about

This is What You Sound Like is a tongue in cheek re-imagining of some of my favourite musical styles from my formative years. In this album, classical orchestral music, 1980s pop, vaporwave, electronic dance music (specifically post 2005 drum and bass), jazz and battle rap forms are reconstructed in a foreign idiom with their most characteristic sounds. Tracks 1, 3, 6 and 9 form a four-movement classical symphony mould. Almost every title is a pun.

If you liked this, here are some starting points for research into this sort of thing:

The Art of Noise – Who's Afraid of the Art of Noise
The Art of Noise – In no sense? Nonsense!
