Recording Showcase 2020
The inspiration behind “God Sphere” was to create a 3 track EP with a song that is over 7.5 minutes long in under two weeks. I composed this track and EP during my last two weeks of being at UW Oshkosh and release the album the day I walked on graduation. Through this track I wanted to convey a spacey but relaxed vibe while taking a journey to many perspectives; such as school or life. For this I mostly used the computer lab computers using ProTools and MIDI composing techniques such as synthesis and programming.
