“The Long Weekend”: A Story of Artist Identity, Acoustic Instruments and Electronic Soundscapes
The purpose of my project is to explore my artist identity whilst also looking at how acoustic instruments are treated in electronic soundscapes, as well as how a story is told through music. Firstly, I analysed albums that looked at how electronic production aspects and storytelling come together to form a cohesive body of work. I also looked at how contemporary harmonies and techniques are used in different songs and used them as a starting point to create my own music. I then looked at how to utilise Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) in my own compositions. I took all of these processes into consideration and created 4 songs that contribute to a story of my own in a 6-song project titled “The Long Weekend”. I also included ideas of how I will disseminate the project to the general public. I hope this will serve as a basis for developing my artist identity further as I progress through my career.
