"Rooster Illusion" 2018
"Rooster Illusion" is Dan Barracuda's sophomore effort. The album is an important step in his sonic journey, incorporating field recordings, progressive and experimental elements, and lyrical themes of identity, growth, pain, nature, and death. Consisting of 7 tracks, "Rooster Illusion" is a hauntingly powerful, jarring, and cinematic journey of dynamics, ambience, textures, and deep philosophical expression.
"Soliloquy" is Dan Barracuda's debut as a solo artist. These songs were conceived, tracked, and stitched together throughout the past 8 years. As a musician artist, Dan strives to make each piece different so that it lives in its own conceptual world, situated with its own unique colors, textures, and words that altogether bring the music to life. It is completely self-produced, recorded, and mixed in his home (with the exception of the drums). It explores reflection, ambition, retreat, optimism, and the constant pressure he feels to capture a moment of inspiration. As a debut, it represents Dan's first foray into sharing the thoughts and sounds in his head out there into the world.
