WRECHE | All my dreams came true

To sing you must first open your mouth. You must have a pair of lungs, and a little knowledge of music. It is not necessary to have an accordion, or a guitar. The essential thing is to want to sing. This then is a song.

I am singing.

-Henry Miller

                                                                   

COVER FOR BANDCAMP AND SOUNDCLOUD.jpg
'All my dreams came true' attempts to give iridescence to, and expand the palette of the framework built in Wreche (self-titled). Drawing on classical musical structure and form, more specifically in terms of piano literature and the greater keyboard canon, the album introduces a broader emotional landscape, melding elements of black metal (in all of its meditative beauty and violence), with more exotic textures found outside the genre. The persistent influence of antithetical forms gives the music an elusivity - highly structured yet unhinged, angry yet bleeding, invigorated yet despondent -  a music becoming its own, casting novelty to the wind. The incorporation of synthesizers and prominent vocals in contrast to Wreche s/t allows the compositions greater freedom - to be arranged without the piano constantly assuming center stage - the result a larger depth of sound, never favoring technicality over emotion - draping color on the black and white scaffolding.
Wreche's second album, 'All my dreams came true' was written, performed, recorded, mixed and mastered by John Steven Morgan

“I do what the good lord tells me to do”

I put the sun on the earth

Not the other way around

“I do what the good lord tells me to do”

Parched 

And shattered in the moonlight.

Why is this happening?

Where are our wings?

The gray sky slivered with

Clipped birds crashing

Like silver bullets

In a sea of concrete

Good god

The sound at our feet

“The piano is taken over by a creature that has lost their vocal language and is desperate to communicate with us...like a possessed Thelonious Monk...It isn’t easy listening, I have to say, overall it is like Prokofiev played backwards during a thunderstorm”
