Often Inside: The EP – Where Music Meets Innovation & Technology
The purpose of this project is to develop an Extended Play (EP) that blends traditional pop elements with contemporary production techniques and utilizes components of life’s environment to record audio samples into multiple songs. Both the musical and artistic direction are closely intertwined to provide a cohesive audio-visual experience that is comparable to that of a concept album. The audio recordings collected are layered with synthesizers in unusual yet intriguing ways in order to stimulate and provide the listener with an unexpected audio experience. Additionally, this project entails collaboration with different parties around the world. This project includes the participation of an American Singer named Lizzy Land, and photographer and visual artist named Valentin Folliet. Moreover, the visual components of the project heavily rely on inventive ways of using camera effects, color, and perspective to provide a finished product that invites the listener to discover the world that the music entails.
