What is Cognitive Dissonance ?
Is it “… a mental conflict when beliefs in assumptions are contradicted by new information … an anxiety resulting from simultaneously holding incompatible attitudes … a condition of conflict or anxiety resulting from inconsistency between one’s beliefs and one’s actions …”?
Well, yes it is. But it’s also … a musical partnership between two guys in the technology industry, both former semi-professional musicians, who’ve teamed up to explore the unique interaction between piano and vibraphone first pioneered by Chick Corea and Gary Burton (although we’d never claim that level of virtuosity).
Cognitive Dissonance is a mad project; a musical folly. A project conducted across the vast Atlantic Ocean. A project that suits its name. A project to stir the sleep of the phantasmagorical beast.
It's also a project with its first release; our 12-track CD - "Mine's A Double" is available and you can listen to sample tracks at:
