Sitearm Madonna, of Dublin in SL fame, has created an excellent machinima using the track “Beast.” Hit play to check it out.
Here are some of my thoughts on the track adapted from a conversation with Sitearm:
There is a tendency to believe that calm is achieved via suppression of aggression. However, I find calm presents more by way of its understanding.
Though the music I write is often considered relaxing, there are numerous points where dissonance presents. I find part of the music’s ability to move a listener towards relaxation stems from aggression’s acknowledgment and sublimation as moments of dissonance.
