Yo whaddup this is MC Cynthia in the hizzy

Music has always been a big part of my life, besides the fact that I’m constantly on the prowl on Spotify and YouTube, I also create some loops on my own time, sometimes with lyrics. So if you need a female vocalist, feel free to ask me.

I used to play a bit of piano and oboe so I have a bit of a classical background. Although most of my audio producing experience has been from editing my podcast that I did last year as an independent study and from last semester in 1421.

This year, I hope to get a little crazy and just do weird stuff. I’m really into Wintergatan’s Marble Machine and the thought of creating something even on one-tenth of the scale of that thing would be incredible.

Concert’s recording

Will the recording of the concert be available to us to see? I would like to see it again!

Fried Rice Survey (for final presentation)

Concert Order

Please see below for a concert order. We will try to keep the concert moving by have all three stations (studio laptops 1 and 2 or your own computer) filled with performers at all times, one performing and the others preparing.

If you are not, for any reason, not listed here or must adjust your time on the concert (think roughly an hour per section), let me know ASAP. I have tried to accommodate all desired times, alternate studio and personal computers, and provide variety in the performance. I’m excited for the performance.

Project 2

Hello everyone,

I’m going to use my project 2 as starting material for the final project, but I didn’t share it in class, so I thought I’d share it here. It has a lot of room for improvement, so all feedback (negative and positive) is welcome!
