About Contrast -

Waiting for cannons...

“Contrast” is an album that celebrates what I cherished so much about music when I was a kid. I loved listening to Tchaikovsky- and trust me, that’s not in a pretentious way; I was listening to the 1812 Overture, waiting for the cannons. I loved the beginning string section, the way the woodwinds joined- and I loved the furious passages between the slow sections. But as for the slow sections; I hated them. As my taste broadened, I noticed one thing remained the same from those days; I was always waiting for the cannons.

It’s the contrast that makes everything so worthwhile. It’s the vegetables before the dessert. You need it for the rest of it to matter, to make sense, to exist. I know a football coach who hated coaching one of his teams because they never lost a game. How could you know what a great feeling it is to win if you’ve never lost? It’s the same with music. Think of your favorite songs, orchestral pieces, anything; what do you like about them? I doubt you’d say the whole song. You’d probably say, ‘I like that part when…’

“Contrast” is about finding those moments. Not only within the song, but between each individual song. It’s admittedly schizophrenic- like a mix tape put together by throwing a bunch of CD’s in the air and just grabbing a track of each CD you catch. This music is not meant to only relax, or only excite; it’s just made to make you feel.
