The production of Mike Dacko’s Lightheaded started some 15 years ago. Back in those darker days, Mike used to listen to a lot of music, and he had a track from Jethro Tull rolling in his head called ‘Moths’ all about the moth being all sacrificial and sad. After pushing that idea around, he discarded the moth idea and turned his attention to the candle and the wax, and the idea of being cold at a distance and staying warm up close. The project stayed in his head, in concept stage for the longest time. He kept spinning story arcs around and creating scenarios that could be simply played out with the most basic forms. This was his aim. A deep story, in simple form.
