***Paper, the new EP, releases today on Bandcamp****

Paper’s idea was written in 2020; it’s tones, textures, and structure were written and performed in 2021. Both years produced samples that became a central part of the EP.

Paper represents a new direction for Travis Pope/Music Of 25 and it was a challenging project that evokes powerful and personal memories.

It only exists because the songwriter is surrounded by brave, supportive people and dedicated musicians that have taught him so much in the last three years.

This one was hard.

Music Of 25 releases “Ally” on 6/19/21

     Personal experiences from 2020 were the catalyst for "Paper", a five track EP that will be released later in 2021. "Ally" was the first song that was written for this new project and was influenced heavily by the Civil Rights Movement in the summer of 2020; specifically two marches the songwriter attended in Austin, Texas on 5/31/20 and 6/7/20.

     All the samples used on "Ally" were recorded on a camera and a cell phone during the marches, with one exception: the chorus features Austin Justice Coalition's own Chas Moore during a speech in September 2020 at Austin's City Hall. All the instrumentation was recorded using one full take to try and bolster the "live" feel and bounce of the marches."

Pre-Order "Paper" and receive bonus video and it's single "Ally" a day early*****************************

All proceeds made from pre-orders of "Paper" leading up to and during the release weekend (6/19/21) will be donated to the Austin Justice Coalition.


New Video “Shil”

“Shil” was a bonus track made by Travis Pope for his friend’s approaching wedding. It’s sounds were recorded during the “Home” recording sessions at 5th Street Studios by Evan Kleinecke and it’s visuals were created during the depths of the late March/April quarantine of 2020. It released on Friday June 5, 2020 and it’s music video debuts today on their one year anniversary.

Shil’s sounds were made by the Korg R3, the Roland TR-8, the Critter and Guitari Pocket Piano, a field recording from a creek in the Lost Maples State Natural Area, and a field recording of a beloved Jack Russel Terrier’s collar. The backdrop for the “Shil” music video is influenced by Ben Prisk, made with acrylic paint, and was an important outlet in itself during last Spring’s scramble. It currently resides in San Antonio, TX with the happy couple.

2020’s chaotic path opened a new awareness of the futility of trying to plan everything. People died, shows were cancelled, jobs were lost, bitterness grew, and relationships frayed. The emotives and energies frothing at the surface could not be seen by those gasping in it.

A summer of insight, a winter of defiance, and a New Year of battling assumptions and hunger have however thrown their buoys.

April 4, 2021 will be the next signal if their lessons were grasped.
