Tempered Glass: the first EP...
This is the first EP I have ever released, and was an exploration of my voice, literally and figuratively, and how it fits into the world around me. I used this EP, and it's exploration of different genres, to help find my sound which familiarizes itself with pop, vocal harmonies, and the blend of some acoustic instruments/voices and some digital instruments/voices. Where does acoustic become digital, digital become natural, and how do they live together, or not? Listen, to discover.
From not me:
Explore how different ideas make different sounds with Tempered Glass, an EP by Zak Kline, and dive into a world worth understanding.
A writer searches for their voice; with his first release, singer-songwriter Zak Kline combines voice and technique as tools on a search for his sound. Kline set out to write four songs in four genres, allowing him to explore what he liked creating best. "Start:" and ":End" bookend the EP, tying the whole piece together with a narrative, but the four songs, "Alone," "Broken Melody," "Days Like This," and "The Horizon," stand alone as individual ideas he explored through the EP's continuous narrative.
"Your sound is a reflection of who you are, but it is always changing, and your best pieces help you examine what that is," says Kline. "I discovered that the music I like writing best is a mix of pop and vocal harmonies, but my sound is always evolving."
