Today I’m presenting you to the track Moonstruck by the Swedish composer Marcus Moon, now located in Canada. Marcus is a self-taught composer and gave up his career as as research scientist to perser his artistic ambitions.
The track Moonstruck was released as a single on the 1st of October, 2020 and will also be featured on the album Letters from the Moon, which will be out in December.
Tell us something about the track Moonstruck!
I consider myself a storyteller first and foremost. My music has no words, but instead I try to paint heartfelt imagery using simple harmonies and very direct melodies. Moonstruck is an excellent example of that. It tells the familiar story of finding love, only to lose it again. The harder you try to hold on, the more it seems to slip through your fingers. After a dramatic piano part that expresses the frustration of someone slipping away, the story comes to a close with final acceptance, and reflections on the sweet memories. It is sad, but at the core of it there is resilience and determination to move on.
Thank you for sharing this with us Marcus!
