KaBoni Bailey Capstone

The world would go crazy without music, and would become a centerfold of straightjackets. My love for music is unkempt, being as though it's gotten me through a majority of harsh times and has never failed to leave my side. For my Capstone, I decided to give back to music by making it (Also showing the early process's of my production career). Through this process, since November of 2014, I've had a flirtatious relationship with music production, giving it attention on-and-off depending on what it looked like to me that day; resulting in many unfinished (Drafted) projects, and time well spent. Throughout this Generic EP, I wanted to regurgitate what i've been fed in my life, on no set scale. Any artistry passes on the aura of it's owner, and I wish to portray myself as best as possible given the time being.

Mixing and mastering is an essential when It comes to music production. The fine tuning and quality of music is based off of the engeneers (for the most part), mixing and mastering skills. This tool usually takes a good deal of time to spring about proficiently, and knowing that I've taken it upon myself to learn, and at the least, comprehend the main circuits of Mixing and Mastering. 

"You only go as far as you know" Taking knowledge and all possible options of realization into consideration, this site was epic in the formation of my perception as time elapsed. We are what we eat, as they say, and that goes for brain food as well, and everything transfixed on altering my timeline, will affect my musics timeline, as it has with every artist before me. 

I grew myself up on hip hop. Boom bap to be specific, and knowing/understanding the roots to the music that shaped me and my generation (and the one before us) has a large deal to do with wanting to know myself as a whole. I do not know the whole picture of myself, and that viewpoint is not mine to get, so I accept that, but nothing plays too far from it's roots, no matter the differences. 

One of the future (sooner than later) goals is to create a studio in the basement I room in. An in-house studio, a but good quality in-house studio. This musical feed is an escape... a route.... a way out of the past tense and into a better future for my unborn. This website aided me in converting my thoughts to more concreted beliefs, and a better realization of what steps I wanted to take first.
