"This album is a collection of ideas that I find important within my own personal development. It is a journey to turn these ideas into songs and symbolic places, one that helps me to visit those ideas more often. I want to become a more active participant in my own growth, this album is a step in that direction" - DROELOE
'The Art of Change' is a highly personal journey through time & place, using a 'feedback loop' of recorded voice memos to past and future selves to plot out points on a multi-sensory map of life. Tape-recorded messages from young, old and AI-generated voices are interspersed throughout the music on the album, creating stopping places for DROELOE to pause and reflect at key points in time in his life. It's unequivocally DROELOE at his most vulnerable, fearlessly delving into the depths of his personal experiences and growing through them from heartfelt conversations and poignant journaling. With a keen eye for experimentation, DROELOE seamlessly creates sonic ear candy throughout each song, combining acoustic sounds with electronic textures, utilizing horns, synths, xylophones, guitars, even field recordings of things such as bike breaks, and other unconventional elements - creating. immersive sonic experiences that are as captivating as they are innovative.
