This audio project was a collaboration between the instrumental producer J.3K, artist Cal Carter and myself. This piece belongs to a larger Mixtape of mine. We completed this recording using an AKG Perception 420 Studio Condenser Microphone, recording in Pro Tools 10. For mixing plugins in Pro Tools we used compression, equalization, reverb, and pitch correction. My verse is in the beginning. The idea of this piece is to save your money, create a means of art, and create means of sustainability. The visual for this piece is from another one of my visual and audio pieces called “Locust”. The photo was treated with contrast, and color filters to give it the dark purple and pink treatment.
Campus Green is a collaborative music group myself and four others created in 2010. This particular collaboration is between myself, and the instrumental creator Alec Dacar. Here I used a Bluebird Cardioid Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone, recording to Logic Pro. The lyrics were then mixed using plugins of compression, equalization, DeEsser, pitch correction and delay, to give it a more textured and contemporary sound. The visual piece was a metaphor on the lyrics showing how sometimes you need to have faith, and trust yourself through taking shots in life. The video was captured with a camera phone for a “selfie” feel using multiple cross blurring transitions to help convey lyrical points. Color corrected for brightness, vibrance and saturation, using a cartoonism effect to give it a dreamlike feel in iMovie.
This audio project was a collaboration between Producer Rob Luna, Cal Carter and myself. The collaboration was managed through soundcloud, where the producer Rob Luna created the instrumental providing me to record lyrics over it. Cal Carter and I used an AKG Perception 420 Studio Condenser Microphone, recording in Pro Tools 10. For mixing plugins in Pro Tools we used compression, equalization, reverb, and pitch correction. The idea of this piece is to feel comfortable with yourself, and be confident in your own journey. This projects typography was also made in illustrator.
