The word ‘Insignify’ is a portmanteau of two words:
(1) Signify: To symbolize something; to be an indication of
(2) Insignificance: Being unimportant; having no consequence
Insignify denotes the quest for purpose in the overarching meaninglessness of life. It is a concept album, told from a musician’s point of view, that deals with issues of existentialism, the significance of human life, narcissism, craving importance, insecurity and the search for reason. The protagonist of this story, Vincent, goes through the entire range of these emotions within the span of a single day. In Hindustani music, many ragas are associated with a particular time of day or night; for the compositions within this album, ragas specific to the time in the story are often used as departure points.
