I Hate It Here: A Multi-dimensional Album
This project aims to incorporate collaboration, multi-genre experimentation, and live performance into the final production of an LP to be delivered to Kro Records in Los Angeles, CA in 2021. The LP consists of ten tracks with pre-production starting during a six-month quarantine at the onset of Covid-19 in March of 2020. The goals for this project include: a) incorporating remote and non-remote collaboration among different musicians and styles; b) developing multi-genre representation across ten tracks; c) forming a group in Valencia, Spain to perform and record a “Live from Valencia” version of the LP; d) employing both professional and DIY techniques, and; e) delivering the LP and performance to Kro Records with audiovisuals and electronic remixes. Central to the purview of this project is the overcoming of isolation and separation in order to produce a unique LP that thematically explores these obstacles within the turmoil of 2020.
