The Sharp Shock’s debut album reflects all of the influences that the musicians in this group are exposed to. It is a fusion of jazz, classical, and rock elements. The frame of the entire work is constructed of a single melodic line which appears persistently in the form of a contrapuntal compositional technique called a canon. These continually transforming layers of the same melody both connect the pieces to each other and define changes in atmosphere, texture, and feeling through the work as a whole. The songs, on the other hand, are individual sculptures of our most intense and pure emotional reactions to life’s circumstances.
