I once made a couple of songs.
So to let you know, I’m intrigued by electronically produced music. I often listen to that kind of music. And yes, I do mean listen. But what I believe is more compelling is that this passion got me into creating soundscapes that in turn allowed me to master the classes “ethnomusicology”. Here’s the thing.
As I did not have any background in musical theory nor analysis, I had to find another way of understanding the whole thing. I tried to to understand the musical theory by producing “chains of noises”. I could count on a guy named “Wannes” and a piece of software known as “Fruity Loops”. Wannes mastered classical music theory and was quite into electronic music as well. Hum, to say the least. Wannes is a walking iTunes. But anyway, he explained me some key principIes about music and introduced me to FL.
The rest is history. I made soundscapes to understand the theory.
I enjoyed the struggle. And I made it through the course. Even got nice grades. Guess because I did something completely different compared to the musicology students. I made soundscapes and empowered them with ethnographic research on today’s “Goa culture” in Belgium. While other students choose to have a classic powerpoint presentation with an in-depth description of an exotic instrument, I produced pieces of “noise” and put on my raving shoes so to carefully document those parties and everything it surrounds.
No documentation about those rave parties here. If you want want info on that, I think you should go to a party.
But below however is the soundscape experience. Note that it should be looked at as one big journey. The entire soundscape is available on spreaker as an episode.
Oh! And No worries. For future endeavors, I’ll keep it to the writing part.
I once made a couple of paintings.
Maybe I want to put those (eum..) masterpieces online.
Check back soon.
