Every Once in a While

Discipline: Sound Design, Music Production, Graphic Design

Client: Personnel

Duration: July 2020 - June 2021

Last year in July 2020  during the lockdown, I started a self-initiated challenge to compose 50 tracks and I successfully completed the challenge in a year  :) This challenge certainly helped me to stay sane during the pandemic and helped me grow as a musician/ producer by the means of experimenting only. The project took me much longer than I expected but I learned so much. The reason why this project is called  'Every once in a while'  is that literally, I would make a track keeping some gap since I know I can't keep up with every day / consecutive day challenges, so gave myself some leave on that.



Most of the tracks were made in synchronicity with what I am reading, watching, or hearing. In some of my tracks I have used voice-over samples, thanks to everyone who contributed, I’ve credited all those whom I approached for sampling their voice, while in some of them I’ve used voice clips from YouTube videos (I don’t have any rights but none of the music is used for commercial purposes) and when I couldn’t find perfect voice over I even used text to speech functionality on different software.

I am aware 50 songs to go through at once can take a lot of time, hence here's my recommendation list: Entropy of a black hole, Voyager, Heliocentricity, Starship, Code of Hammurabi, Hit-enter-to-play, Computers are in control, Illustris & S4. I do agree a lot of tracks are not perfect and there's a huge scope of improvisation, but my aim was to get better as I aim for numbers. And this way it proves quantity over quality when you're measuring practice.

For the art, I kept a minimal style, giving the feeling of space to match the music.
