Album Description

This album is the culmination of a several month collaborative project I've championed, creating stimulating music with many of my favorite drummers; friends, mentors, colleagues, and remote collaborators. I presented 25 different pieces to 25 individuals, sent them bare bone sketches of compositions, received their interpretation/arrangement of the piece, then spent an additional day producing each individual track to compliment the aesthetic that the featured artist brought to it. Some of these pieces were brand new at the time, some were rather old, never-released pieces that I re-purposed for this project. (I should also note that this is a video series, and can be seen on my IGTV page @machadomijiga or my YouTube channel) Aside from the drummers featured on each track (and with the exception of the bonus track), I created everything else that you're hearing myself, in my bedroom. Instruments, Singing, Rapping, Compositions, Artwork, Production, and Engineering were all done by me. All non-music sound clips compliments of Apple Loops or Pexels and Copyright-Free (CC0). You can pay whatever you'd like for this project, and feel to share if you hear anything that you particularly enjoyed.
