the science of song

it's like a nest. each piece fits together, cradling the user.

the scraps are not felt as individual pieces. the cracks and connections are smooth and fluid.

those scraps-- drums, bass, guitar, vocals-- are felt by the listener as a living (moving, evolving) entity they comprise.

listen closer.
to find complexity.
individual movements that help to create the song.

like seeing an organism, but then looking under a microscope to find millions of individual molecules moving differently, yet contributing to a collective, cohesive overall being.
