One of the characteristics of Boomer's music, that I exceedingly appreciate, is how in many cases, he attempts to provide a mood - an audio backdrop that may precede the musical body of the track, or may pop up somewhere along the way to provide an insight to the disposition of the subject matter. Self-interpretation, I feel, is the key to understanding some of the material. In "Divided Dream", for example, Boomer uses an audio track to lay down a strong feeling of tension. Buried deep in the background is the quiet drone of a television set.
In the immediate background, the voices of an angry man and an indifferent woman dominate over melancholy electro-string swells. To me, it seems that what we're hearing is through the ears of an observer, a child, perhaps, listening to his parents in the midst of yet another meaningless argument. Censorship is abandoned here, and rightfully so. How does one communicate a raw feeling by watching their words? A great deal of Boomer's music is dark - but by no means is it depressing.
Emotional? Yes, and to convey a feeling to your audience and have them react to your message is paramount to the composer - and a very good sign that you're doing something right. In contrast, Boomer also writes some great, laid-back trip hop that demonstrates excellent use of rhythm and audio tweaks. Boomer says: "I can't really pinpoint my style, its just something that has evolved over the years. I use anything I hear that I can sample and play with (television, AM-FM radio, people, things, etc.)."" - IndiSoundz Read more on Last.fm.
