The Stuart Greenbaum sound has overt connections to jazz, pop and minimalism but goes beyond these important influences. I often conceive of music in terms of journeys, but I also believe that music should be appreciable as pure, abstract sound in time. Either way, my music aims to evoke an atmosphere apart from the routine of modern life.
I believe in the need to cultivate space in a world increasingly filled with commercialism, light and noise pollution and 24/7 thinking. At times, I think we lose a sense of wonderment at our earthly surrounds.
Therefore, when I write, I seek an experience in sound to take me beyond mundane imperatives.
