The music was inspired by the beauty of the many shades of blue to be seen in the ocean around the Gold Coast and along the beaches of Queensland. The sun sparkles on the waters and the colours change with the motion of the waves and the weather of the day. The painting entitled "Sea of Consciousness" by Australian Artist Francie Griffin featured on the original cover was also a source of inspiration. Francieʼs words: "Sea of Consciousness represents the unity and harmony of the one mind. Every thought we have reverberates and has a ripple effect on all those around us."
