Deep Thoughts continues the hyperreality of Dark Web, focusing on melody and harmony as established musical tropes utilized to elicit very specific emotional responses.
By pairing colorful use of harmony (sentimental, jovial, menacing, pensive) with general MIDI and other soundfonts that are traditionally thought of as the least expressive available,
I was hoping to highlight the harmonic and melodic ties to those emotional responses,
allowing them to become more clear than if played with more traditionally expressive sounds.
The compositions and timbres in Deep Thoughts compare deep history and past musical cannons against a more fragmented 21st century view of music as an aesthetic layer superimposed over our identities as a means of personal identity branding.
Furthermore the work focuses on what emotionality or catharsis looks like in modern music set in an American culture and economy.
