Crazy moves T. Patrick Carrabré squarely into the new world of indie classical. Pulling together influences from post-modernism and alternative music, the five-song cycle Crazy runs the gamut from lyrical beauty to driving dance beats. Following Pat’s two-year stint as the weekend host of CBC Radio 2’s The Signal, his music evolved beyond the dark intensity of his post-romantic symphonic works to embrace more fluid melodies and a warmer harmonic pallet. His use of electronics also allows for a grittier sound. Pat explores the edges of beauty in these songs—that place where darkness meets light and inspiration can lead to obsession.
