Marc Straight Releases Debut Album ‘Beauty in Transience’ As Brilliant Personal Challenge

For a lot of artists hellbent on making a career in music, a debut album signifies a cornerstone moment in their career. Many have leapfrogged the old paradigm of creation and touring, opting for hit singles and club shows, while some take their time and focus on a cohesive body of work before hitting the road. Then, there’s Marc Straight, who already has a flourishing career as a video game dev and sound designer, and chose to work on his debut album for the last four years as a personal challenge to himself.

Four years is a long time for anything, but creating over these past four years, in particular, was particularly challenging. A global pandemic and plenty of personal trials and tribulations caused the album to undergo many changes, even in just the last few months before release.

Beauty in Transience, the title of the album, as well as the song titles, are clear nods to the emotions Marc has felt before, during, and perhaps even after production. ‘Morii,’ especially, has the meaning of the “desire to capture a fleeting experience. A bit like envisioning your life and wanting to press ‘pause’ to stop and feel more comfortable and rest in a world that is stuck on ‘play.'”

With his passion for melodic dubstep, Marc is able to convey complex emotions in a delicate yet powerful way that should have many listeners deeply connecting with his melodies and writing.

Marc Straight’s debut album, Beauty in Transience, is out now — listen below.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
