Robots & Trees

by Johnny Snelgrove

This album is my attempt at marrying the organic sounds of the acoustic guitar and the human voice with electronics and synthesizers. The future of humanity must rely on technology working with nature—not against it.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Most of the lyrics address environmental problems. The possibility of living on a healthy planet in the future looks bleak, but that doesn't mean we cannot try. I have tried to express this optimism in the form of music. The melodies and overall nature of Robots & Trees is upbeat and jovial. I believe music to be a better medium than poetry for expressing optimism, so the lyrics are sarcastic and critical while the music is happy and playful. This juxtaposition is something I strive for in my worldview. We must be critical but not hopeless. Our minds must function clearly and rigidly, but our spirit must be free to explore and spread goodwill. This is what Robots & Trees is all about: a clear view on humanity and the environment placed inside the heart of a playful tune.
