"The goal with my new album, Chronicle, was to take the listener on a emotional journey that ebbs and flows, and to try and create a very panoramic / widescreen experience, both sonically and compositionally. Out of all the tracks on the record, 'The Spectacular Quiet' encapsulates this approach the best. It's a very cinematic song, relying heavily on strings and brass to carry it forward and upward as it keeps on building. While writing TSQ, I internally dreamt up short movies to compose along to, and this helped me get the song to where I wanted it to land. It's been such a treat to be able to work with incredibly talented filmmakers at WeTheConspirators in true collaboration, across country limits, and to see them visually mirror what I tried to bring across sonically. And it just looks spectacular..." says Christoffer Franzen, the braintrust behind Lights & Motion.
