Jennifer Knight – Epic EDM Artist in Production Music

It is not uncommon for trailer music and production music to overlap with one another. As trailer music is in essence a branch under the tree of the aforementioned field. Therefore, some music that may not necessarily fall into the ‘epic genre’ contains that epic tone. A case in point is music from an artist that I’ve had the privilege to know thus far in Jennifer Knight.

She is a rising music artist who certainly has the potential to set the stage for her genre of what can be termed ‘pop music.’ Originally from Merrill, Wisconsin she has been working diligently yetIMG_20150306_231931 passionately to bring her work into the public eye over the last few years.

Her specific music genre’s she’s in are pop, electronica, and dance.

So what songs out of her repertoire thus far contain the epic tone ? Well look no further than the single ‘Starlight’.  This song contains a clear electronic tone and is also known as eDM (short for electronic dance music). It was produced by AJ Afterparty, a DJ in L.A.

Her other single is ‘Twinkle and Shine’. tw

Her songs are also selling on iTunes and other digital media outlets. Follow her on Facebook and on her official music site here.

Robert Etoll & the Q-Factory are at it again

qSome months ago, we did a feature on Q-Factory. Well in recent times, they most certainly haven’t been silent.

No but rather come a new host of trailer music albums. Pulses 2

Pulses 2 (http://robertetoll.com/catalog?mode=album&album=57) is the sequel to Pulses 1 (http://robertetoll.com/catalog?mode=album&album=21), which was a huge success for us. Because of the high demand from editors & supervisors for the first release (everyone honestly kept asking us when we were going to release more!), we came up with twenty-five sound design / tonal compositions that truly make your heart race. Pulses 2 (http://robertetoll.com/catalog?mode=album&album=57) is perfect for all styles, especially the following: Thriller, Suspense, Action, Horror, Sci-Fi, etc…

Singles

Singles (http://robertetoll.com/catalog?mode=album&album=56) is a new thing we’re trying out for pieces that don’t yet have a home — it’s kind of our version of a holding pattern until the full releases are completed. Most of the tracks on Singles (http://robertetoll.com/catalog?mode=album&album=56) are in the emotional & inspiring styles. Robert Etoll (https://www.facebook.com/robertetollproductions) and his team of composers recorded live strings and live brass for this compilation at Firehouse Recording Studios (http://www.firehouserecordingstudios.com) in Pasadena, CA.

Industrial Rage
The second installment of our “Rage” series, these 10 compositions in the Electronic/Industrial/Electro-Rock style have broken the sound barrier, so get ready for some new and unique noise.

Interview with Uyanga Bold

10615653_10100218764251689_508716305_n  Meet Uyanga Bold, a female vocalist from Mongolia.  She was willing to do a brief interview from TMV and I’m proud to present her feedback below.

 

- What inspired you to do vocalist work?

Like dominos falling, many moments in my life moved me into doing vocalist work. Simply put? I studied classical piano since I was a child (I’m asian). I’ve always loved playing Beethoven’s Moonlight sonata, it was powerful, you fell into a trance. But being a bit of an exhibitionist, I didn’t like hiding behind the piano. To my parents’ chagrin, I sought, what to my mind, was a more direct connection with the listener.

There’s also something about the process of singing that fascinates and inspires me. First of all, your instrument is *inside* your body, you can’t touch it and you can’t peer inside it (unless you use medical technology.) It’s fragile, requires a lot of care and needs to be amplified if you’re not classically trained, and even then. Physically, there is your breath that vibrates your vocal cords and is amplified by the cavities in your head, and is released through the motion of your tongue, teeth and lips, which is why every person has a different timbre – you’re hearing their anatomical uniqueness. Spiritually, the breath, I like to believe, contains a bit of the essence of the soul. We breathe as long as we live and we exhale our last breath when we die. Before you sing a note, you become aware of that connection and you transition from autonomic to conscious breathing. Singing is conscious breathing, like meditation. Lastly, it’s crazy! By making minute adjustments to your body, you can manipulate the voice in so many ways: breathy, head voice, belting, soulful moaning, melismas, cries, nasal, beatbox, etc, so you can experiment and emulate many sounds, singers, and instruments. It’s fun: say you hum a note in a way that you feel it vibrating in your nasal cavity and “buzzing” your teeth and lips, as you open your mouth slowly, you can manipulate the sound, like an “analog” synthesizer. It’s awesome. The list of inspirations goes on!

