Underwater: a Singer-Songwriter EP with electronic elements
For this project, Brigitte developed her artistic voice and experimented with incorporating electronic elements into her original acoustic singer-songwriter music. She wanted to experiment with combining acoustic and electronic sounds since prior to her year at Berklee she had used almost exclusively utilized acoustic sounds. During the project, Brigitte experimented with different production approaches, striving to incorporate new techniques and software into her creative process. Some of the techniques she experimented with include adding MIDI, sound design and using Ableton Live as a compositional tool. By the end of this process she composed and recorded an EP. Brigitte wanted to experiment with combining these two genres because she appreciates when producers are able to combine a singer-songwriter style with an electronic production. Many times this is achieved through remixes or collaborations, but Brigitte wanted to experiment with doing this herself as part of the original composition.
