beanboi – Beans, Memes, & Laser Beams: The Creation of a Brand, an EP, & an Audio-Visual Performance
The overall goal for this project is to present an electronic music EP created from original sounds in the form of an audio-visual performance. The EP and performance, along with a website that includes a portfolio and sample packs, will reinforce the brand of the artist, “beanboi.” The sound design and music creation process strive to break common habits of mindless, improvised creation within a Digital Audio Workstation by providing limitations and an original concept. By incorporating unorthodox recording techniques, creative studio engineering, and reducing time spent solely in a DAW, this project aims to push the boundaries of sound design, sound recording, and sound manipulation. The EP will be performed live with synchronized visuals that match the style of music. This project will display advanced skills in engineering and sound design, provide new and interesting audio samples to artists and producers, and incorporate the production of an engaging performance.
