music

I love creating music - whether it be writing and composing from scratch, re-writing lyrics often from another language into English, or simply covering a special song in my own style.

magical process of writing songs: 

There is often a moment of inspiration, where I stumble for my

notepad app on my phone and messily type down lyric ideas. Sometimes,

it's just one line, waiting patiently for the perfect opportunity to be weaved into

a verse, a chorus, bridge. Sometimes, lines from different inspirations

are knitted together -- as if they belonged to the same spool of yarn

in the first place, now finally reunited into blanket of words.

Most times, the rivers of lyrics swirl and splash and crash into each other, 

their rhythmic, dynamic waves creating new rivers downstream that flow.

Down, down, down the song they flow.

The melody carries its syllables swiftly and safely to shore.

 Although I only have basic guitar and piano skills, it doesn't stop me from jamming to songs ^ ^ 

There are many songs that mean a lot to me, and so - I like to show my appreciation for them by covering them :'D

 
 

Special Covers

I've loved listening to songs in different languages for years. At first it was Japanese songs because of anime. Then it was Korean songs, simply because they're beautiful. And then there were some Chinese songs; back to my roots, amiright? Haha. Either way, I wanted a way to express my appreciation for these songs, and share the many feelings that they have given me. So I've started translating their lyrics into English, and writing English versions of the songs. Sometimes they take weeks, sometimes months -- and sometimes, close to a year to finalize. In a way, I've found my own way to give back to the song. So...enjoy :')
