NosajiX - Harvest Season

Artist: NosajiX
Title: Harvest Season
Genre: Electronic

I met Jason Morin (AKA NosajiX) today by chance at a local computer company I had stopped in to visit to post some flyers and talk about teaching classes. Well, it was not coincidence because everything does happen for a reason. He teaches music composition with computers there and one thing lead to another and I found myself walking out the door with his CD in my hands.

His CD Harvest Season is a collection of electronic ambient compositions. The best way to explain what this music is about is to say that it is an intelligent display of digital ambiance. The intelligence factor plays a huge role in the overall process of making this music. There are no instruments used, just a computer. That fact alone is mind-boggling when I thought all along he was using a keyboard throughout the run of this CD. I called him after listening to his digital masterpiece and found out that it took him 500 hours of work to put it all together. It is obvious to me the reason it took so long. This is a labor of love and what makes it so special is how he got all the sounds together.

Two tracks in particular, which are beautiful and strongly classically influenced, are Track #13 "Brandyforthedamned" and # 21 "Meandyou2." If I did not know how this music was created I would have told you he was sitting at baby grand piano or one of the best Korg synthesizers on the market when he recorded these songs, they are so crisp clear and inviting. For electronic music, this entire project came as a total surprise to me how good it was and how much I really enjoyed it. Moreover, I thought most electronic music was shallow and thoughtless, I was dead wrong.

I asked Jason to send me a few words about the project and his process; this is what he had to say:

Electronic music is everywhere today, movie's, television, Top 40, and my favorite, video games.It is commonly thought that electronic music is all about repetitive loops or the "Techno" scene, if you will.While that may be true to a large part, electronic music can be very diverse and creative.Tracks like "Meandyou2" and "Brandyforthedamned" are an example of the diversity possible when you record every note of a piano and then arrange them to compose. Virtually every component of music and sound can be created, edited, arranged and recorded using the hardware and software available today.You can adjust velocity, pitch, tempo, breadth; you even have the ability of re-inventing the wheel so to speak by re-dividing an octave to say twenty-five parts or even a hundred.This gives us the ability to create chords and scales like never before heard by humans.

It is an exciting time to be alive for musicians.

Music of all types is beautiful, but my heart is really set in classical.Bringing the old style of composers like Hadyn, Mozart, and the like, together with a 3Gh computer, is bringing a completely new world of music forth. Pop singers had there fun, now lets bring back the music.

Most of "Harvest Season" was an experiment.With "Meandyou2," I wanted to bring back the timeless piano, and really "write" something, so I did."Brandyforthedamned" followed and more are in the works. Piano and symphony orchestra really marry well with synthesized software, and ah yes, the mouse.
