No13: The playlist inspired synesthetic visual album serving gender innovation
The no13 album aims to be a genre and gender bending project. The listener will get transported through different musical genres and styles, each related to texture, colors, through visual and musical aspects. While selecting a combination of choices, the audience will discover many aspects of one genderless character discovering life in a unique way. The process of producing this project started with the tree of possibilities, selecting the music universes that match the different energies that need to be in the project. Then, writing the stories and the tracks, organizing recordings and shootings, go through them. Then mixing, editing, and for the final part, finalizing all visual aspects (especially video effects) to look professional and make sense. It is actually an amazing challenge to be able to reunite all these passions into one big project. It feels necessary to address gender identity, feelings, sexuality, isolation in this album. This project will hopefully inspire many more into creating and developing characters that differs from the social norm, and mainly to think outside the box.
