As someone who gravitates towards the mysterious, reading The Outlaw Ocean left me enthralled by this notion of the sea as this sort of “Wild West” and lawless landscape. After reading, I found myself so fascinated by the idea of the undiscovered things that the ocean has to offer that it compelled me to try to imagine what it might really be like.
This thought exercise then helped me chart a course when creating my tracks. I didn’t want to convey only one single emotion in my songs. Rather, I wanted it to be a complex experience that’s partially left up to the listener to interpret it for themselves. One of the incredible powers of instrumental music is how the lack of words allows for freedom to connect with anyone, regardless of native tongue or country of origin. Raw music and noise resonates with everyone differently, and that’s what I like most about it. I hope that my songs that I’ve contributed to this music project have an impact on people’s emotions and memories when it comes to how we view our oceans.
