This project combines piano performance, electronic music production, and creative vocal editing techniques in the context of an EP. At times, the techniques involved in creating modern commercial hip-hop or electronic music can leave the overall product feeling somewhat canned or lifeless, or free of a level of humanity and personality. This production counteracts that by showcasing both the capability of electronic music production and DAWs such as Ableton to create unique and innovative sounds and textures, while also maintaining a very authentic and captivating human sound through the instrumental and vocal elements of the project.
