This year, I was introduced to the concept of producing music video by my teacher Mr.McCready. My first attempt was the film "Marathon of Fright". Mr. McCready challenged us to create something that was not harmonically predictable with no definite chord sequence. We were also supposed to use the plug in "Structure" as our main sound. In this plug in, there is an awesome Melotron sampler, oh, the irony. I used this project to experiment with new and different intervalic relationships that I hadn't really used in traditional music. In the second piece, Aqua, I composed a piece that I can't quite put a genre to. In this film, the video is used to accent the music, giving the listener something to look at. For this reason, I had practically a blank slate to work with, and I drew inspiration from what I was listening to. At that specific period in time, I was listening to D'Angelo a lot, and I was particularly inspired by the song "Alright" off of his 1995 album "Brown Sugar".
This video was originally created by Dan Goldman; however, Mr.McCready removed the audio and allowed us to create our own soundtrack to the video. What fascinated me most about this project was how the video seems to look different/is received differently based on the music. To hear the properly mixed audio, go to my solo page. It is titled "Aquaright". Unfortunately, Weebly alters the mix of songs uploaded when they're uploaded in video.
