Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli Shares ‘Together’ Single Benefiting Black Lives Matter
Known for his work with Big Gigantic and The Motet, “Together” marks Dominic Lalli’s debut solo single. The saxophonist, songwriter and producer detailed the synthesis of the song in a statement. Read it below:
I wrote this song a couple of months ago in the middle of the global pandemic. I woke up feeling every feeling— every emotion— and just wrote it, recorded it from my home and posted it up online. It was very in the moment. I wrote that I found comfort knowing that we were all in this together and that hopefully we’d all come out of it a little stronger and as better humans.
Now, today, as the global pandemic lingers, we find ourselves in the midst of what has quickly become the largest civil rights movement in history. This is a breakthrough moment for humanity. I feel a sense of togetherness now, more than ever, and if we keep pushing we know we will finally start to see real change where we need it most. We are uniting our voices, working together and we won’t back down. I am learning more everyday how I can be a better ally, friend and collaborator to the BIPOC (Black & Indigenous People of Color) who have inspired my music & my life.
I hope this piece of music can provide a sense of healing & love as the fight continues.
“Together” also arrived with an accompanying music video. Watch it below:
