Behind the Music

I think this book encapsulates the true purpose of journalism: to capture and show the things we are not seeing. This is something that I think the mainstream media has lost sight of these days. In the never-ending barrage of information, we often forget about or ignore the things that need real attention. This book is a huge example of how reporting can bring things back to the forefront and make a spurring call for change.

While media and journalism work to unveil facts that otherwise go unnoticed, I think art is an expression of what someone is feeling. It’s a purely individual experience that might appeal to a whole group later, but begins with one person’s unique perspective and expression. For me, I tried to express both tranquility and insecurity with my contributions to The Outlaw Ocean Music Project.

The Journalism behind the Music

All music in this project is based on The Outlaw Ocean, a New York Times Best-Selling book by Ian Urbina that chronicles lawlessness at sea around the world. This reporting touches on a diversity of abuses ranging from illegal and overfishing, arms trafficking at sea, human slavery, gun running, intentional dumping, murder of stowaways, thievery of ships and other topics.
