I don't typically listen to music without lyrics, mostly because I can be kind of generic in music tastes, but I'm constantly fighting against that, because I know there's much more out there than what's played on the radio.
This artist Dugo's work sounds so beautifully complicated to me, like I picture him not being able to sleep as this plays in his head, and he knows he MUST create this masterpiece. So, it doesn't surprise me that this work of musical art was ten years in the making. It sounds like so much thought, detail and excuse me for being cheesy, love went into this creation.
There are no words, no gripping love lyrics, no painful stories about goodbyes-- but it doesn't need it. And to be honest with you, that is something I never thought I would say, but I truly mean it.
This music, although different from what I normally listen to, feels like what I have been missing. Music that plays softly while I write, or the uptempo background to my workout, or when I need to pensively think in silence, but also want to feel like this is a sequence in a movie about my life, so I put this on for background music to show the intensity of my thinking.
The freedom of this kind of music lets you decide what it means to you. Now, I understand why my best friend insists on choreographing her ballet dances to non-lyrical music.
If the songs sound familiar to you, then you might be a gamer, because apparently, this music has been featured in video games, which seems cool and honestly appropriate.
The sound is electronic and vibey, it's unique, but somehow familiar. It's the kind of music that makes you think about how amazingly talented some people are in this world.
Give Dugo's new full- length CD, Lingua Franca, a listen, if you want to be amazed or feel like your in the world's coolest elevator.
