GRAINS is recording project from Margaret Darling (The Seedy Seeds, solo artist) and Jason. The two locked themselves up in Margaret's closet and created soundscapes for a piece on the night sky. Combing through the hours of music, Jason combined segments, wrote new music and lyrics to form "How Stars Are Made".


are you a cloud of dust
full of matter great
yet too small to see with my eyes
are you burning from the inside out
surrounded by things
bigger than you and I

don't be afraid,
that's how stars are made

a hundred billion tiny mirrors
cradled close in the cold,
collapsing on themselves and becoming one.
and will we be just a cloud of dust
when you finally shine
but even if you're the only one

don't be afraid,
that's how stars are made


from near the lake, just after dark, released August 26, 2014
