Behind the Music
Great art to me grabs your attention. It alerts you to a message, providing a deeper insight on something you might not have been previously aware of. That’s why I think this project is so interesting — this blending of music and journalism. Ian’s journalism enlightens the public, giving them information that can inform their decision making as well as increase the public’s understanding of those who suffer most from the seas. I can’t imagine the self-discipline and strain it took for Ian to write The Outlaw Ocean and alert the public to these matters. I wanted to create incredibly layered songs in order to communicate the complex emotions of the book — so that as you listen, your awareness grows, just like when reading The Outlaw Ocean. I hope that my tracks contribute to heightening that empathy.
