Diminished chronicles a young, talented musician who must learn that failure and loss can be the catalysts that sparks our creativity and the foundation that anchors our magnum opus. Diminished in our modern vernacular means to make or become less. In regards to music, diminished is a particular chord which is not a commonly used because of its dissonant, unique sound. Ezra represents the diminished chord, a very unique individual who tends to be in the background, constantly overlooked and underrated. Ezra is content with his eldest brother being “the star” until life circumstances challenges him to augment his perception of his own talent and grow into the artist he is meant to be.
