Music is beautiful, and that's the statement that brought The Candlepark Stars to life.
My name is Kerry Muzzey and I'm primarily a film and classical composer. Back in the late 2000's I discovered the post-rock genre and it turned my world on end. Bands like Explosions in the Sky and Godspeed You Black Emperor were creating these incredibly emotional works of musical art using electric guitars as the foundation instead of a piano or an orchestra. The word "Cinematic" has become very over-used these days, but it was the only word I could use to describe what that genre felt like: its raw emotion was a punch in the gut. It conjured up so many visuals in my mind, like a flood. For months I listened to nothing else but post-rock, following iTunes' "Listeners who liked this also liked this" recommendations to do some discovery. I fell so in love with the genre as a whole that I thought, "I need to write something like this."
Flash forward to today, and several albums later, and I continue to write under this pseudonym whenever I need a creative outlet that's different from my usual work. It all feels a bit like a filmscore. I have 2 rules for The Candlepark Stars to which I continue to adhere:
1) I only write it when I really feel like it because I don't want to release an inferior album and 2) only joy, no darkness.
Because music is beautiful.
