dc.description.abstractThis exegesis explores the ideals and outcomes resulting from a practice based research project. It will provide some context in regards to my transition and migration from the music industry into the academic setting, and addresses the interests, influences, as well as this project’s aims and objectives. It features detailed descriptions around the use of a home-based studio, especially in regards to how DAW technologies – in the form of a laptop and basic audio interface – are applied to achieve creative and commercially viable results. This exegesis focuses on the creation of an original album, called ‘The Stillness’, which will be released internationally under the name Pacific Heights. The album applies contemporary and vintage technologies alongside my own unique production techniques. After exploring relevant literature and methods, the exegesis provides in-depth and personal reflections on each of the tracks that feature on the album. Through this description, primary elements from each track are detailed. Screenshots show how specific plug-ins a re used, and channel strip settings are revealed. In the conclusion, I discuss the international strategy through which the album will be released. I will also answer some introspective questions that respond to the objectives and aims that I have set for myself as an artist who is new to academia.
