Each track on “Virtual Reality Reality” uses the midi guitar (without
following the DAW’s grid) as the primary tool to organically record and
layer a rich dialogue of melodies and textures.
The effect is rather orchestrally dystopian where there is a diverse array
of musical influences from experimental electronic, jazz, tango, 1920’s
orchestral recordings, 4th world music and more.
The listener of the album V.R.R. will find themselves entering into a
juxtaposition of feelings under an architecture of melodies that orbit
each other independently integrating and disintegrating. Each song feels
like it inhabits both the past and the future, is both familiar and alien
where one feels lost and found and also equally hopeful and sad.
