Bob Reynolds - ”Chrysalis” was born out of frustration. In the weeks leading up to recording Immigrance, I was trying to write a song to contribute. It wasn't going well. The day before leaving I still had nothing I liked.
In the same weeks all this "writing" was going on, my kids were tending to a butterfly garden in our backyard. If you've never seen one (I hadn't), it's incredible. You watch caterpillars become butterflies in the span of a couple of weeks.
But the most magical part of the transformation is invisible to the outside world. It occurs inside a hard skin called a chrysalis.
It seemed an appropriate metaphor for the experience of composing music. Lots of internal work the world never sees and at the end, if you're lucky, a song emerges. The contrasting sections and modulations in "Chrysalis" reminded me of that metamorphosis. My own as well as the butterflies.
P.S. We released our butterflies the same day I wrote the song.
