A Self-Produced Extended Play: A Magical Blend of Psymbient Electronic and Experimental Rock Music
The purpose of this project is to compose, record and produce an extended play (EP) of six songs influenced by psymbient electronic music and experimental art rock music that blends the earthy sound of analog world and digital ambient tones, inspired by some of the life changing experiences that motivated the author to leave his eight year corporate job to pursue his passion for music. The EP will musically reflect the authors struggle with depression and anxiety during the transition phase and how he overcame it. On some of the songs the author aims to use a different approach where he composes the instrumentation completely and get his collaborators to write and compose vocals over it. Coming from a rock and metal music background, the author aims to improve his skills in the production of electronic music, analog synthesis , sound design, hybrid recording and stereo mixing with this creative project and aims to find his artist identity through the process.
