A piece I wrote recently inspired greatly by the current events of life so far. Enjoy
The first of three acts:
This next piece titled Illuminations was written in accordance to the act of balance. Inspired by The Chaos Theory, it was written to represent the balance between Structure & Chaos, Sound & Silence, Freedom & Restriction. The score consists of a set of rules, a written piano score and 4 sheets of graphic notation each divided into 6 distinct blocks. Each block contains different drawings/lines/characters as well as specific dynamic markings. Performers are free to interpret what they see within each block and shift to the next block when cued. The main aspect I control in this piece is the linearity of time as I decide when performers change from one block to the next. Enjoy
A piece to celebrate the departure of 2012, the best year of my life.
It has been an incredible journey both musically and physically. I am not able to pen it down in words but I hope this piece is a perfect depiction of how I feel. I thank every single one of you who has been part of my life during this great year and I hope 2013 holds an even better journey.
Here is a new sound/text piece featuring dialogue from my favourite movie of all time There Will Be Blood by Paul Thomas Anderson. The piece goes for about 11 minutes and is divided into two parts. If you haven’t caught the movie then please do. It features an excellent score by Johnny Greenwood and the great Daniel Day Lewis as the protagonist.
This piece is a tribute to one of the greatest movies of the 21st century. And of course, to oil.
Here’s a video to go with the piece
Hi everyone, here I am seated by my computer in the wee hours of the morning realizing that it’s officially the start of the winter holidays. This marks the beginning of my undisturbed journey into self-indulgent exploration of the fertility and birth of new sporadic, aberrant sound. To get things rolling, I’ve recently finished the last piece for my composition class in school and teamed up with a bunch of familiar faces back home who helped make a video to the piece. This song is a follow up to one of the first few pieces I ever composed titled ’Yun And His Friends’, watch and hear that piece at the end of this post. In the meantime, I’m proud to reveal both the finished piece and video titled ‘ Heart In Montreal’.
And the piece
I was also reminded of some other videos that Jon and I collaborated on like,
‘The Simplest Things Are Often The Truest’
And not forgetting the piece I composed to go along Caleb’s showreel last year,
‘Rules Of Lettrism’
I have been deeply honored to have embarked on these projects and I believe this is only the beginning of an endless journey. I look forward to producing much better work in future and hope to meet other like-minded individuals who wish to collaborate. Many thanks again to Jon, Derrick, Caleb and everyone else who helped shape and produce ‘Heart In Montreal’, appreciate all your hard work and effort. As mentioned earlier, I’ll end the post off with one of the first pieces I ever composed, ‘Yun And His Friends’.
I haven’t been here for awhile and that’s because I’ve been busy with countless compositions and assignments for school. During this time I’ve started a collective with one of my friends and we’re known as The Concerted Collective, based here in Melbourne. It is basically set up as an art collective focused mainly on sound and visuals in a live setting. Please show your support and love by visiting our facebook page, more information there as well. We’ll be playing our first show this Friday on the 25th and if any of you guys are in Melbourne then please head down and show us your support.
The winter holidays are coming up and after having a chat with my dear friend Poon, I have decided to prepare and release my first musical collage sometime by July before the school term starts. It’ll be available in both a physical copy as well as a digital download. Shan’t reveal too much about what’s going to be inside but it’ll be different I assure you. Meanwhile please visit my Soundcloud page as I’ll be uploading the compositions I did for school as well as my Vimeo page.
I’m not sure what happened to the Autism video which was up on Youtube for awhile but it’s been removed. I think it’s because they want to put it in the main website or something. Either way I’ve uploaded a new a piece which was the 3rd draft I made for the austism video. It wasn’t the one in the final cut as the client wanted something more upbeat and catchy. However, I like this draft the most. It’s a simple track but it directs my emotions in more ways than one and works as a stand alone piece. Anyway it’s titled Hikari Ōe, named after the autistic Japanese composer.
