"BANNED": Montage II is about animal rights. Still, the sections about animals are juxtaposed against other ideas, which creates complexity. The first version of its video was basically "Earthlings to music"... I want it to be a voice for the voiceless, but I want it to transcend boundaries, which means I don't want a "sensitive content" block on IG and YouTube, or a large % to turn off the video, unfollow or block me within 5 seconds. A part of me wants musicians to hear it for the craft, for the developing variation of themes, the drama and introversion, the light and shade, the brutal transitions, the beauty. I want everyone to hear it as an evolution of my musicianship. Even an issue as big as animal rights is only a part of my philosophy I present in the New Style.
But it is an animal rights piece...
Animals go to the slaughterhouse in it. I survey man's brutality in it. The words "Make them free" and "the evil" loop starkly.
So, to me the solution is multiple videos, linking to one another. This will take more time, for a piece that is already 6 months old. But I must do it justice, so it is what it is. See you at the march Aug 25th. I'm in the Make Them Free shirt with @thecompassionatelifestyle
