitar, The Alpha Sequence)
