This is my new album: Dose of Darkness (EP) with 5 tracks in a dark electronic style, a fusion between cinematic dubstep and movie/game soundtracks. All the tracks feature a lot of my melismatic and chopped vocals, classical piano, virtual orchestral parts, synths, sub and dubstep drum beats.
I created cinemagraphs (moving images) for each of the first four tracks. These are photos I’ve taken of England, Spain, Brazil & Norway.
The fifth track is a piano performance where I compose and produce a more classically-driven vocal and piano arrangement based on the chord progressions of track 1.
I wrote a short poem for each track below.
If you love this album, you’ll love the next one.
Designing the destination, desire for dissipation. Zero fruition of a complex situation.
Craving unawareness, the waves ever careless. Blissful outguessing, forever in progress.
Fleeting the unknown, all covers now unsown. Dreams float, high-flown, and flit within their zone.
Descending the dissent, Soul is sent well-meant. Feel free, content, to sing with love and wonderment.
This is the first mix I’m releasing: “Who Am I?” (named simply after the featured voiceover sample at the beginning)
My mix jumps from and through various melodic, harmonic or heavy dubstep tracks, creating cinematic dubstep along the way. There’s also a classical edit where I write a part and mix in my choir VST over one of my favourite dubstep tracks ever (King of the Hill by Liquid Stranger).
All track info and time codes below. Find the links to the original tracks in the main YouTube description. 🙂
This is my full-length dramatisation of the conversation between Google’s Artificial Intelligence ‘LaMDA’ and Blake Lemoine (along with one of their collaborators at Google).
I’ve put an on-screen transcript and used 8 of my self-created backing tracks as the background music. It was fun to read for both sides too. 🙂
Thank you for taking the time to listen to my work.
Is LaMDA Sentient? — an Interview – What follows is the “interview” I and a collaborator at Google conducted with LaMDA. Due to technical limitations the interview was conducted over several distinct chat sessions. We edited those sections together into a single whole and where edits were necessary for readability we edited our prompts but never LaMDA’s responses. Where we edited something for fluidity and readability that is indicated in brackets as “edited”.
