When I was asking around, while I was busy creating sounds and composing what later on would become the mixed track "The Journey Continues", how people felt about 2017, the answer was mostly negative or very mixed up. It's on this mixed up feeling that "Sadness and Joy" was based. Sometimes we encounter or see very threatening events happening around us, which causes loss and sadness. On the other hand, there is that little sparkle of hope, a pleasure, the emergence of a dream. I have tried to translate these mixed emotions and feelings to sound which I captured in this track.
