If a 'concept album' is a collection of tunes that have one continuous story...
Then the Instrumental Wisdom is a 'concept SONG' that has a whole album in one continuous tune.
In the era of the 15-second, shortest attention span possible, I decided to put my faith in the human imagination and do the exact opposite- record the longest song possible. Using zero samples, and having composed ALL background music, I aspired to create a "Bohemian Rhapsody" for today's generation.
To inspire intelligent creativity and get kids excited about playing instruments again, which is so beneficial to their mental health. And SO needed right now.
The Loneliest Minds of New Kind is a movement.
For the artistically fearless, rule-breaking, role models of hip, who are sick of repetitive hi-hats, disposable songs, and debased culture. To lead the way for the writing of revolutionary songs again. To make insanely ORIGINAL music and thought trendy again.
Do you want to live in a world where there will never be another Prince, Beatles, Bowie... because everything is incentivized to sound-alike, be synthesized, and now... AI generated???
There is also a full-length "Instrumental Wisdom" movie script that will forever change the way the world sees and hears INSTRUMENTS. Imagine 'Harry Potter' but instead of magic, it's a fantastical world of music. And instead of being voiced by familiar actors, it's voiced by iconic musicians. Call me, babe... we'll do lunch...
