Music is the language of souls embedded in the reality of sound, but at CUSA it is the soul that has priority, not the construction of the world. That’s why CUSA music works follow these rules:
- Content over form – usually melody cover content (imposes an interpretation of content), so it should be kept to a minimum.
- Aesthetic shock – the human soul is by nature mean because it is far from God, which is why the honest ugliness of the works is recommended.
- Story – music as a language, it is supposed to tell the story of the soul (sin or suffering) or the angels taking care of the soul.
