Sketches

by Intramentalist

Music architectures, aural mathematics, electronica that aims to pull you in, builds a house of sound around you, invites you to put your feet up, and listen. It is at times jazzy, unnerving, magical, expansive, angry, empty, and hopeful.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
First of all, thank you for coming here to listen. Please do. I want you to listen. I want to actively engage you.

This album uses many different instruments - strings, woodwinds, piano, some brass, bass and percussion. Each piece is meant to stand on its own yet the order of pieces has been carefully constructed to lead the listener through an evolution of composition, a journey of feeling, the ups and downs carefully choreographed to provide a path through all parts of this ever changing forest. While I didn't put the pieces strictly in the order I wrote them, I felt that putting the earliest ones in the middle provided a buffer between the onslaught of the first four and the final release of the last three.

I call what I do "music architecture" because each piece is put together like a house or building. Even though the floors are a bit uneven, the walls not quite true, windows not exactly where one expects them, you, the listener, is invited in as a guest. Please stay as long as you wish. As a younger man I tended towards stories with sad or dark endings. At this stage of life I prefer something more positive, more realistic. One can spend time creating something lovely and fragile, only to crumple it up in the end, but if there is no hope, no chance of making it back again, then what is the point?

The artwork for the album consists of some sketches made back in my college days. They provide a canvas for exploration, a way for me personally to anchor myself back in the past while moving forward, thereby bringing it with me. They are not complete drawings, rather they are stitched together to create a whole. Much like the music. Sketches of swagger, fear, despair, magic, wonder, emptiness, joy, anger, and assimilation. A patchwork, an offering, a gift. For You.
