Themes

Themes are obviously fundamental for most works of art. I don’t usually start a project thinking about a particular one because, if I did, I wouldn’t be surprised and excited to discover the endless possibilities of what I’m currently working on. Now, as I already wrote in another post, I’m recording my first album, which is called ‘Songs Of Fear And Agony’.

I thought it would be interesting to share some quotations/sounds/pictures concerning the themes that are part of my new songs.

I’d like to start with the simple definitions of the main ones.

According to the Cambridge Dictionary...

FEAR:

‘An unpleasant emotion or thought that you have when you are frightened or worried by something dangerous, painful, or bad that is happening or might happen.’

AGONY:

‘Extreme physical or mental pain or suffering.’

(I’m afraid it won’t be a joyful album.)

In the next few days, I’ll post some more engaging content. I’ll probably do the same for the second big project I’m working on. I’ll definitely start with the definition of ‘AGALMATOPHILIA’.

Thanks for reading!
