Each track on “Virtual Reality Reality” uses the midi guitar (without following the DAW’s grid) as the primary tool to organically record and layer a rich dialogue of melodies and textures.
The effect is rather orchestrally dystopian where there is a diverse array of musical influences from experimental electronic, jazz, tango, 1920’s silent film scores, 4th world music and more. Some artists that inspire and influence my music are Astor Piazzolla, Jan Jelinek, Jackazek, Jon Hassel Murcof and various film scores.
The listener of the album V.R.R. will find themselves entering into a juxtaposition of feelings under an architecture of melodies that orbit each other independently integrating and disintegrating. Each song feels like it inhabits both the past and the future, is both familiar and alien where one feels lost and found and also equally hopeful and sad.
