Life is conflict in motion. Beneath all the layers & masks we are One. Paradox is full of musical surprises: consonance-dissonance, poly-rhythms, staccato-legato, masculine-feminine & sonic expectation vs reality. Based in the Indian Raga Kiravani this song is in a rare & challenging 18/8 time signature, exploring interesting cross-beat subdivisions of 18, 9, 6, 4.5 & 3. Inverted harmonies, mirror phrases & themes, creative combo of cultures, instruments & textures are the highlight. Yet, beneath all the layers, this song is enjoyable & groovy!
