“Circus Sideshow (Parade de cirque) is the launch point that I’d like to present to listeners of Smithereens. I feel that it’s a well-defined example of the techniques and themes that I’m exploring in the project. WithSmithereens as an ode and journey into Neo-Impressionist divisionism/pointillism from a sonic angle, as well as Gestalt psychology as it pertains to visual art, I wanted to portray in the single a sense of fragmented wholeness. Polyrhythms that might initially be confusing; texture, ambiguous harmonies (Is it in key? Is it out of key?) that if listened to enough times start to really make sense, because as explained by Aristotle, “a whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”
