“MA”: Spatial Temporality, The Space Between Things: The Silence Between Two Notes in Music, the Distance Between Two Swords When Fighting.

About the album title… what is “MA”? Moffatt explained:

“I was reading this magazine with a special on Japan, and there was a photo report on ‘ma.’ It was talking about the definition of spatial temporality, the space between things: the silence between two notes in music, the distance between two swords when you’re fighting. This little emptiness the Japanese call ‘ma.’ And for me it was really significant and poetic to see time not only in terms of something really far and vast, but in the little contemplation of spaces between things. When I was alone writing in the studio and in a contemplative state of mind, the ‘ma’ spoke to me a lot. And it’s also my initials.”
