"Sonder" is the cost of chasing a dream.

I release "Sonder" at midnight on my one year anniversary in Los Angeles, CA – a year that has been so painfully transformative I'm not sure I can elucidate much greater than this song.

"Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root:

pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance; it means

to suffer." -Mark Danielewski

I wrote "Sonder" at rock bottom. The mental plight that accompanies the pursuit of passion can be as equally destructive as it is fulfilling.

An individual's purpose (and moreover, turmoil) is as unique as the genetic code from which it is extracted. As I pondered this, a sense of morose engulfed me. I will never fully understand anyone's motives, dreams, desires, reasoning – as they forever exist in a foreign realm.

This notion awoke a sense of self-awareness.

I am only myself. I am the keeper of my fortune. I have the power to respond to doubt, fear, rejection, and failure on my own accord.

So I did. As much as "Sonder" is about agonizing turbulence, its fruition reveals a light in the dark."

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
