The Storm 02:54
The dark horizon born anew Tonight again her shadows brew Coming nearer Her claw flashing jagged in the sky And we hold, we hold for morning She hammers angry on our door Our towers rattle in the roar Of her fury Our calls are drowned In the howling of the storm But we hold, we hold for morning For we know when the sun returns Weary we’ll wander Save what we can from what remains Hold through the angry night Hold for the morning light Hold to each other till the storm is gone What night will take again We will remake again Hold to each other till the rising sun The dark horizon born anew Yet more brutal work to do Stand firm ‘gainst the hurricane again We hold, we hold for morning We hold, we hold for morning We hold, we hold for morning We hold, we hold for morning

about

Every composer, and indeed every artist in general, faces constant rejection. In my case, the most common form of that is in writing demos or pitches in an effort to work on a given project, only to be told no. The reasons almost always have nothing to do with me specifically, yet it's tempting to take it personally. To equate rejection with failure.

As my career has gone on though, it dawned on me that rejections were actually a much better measure of opportunity. And looking back, I realized just how many opportunities I've had! It didn't matter that so many didn't work out.

100% of the music on this album was bound for the trash. Most of it is rejected pitches, but a few are also cues for cancelled projects and there's even some from projects I was fired from mid-way through.

In the end, I hope you enjoy it and that it's a reminder that rejection isn't defeat, but actually strangely fun and empowering.
