Scatter in the Sky explores the concept of “guilty pleasure” within an active performance. I begin the piece with singing a “cheesy” pop song that I composed (both music and the lyrics), which draws on the concept of my guilty pleasures and exposes me as the one that makes it happen on stage. After this calm beginning but uncomfortable beginning, the piece transforms itself into a structured improvisation for drum-set and voice with processing. The piece is an exploration of my full musical identity that bridges between the simple, common music genres of POP with noise and complexity of classical contemporary academic music. Scatter in the Sky works for me as a kind of immersion therapy to cure myself of “guilt” of musical pleasures and arrive at full artistic freedom.