- Can you tell us about yourself?

My name, “Uyanga”, means lyrical and expressive in Mongolian. Born in Moscow, I’m a Mongolian vocalist and vocal arranger fluent in 4 languages: English, French, Russian and Mongolian. A shy overachieving kid in Mongolia, I studied singing, theatre work and songwriting as a teen in Switzerland, before studying music, theory, songwriting and vocal performance from all over the world at Berklee College of Music. After graduating with a Vocal Performance degree, I worked in Boston for a couple of years, before moving to LA. That was 7 months ago.

I have sung in over a dozen languages, including Amharic, Bulgarian, Afrikaans, Bambara (Mali), French, Russian and more, which helps with making up fantastical languages for sessions. I’ve done many types of vocal work: live vocal soloist with symphony orchestras, ethnic and pop recording sessions with solo singing and harmony arranging/singing for composers and producers, world backing vocals for Grammy winner Angelique Kidjo, rock band lead vocals, R&B backing vocals for Grammy nominee Blu Cantrell, Bulgarian and African choir vocals for the Women of the World, soul/world/pop vocal performing, writing and arranging with my 9-12 piece band back in Boston, and more shows than I can count. I’ve been featured in TV, radio broadcasts, print and digital media in Europe, Asia and in the United States

Forbes (Romania) said – very nicely – that my voice “harkens back to ancient civilizations”, but my goal is to sound like the voice of ancient, current and future civilizations… to be timeless. (muahaha!)

- What’s your favorite thing about epic music?

The word epic says it all! I love the grand, the heroic and the inspiring. Writing and orchestrating epic music takes skill, patience and dedication. Epic fuses many elements: symphonic, electronic, celtic, metal, world, folk, new age, trailer etc. It’s emotional, and it’s badass.

- Any future projects?

Remote sessions (another epic track planned with the awesome Valentin Boomes from Germany, hashing out a track with epic Mongolian vocals with Gianni Marino, who wants to mix epic, club/festival with orchestral and ethnic elements, currently negotiating fees with an awesome Swiss composer in Bangkok who contacted me to sing on his gorgeous track, etc), sessions in LA (I just recorded ethnic vocals for an independent film), a live concert in November with the fantastic Tina Guo and R. Armando Morabito in San Diego at the Asian Heritage Awards, where I’ll be singing Ray’s awesome epic music. I’m also working on my solo music, which is Bjork meets Lisa Gerrard by way of Mongolia. Musically EDM with elements of film score and orchestral with epic, emotional, ethnic and ethereal vocals.

- Can you describe a typical work day for yourself.

Well, first things first, coffee haha. I check my correspondence via all the various ways one can be reached these days, I check my social media and news. I practice. When I’m warmed up, I open logic and start a remote session, unless I have a session in town. I consider Facebooking a part of my job, as I get a lot work through it. I edit photos and work on bettering myself not only as a musician, but as a brand. Back in Boston, on top of my singing work, I used to do more varied work like managing bands and doing social media for an orchestra. But in LA, I want to focus on my career as a singer. If I have time in the evening (too often I don’t), I work on my music and read up on recording techniques and what’s going on in the music industry before passing out. Lots of things happen in between, of course, including photoshoots, attending various events, screenings, panels and seminars, brainstorming sessions, negotiations and (heh) interviews, all of which are practically the only socializing I do, I’m a workaholic.

 

- Any future projects?

Remote sessions (a collaboration with awesome Swiss composer in Bangkok Stephan Baer, a second epic track planned with amazing composer Valentin Boomes from Germany, brainstorming an epic track with Gianni Marino, a fantastic club/festival DJ/producer who’s fuzing EDM with orchestral elements and epic Mongolian vocals, and more), sessions in LA (I just recorded ethnic vocals for an independent film), a live concert in November with the brilliant Tina Guo and R. Armando Morabito at the Asian Heritage Awards in San Diego (to be confirmed), where I’ll be singing Ray’s awesome epic music. I’m also working on my solo music, which is Bjork meets Lisa Gerrard by way of Mongolia. Musically EDM with elements of film score and orchestral with epic, emotional, ethnic and ethereal vocals.
