Opus Quest is the brainchild of Borin Doulos, and Assay’s debut EP. Borin wrote and recorded all of the music and lyrics out of a series of deeply personal questions that led him through a years-long, transformative dialogue with Jesus; hence the name, Opus Quest — a musical expression of his journey. Assay has a unique musical style, combining various genres and implementing a vast array of instrumentation. The music is very dynamic, often morphing with the context of the lyrics while venturing at times into key changes, unusual time signatures, and polyrhythms. “I think of music as an infinite potential of sequences to express a thought or emotion,” Borin says about his approach to songwriting for Assay, “not a series of boxes that I’m trying to fit into. This is really freeing when trying to write music out of a place of significant internal depths that may previously have remained unexamined.” Opus Quest echos this approach with intentional melodic hooks, emotional instrumentation, and complex drum patterns and guitar riffs. Some songs host a nearly typical alternative feel while not forsaking an explorative nature, and others progressively evolve with few to no repetitive segments. There are elements of electronic music used in Opus Quest, but it doesn’t take long to hear epic orchestral and cinematic scoring as well. Assay is only beginning with Opus Quest, and plans are in the works for upcoming music.
