about

Songs For Modern Stone Age is a project which aims to build soundscapes that connect to emotional states. This consists of a repertoire of songs, with unique characteristics. More important than originality is the authenticity.

The main instrument is the electric and acoustic guitar. In some songs effects pedals take a heavy weight, so almost be considered as a separate instrument. In other cases the naked guitar is the absolute protagonist.

Regard to composition and time, there is no formal concern with such elements. That is, there is much more emphasis on expressiveness. However, I use familiar harmonic progressions and basically work in the chromatic scale. In short, the importance of "how" is greater than "content", being aware that without building elements, there are no songs.

I give great emphasis to the emotional aspect of the sounds. I worry especially by the presence of the random or unique. Events only as a note "wrong" or a silence where expecting something. Noises from the system itself analog playback and recording greatly. I am interested enough to investigate to what extent the "bug" brings authenticity, and therefore excitement to music. My perception is that what we connect with a song are just little nuances that make the sound perceived personally, creating surprise by not being within expectations.
