Assignment 0: Kaushik Ravikumar

Hi 🙂 I’m Kaushik, a senior computer science major. I played the guitar throughout high school, but not as much during college. One of my biggest passions has always been listening to music and towards the end of high school I started dabbling with the idea of also making music.

Some of my biggest influences are artists like Kanye West, Aries, Dominic Fike, Young Thug, Tyler The Creator, Mac Miller, Travis Scott, and many more. A lot of the music I like to make takes inspiration from whatever I’m listening to at the moment. I listen to a wide range of music, mostly hip-hop and indie/rock.

In my senior year of high school, me and a couple friends made a mixtape and dropped it on SoundCloud. I love to rap/sing, which I’ve mostly done over Youtube Type beats and recorded using my headphones mic and Garageband. I recently got into producing and composing instrumentals as well using FL Studio.

I’m really looking forward to this class and hope to have the opportunity to learn in depth about more of the general technical skills required in producing music using computer software. I also hope to learn a little more about music theory and some of the sonic techniques used by artists in the music industry.
