The title of the record and much of its inspiration comes from the work of conceptual and performance artist Bas Jan Ader; a man who, in pursuit of his art, attempted a solo crossing of the Atlantic in a tiny vessel, to be forever lost at sea. His idea had been to find a way to express or recreate the idea of the sublime; an immeasurable level of emotion outwith the grasp of humans; an awe or terror so profound that it can only be induced by nature. On In Search of the Miraculous, Bevan mirrors this quest with that of one in search of hope and love, daring to reach for the unreachable.
