As Far As Hair Goes

I’ve been asked to write some music/collaborate for Uchenna Dance Company for April, so I started sketching ideas. Themes are beauty, the self, esteem.

I sampled youtube, it’s a great way for me to feed my obsession with learning how to groom my natural tresses. Some of the ladies, in their discourse on beauty, had beautiful ways of saying words, interesting intonation, so I chopped up their phrases and used them on my beat/sketch. It’s meant to sound quite sparse, abstract…
I was playing with a glockenspiel during a school break when working at an academy in Brixton, I vowed to use it in my next composition. Lots of mixing to do still, the beat needs more work too!

Let me know what you think.

    Love the edgy nature of the beats and vocals to counteract the playful sounds of the glockenspiel 🙂

  3. That’s cool and at the same time challenging. I think you need a lot of readings on this topic about beauty and self esteem.

    Good this is Bobbin, I am getting a couple dubstep notes with an undercurrent of Tots TV. Heavy.
    Keep it up Mary Anne Bobs.
