Two weeks in 木柵 (Muzha).

#ambientmusic #soundscapes #shamanic #fieldrecordings #darkambient After leaving Berlin and spending a couple of weeks with my family I arrived in my new home Taiwan where I had to undergo two weeks of self-isolation. I crammed most of my gear into my luggage so I could set up my little studio right away. What came into being is this three track EP. I felt very different recording and producing it. The "naive" and light Berlin sound was blown away, as I robbed myself of this super calm & safe space that I had gotten used to so much. Suddenly I was confronted with a lot of heaviness, confusion and a variety of internal struggle. I found that quite disturbing - hadn't I just arrived in some sort of paradise? I utilized more field recordings, voices (including my own), percussion / beats and less synth sounds. No plugins besides EQ & compression have been used. From a technical standpoint this EP represents a novelty and a turning point for me. Unlike my earlier releases where I live recorded all input onto a single track and later applied some degree of EQing, I implemented my birthday gift, a Tascam DP008EX, into my setup which allowed me to export each track into a DAW (I work in Reaper on Linux) and apply full mixing / mastering. All this is very well reflected in the sound of Two weeks in 木柵 (Muzha). I invite you to listen, reach out to me and tell me what you think about it: https://dontoverthinklife.bandcamp.com/album/two-weeks-in-muzha And please R E M I N D & S H A R E if you want to support me.

Hi community 👋 My name is E and I make music as #dontoverthinklife. I was fed up living my manager life and being a slave to the system. I couldn't take it anymore, decided to quit, woke up the next morning and put my decision in action. That was the beginning of my "second life". I then decided to leave Berlin and move to #Taiwan which is where I am right now :). I turned my back on social media a very long time ago but recently learned about Minds. So I want to give it a try and see if I can contribute to build a better platform. :)
