Complicated: An Exploration of the Bounds of Subjectivity
“Complicated” is a pop album produced with genre fluidity in mind. The album provides a window into the artist’s psyche, comprised of seven songs exploring concepts such as love, fantasy, identity and self-doubt. The ultimate goal of the album was the production, mix, and master of a pop album that retains a central and unquestionable identity, while also exploring a number of genres and influences. The album was composed and produced in Ableton, and then mixed and mastered using Pro Tools. The album will be released under Berklee label Disrupcion’s subsidiary imprint – TALA records. The biggest challenge in producing the album was attempting to create a web that centered the different music throughout the album, and allowed the songs to be reminiscent of one another, while also taking risks in the explorations of musical style.
