Lesson One: The Mission and Rhythm
Chen and Asante demonstrate how to create a song around the ideas and images expressed in a personal artistic mission statement.
- Watch the video in which Soul Science Lab introduces their song “Victory” and revisits the goal you created for yourself in your mission statement.
- Note how Asante and Chen create new chorus lyrics from the ideas expressed in their mission statement.
- Revisit your mission statement.
- Break the statement apart into sections.
- Brainstorm key words and ideas for each section.
- Do your best to create something that captures your ideas in simple terms.
- Create a four-bar hook based on your mission statement.
- Create a simple beat in SoundTrap or another DAW.
- Experiment with saying your mission over the beat. Add rhythm and swag to your mission statement.
- Record your performance so you can listen back to it and hear what works.
