This playlist features my two music acts, Aristotle's Hope and Minnasia. Either way they feature my original songs which tend to be extended modern progressive rock. Minnasia features my friend and vocalist Voua 'Bob' Yang.
Writing songs is similar to cooking -- you throw ingredients together and arrange them. Here I go through elements of music and describe how it makes us feel. Knowing how each piece affects us emotionally helps us create more expressive, impactful music.
Impactful Songwriting is a songwriting approach where the goal is to move your audience deeply. We pay special attention to aligning all the elements (rhythm, harmony, melody, lyrics) to work cohesively to engage the listeners' hearts. Learning this craft will raise your standards, so you can consistently write powerful songs.
These are mostly my review of guitar overdrive pedals. In contrast to other people who simply demo the products, I aim to actually review it, pointing out little details that other demo-ers miss and offering my opinion on the product's strengths.
Part personal development/inspirational, part lyrics interpretation -- this is a series in which I ponder the meaning of the songs and draw out life's lessons and truths. Have a listen even if you don't know the song!
