This culminating experience project (The Christening) is intended to be a 4-song extended play exploring the fusion of modern lo-fi boombap with Neo-Soul influences, Peruvian and Spanish hip hop grooves while honing on the new tools and knowledge to improve the final result. It is meant to be produced mainly by Nicolas Newton in collaboration with other music producers and artists from the Berklee Valencia Campus. It is also meant to be produced in the box by taking advantage of Ableton Live 11's tools to have the project be both songs and ready to perform live sets. The extended play will be performed live aided by automated effects done with Ableton Live 11 to make the transitions seamless while keeping the listeners attention throughout every piece. The songs will be played using automated effects on the vocals which will be prepared in advance inside Ableton so that they will be performed live over the instrumental tracks.
