In the last 6 months, I took on a new media challenge to see if I could move the user’s spirit. Not only am I trying to define emotion from the digital space, but also through sounds. Artificial Intelligence Machines can remember sounds using notes but not all users can remember or read notes. But they can hum a melody. So how can these variables connect? Through music! So I began writing music using the latest and most popular sounds and synths.
I have also discovered that VSTs (Virtual Studio Technology, a software interface that integrates software audio synthesizer and effect plugins with audio editors and recording systems) mostly have horrible UI. Imagine if their UI was more minimal and useful… how much great music is missing? How many talented musicians gave up making music because of this?
So with these reasons above, I have began a journey into creating music. Have a listen to my songs below. I hope you like them!
This is my 3rd song. Mellow and complicated beats with a very powerful ending. The story behind this is..well, basically foreplay. But a title as “foreplay” is so cliche so I changed it to “closer”. It’s supposed to go along where one person is trying to get closer to another person but doesn’t know how, until the end where the power of lovers come together and make…well, you know.
All synths, melodies, beats were handmade using my own sound equipment. Voices are loops. But everything else was originally design and arranged by me 🙂
This is my 1st song in an attempt to explore my creativeness on a new media. I think it did quite well for an original. I prefer originality and a sound never heard. But it does have that Chill-step, Ambient and relaxing feel. I guess it’s working quite well!
Carol of the Bells
This is my 2nd song which I arranged and designed. Basically covered for Mykola Leontovych’s “Carol of the Bells” using my own synths (no loops). I also added a melody at 1:40 into the song. This was released right before the Christmas holiday of 2017 and felt in the Christmas spirit 🙂
