in theory - singularity (non-profit jazz/hip-hop album available via bandcamp!!)

Recommended Posts

edit (10/31): due to an overwhelming response from my supporters, we have exceeded bandcamp's monthly bandwidth cap. to circumvent this and keep the momentum alive, the album is now available through my mediafire account.

_____________________

singularity is a soulful blend of hip-hop and jazz, and the distillation of the transformativeness of much in my recent life.

the style of the album is inevitably a synthesis of all my big inspirations: nujabes, yngwie malmsteen, motoi sakuraba, yoko kanno, and the list goes on. for those unfamiliar, the album carries some serious overtones of both jazz and hip-hop (big nod to nujabes), though i've injected much of my own flavor into the mix. there is a touch of electronica. and the gratuitous guitar solo.

check the album at www.intheori.bandcamp.com

much love and God bless,

peter kim/in theory

I really like what I'm hearing in the song excerpts on the demo track. The excerpt from 0:43-1:05 with the vocals and the last excerpt with the gratuitous guitar solo both stood out as tracks I think I'll be listening to a lot :)

I have a lot of a love for nujabes (I own two of the Samurai Champloo OSTs and love their tracks) so any music that's drawing inspiration from them is something I'll be well interested to check out in full.

Also, I just finished listening to your Chrono Trigger remix. Congratulations on getting it posted, I think it's a wonderful take on a classic source tune.

This sounds great melody! I really like the two excerpts right after the first vocal track, the two predominately piano pieces, and the second one with the strings. I'll be looking forward to hearing the rest!

Holy crab! How in the world did I miss that?! :shock:

Been waiting for you to release an original album since forever bro.

That demo reel made my day, you have no idea.

I literally cannot wait for this. :D

wow, really stunned by the interest. my deepest thanks to everyone :)

there is some unfortunate news though: the album has been delayed till the 31st. a couple of my people need some more time to work, though you will have a much better end product for your patience!

Wow, very cool, particularly the track right after the middle point with the very jazzy piano and chord progressions. Love that stuff.

luv sic part 5? I genuinely hope you don't get in trouble with anyone holding Nujabes' copyrights. Not sure if you would, but thats the first thing to come to mind.

Track is dope, gotta admit.

Btw, did you ever get the message I sent you on Youtube?

I was talking about it being titled "luv sic part 5", but if it's not covered, which I don't imagine to be true, now might be a good time to do it (this is partly what I do for a living).

back to the music though, i appreciate the kind words man and hope you get a copy of the album :)

How much? I want to be able to make good on supporting other artists as I hock my own wares constantly these days, but it hasn't yet alleviated my budgetary concerns. I'm only going to make about $50 in my bank account this month alone, so money's kinda tight.

That said, yes, I would be happy to support you whenever possible. It's only fair if I expect people to buy my shit that I should do the same for others. :)
