ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
My friend Guiseppe Gavazza has a wonderful understanding of my music and puts it into words that are very clear and concise, so I love it when he writes about my songs for my music promotion. This is what he has to say about Electric Marmalade:

At first glance the titles to Byron’s songs seem to be picked at random, because they need a title. You might think he could use a title like “Composition No. One” just as easily, but as I listen to the songs they begin to reveal that they do have a relevance to the song, that they reveal some character which the tune contains.
For instance Listen to Cassandra; when I listen to this song I realize that's a good name for it. I actually do see a woman when listening to this; not sure if because he named it this or not. It actually reminds me of the ghostly looking old photo of the woman he used in your artwork for your album Apparition. She’s the type of woman that seems pretty normal at first glance, but if you get to know here there are surprises. She is an enigma.
Byron told me that he thought about this woman after the name for the song just “popped” into his head, along with the words “use this title for the song”. My own thought is that her spirit snuck into the song thru the creative process. If she would communicate anything to the viewer I think it would be that she is 'deeper' than one might think; that there is more to her than meets the eye. I think that all of Byron’s music is like that, and the more you listen to it, the more is revealed.
Listen to Cassandra is nicely done and I love all of the character to this song. It has all these kind of static sounding instruments; an 'analog' sound for sure but one that I love. He uses a lot of sounds in all of his songs where you can hear the electricity pouring through the music.
The songs draws you in and you realize you’re getting pulled further and further into it and you start hearing the complexities and it's amazing. All of his work is this way. There are a lot of complex textures which play against and off of each other. It seems that all of these songs do what they are supposed to do in a classical, music theory structure since, but they do it in a very eccentric and not normal sort of way. I like to think of doing 'music theory' in an 'unconventional' way.
All of the songs on Electric Marmalade are complex and enjoyable. They keep the listener interested with the ever changing patterns going on. They have a perfect combination of rough and smooth tones.
The complexities of sounds and such are what make his music uniquely him and I love it.. I love that he isn’t afraid to be 'experimental', and we find out that most modern music was at one time experimental' too.

Guiseppe Gavazza

I titled this collection of songs Electric Marmalade, because it is my belief that everything we see, hear, taste, and feel is an impression, and that all impressions are food or nourishment for humans. There are good impressions, or food, and at the same time there are bad impressions. People who are completely surrounded by bad impressions, such as in a war, often become ill, such as with PTSD.
Creating good impression with my music and with my art is one of my goals. I pick voices for my compositions which are pleasing, and which also make me feel pleasant and happy, physically and emotionally. A lot of my listeners meditate to my music, and they say it both relaxes them and stimulates them at the same time. Some say it makes them happy.
The title Electric Marmalade is a reference to music, and all impressions, as being food.
