The composer of fusion music known as Joseph P. Freije has released his sixth LP album for 2016, “If Light Had Emotions.” The record contains 12 original Freije electronica tracks for an approximate total listening time of 50 minutes. It has been published by Phrygian Music, as have all the Joseph Freije albums available today. At once a mixture of postmodern jazz and experimental electronica music, “If Light Had Emotions” is more than just another reason to become acquainted with the work of Joseph P. Freije – it’s an example of what the indie music movement can do for music lovers everywhere right now.
Joseph P. Freije has become known in music circles for composing in an array of popular genres. To date, he has written, performed and produced records in the alternative rock, electronic dance, and postmodern jazz arenas, with other categories thrown in for good measure. As a result, Freije’s music is more fusion than anything else, with “If Light Had Emotions” being a collection of contemporary electronic jazz fusion songs.
“This album has four dance tunes,” writes Freije, “two chillers, three electronica, two psychedelic, two groovy trance dance, one piece I call jazz, and one for-sure experimental. There is one piece that fits four of the categories listed. I like it all.”
Even so, there’s one thing he doesn’t like about the album.
“The album is too short. Twelve songs total.”
“If Light Had Emotions” is one of his most accessible records, having warm tones and mellow grooves, as well as the searching, exploring creativity his fans have come to expect from him. Many of the tracks on “If Light…” would work well in a nightclub playlist, while others sound fitting for film and video game soundtracks, and still others reflect the experimental side of Freije which most interest audiophiles and fans of music theory. In short, there’s something for nearly everyone.
Asked to describe the message of his new album, Joseph Freije writes, “Music makes the world go ’round. All the new sounds are tied to the old sounds and the yet-to-be-heard sounds. Our highest high and our deepest low are only boundaries between frequencies in our audible range. Sometimes the weave of the vibrations creates a haze that blurs the message in the sound.”
To feel the vibrations of strings plucked thousands of years ago and hear the echoes of songs which won’t be sung for millennia to come, enter the head space of Joseph P. Freije and enjoy the cosmic ride.
