|In a sort-of follow-up to our recent podcast, Casey Crescenzo (The Dear Hunter) spoke with PropertyOfZack about his upcoming symphony project and more. |
Well, I thought it was sooner than it was, but I was told (and I forgot about this) when I was doing The Color Spectrum, I did a living room tour on my way out to start recording one of the EPs. At one of the acoustic shows, somebody asked me something and my response was, “I’d really love to do a symphony.” It’s always kicked around in my head, but I’ve always been aware of my ignorance. I always knew that, “Ok, now’s not the time. I don’t know enough now.” Finally, during the The Color Spectrum show that we played, I had to force myself – because I don’t know how to read music – I had to force myself to learn how to notate, arrange and orchestrate for people to just read. I couldn’t just sing people their parts anymore when I wanted something.
