Day 6 - Approximated DubstepDay 6: Make a piece of music in a style you’ve never made before.
I dunno. i tried to make dubstep for today's challenge, and i think i got the vague gist of it, but i don't think it's quite there yet :p
Day 5 - DeafDay 5: Make a piece of music without listening to what you’re doing until after you’ve finished.
This was quite fun, and also very terrifying. As of writing this, I still haven't listened to the track myself, so I have no idea how this turned out, i'll edit this after i've listened to it :D
EDIT: well, that went pretty well, i tried to go for a sort of lo-fi hip-hop beat, and barring a couple of little errors i didn't catch because i couldn't hear what i'd programmed in until after i'd finished, i'd say i pretty much did it!
Day 2 - Unfamiliar InstrumentHere is day 2 of my 30 day music making challenge! todays prompt was "Write a piece of music for an instrument (or with a VST) that you’re not really comfortable with."
I tried to do a thing for string quartet, and as you can see, i wasn't very good, but i tried, and i enjoyed making it, so!
The Things That We AreThis is a track that's been a long time coming... this track is about the representation of trans people within the mainstream media, and how they exploit us and our experiences/stories for their own personal gain.
its also another try at a more punk style, which i've only ever really done once before, with a song that ended up being unreleased.
hope you enjoy!
Dolly (Dolly Parton Tribute)hi guys, this is a track i've wanted to write for a while. It's the same song as Jolene by Dolly Parton, except it's written from Jolene's perspective, and saying how Jolene doesn't want Dolly Parton's man, she just wants Dolly Parton herself, a sentiment, i'm sure, we can all relate to, because, damn, Dolly Parton
Lost & Brave (ray toro cover by mojo)4 years ago yesterday we lost transgender activist Leelah Alcorn. she was 17. She killed herself, because of transphobic hate. This song was dedicated to her by Ray himself, as a tribute to her. Unfortunately, transgender people are still killing themselves every day due to transphobia, and society largely not accepting her. We need to change that, and we need to make sure Leelah's death was not in vain, and that she will be remembered, and that we can create a world that she would be proud of. Keep fighting the good fight, and Rest In Power Leelah <3
