There’s a word that describes art that is meant to be painful or disturbing. I can’t remember the word, but an example of this would be the film “Funny Games“. Although brutally violent, most of the violence in the movie happens off screen, which the director intended to be the “trick” – not showing any violence while disturbing the viewer because of the amount of it.
Similarly, I intended for this tune to be a little more difficult of a listen. The tension manufactured by the dissonant chords is meant to be somewhat uncomfortable. The piano is one of the only consonant sounds in the mix.
Although I hope none of the music on this site evokes any kind of response similar to watching “Funny Games”, I hope you can appreciate this track”s significance in it’s own “ugliness”.
