The Moth and The Lightbulb

Dutcher Snedeker's avatar Dutcher Snedeker

This tune came together through improvised sessions with MOODS at Old NFP, the Death House, and at Speak EZ Lounge, three very different performance venues in Grand Rapids. The version that came together in the studio is strongly influenced by the pianist Tigran Hamasyan, who often combines elements of Armenian music, metal, and American jazz to create a distinct sound. The "moth" is the quieter moments in the music, mimicking a moth fluttering in the night sky. As it is drawn to the lightbulb, the music intensifies, until the point of impact occurs in a violent collision.
