Words to You
BY LUCAS MORIN
LUCAS MORIN is in the beginning stages of musical self-discovery, still learning, questioning, and breaking rules. He recently received his Bachelor’s Degree in Music Composition from California Institute of the Arts, where he spent a majority of his time testing the boundaries of various schools of thought in music.
Lucas believes first and foremost in the cathartic power of music. He finds life in broken hearts and disappointment. The interesting part is not the act of breaking something or being broken, but the feelings of disappointment. Lucas is interested in how we think about these concepts, how we deal with them. How do we deal with that need for catharsis? Lucas’ collection I’m in Your Head (of which “Words to You” is part) experiments with catharsis and communication of feelings, using voice as the basic material for each composition.
Lucas’ latest work, Steal This Art, is driven by the sociological and philosophical consequences of musical classification and the institutionalization (or canonization) of schools of musical thought. The music incorporated numerous schools of thought, styles, and genres, in order to blur generic boundaries and question individual and institutional generic hierarchies. Learn more here.
