"I see the resilience of music in all things around us, regardless of an objects purpose. Music lives and breathes in all parts of our world, whether it is the rhythm of a turn signal or a multi-million dollar violin, music exists within it. I wrote this music using an economy of resources, totaling $50 excluding production gear. Especially in times of quarantine, I found myself to be reanalyzing the purpose of everything around me. Instead of asking what an instrument can do for me, I asked what can music do for these objects. This also led me to be resilient in my own compositional approach. In regards to the product, I can't be sure why it came out as a pseudo-electronic dance tune, I can only be sure of the intention behind the composition, and the resilience of myself and music in general."
