Miles Shenk Capstone

“Bonded” is an 8 track ambient and experimental instrumental album meant to ask the question “What does it mean to make something that is truly of yourself? What does it look like?” This album was made for many reasons. From reflecting on the themes of true expression during the time of contemporary uniformity, captivating the different parts of myself and how I’ve grown and changed, and being a milestone in my music making career. This album will be the first cohesive project recorded and presented to my peers, it will also be my first album recorded on a physical medium (cassette). Recorded over the majority of the school year, This wasn’t a one-man show. With the help of my classmate Valeria Escobar on drums and my mentor Mr. Clapper to keep me on track, this album wouldn’t be in the place it is now.
