Complex-simplicity is the design concept I use and appreciate in most parts of my life. In teaching, it means communicating difficult concepts in ways that are easy to understand. In conversations, it means not being verbose, but still speaking directly to the heart. In relationships, it means laid back without dramatics, but deep. And in design it means minimal, but considerate of all the details by effectively using space.
Of course, music making is no different. In music, it means being able to create using a simple song structure and set of lyrics, but being able to convey many meanings from the layers.
Making many messages, many angles appear converge into one... That's my focus.
