The Soulmate Duology

The Story Behind the Music
December 2018 – April 2019

I started working on these tracks at around 11pm the night of my last final before winter break and I worked on it until 7am. Then, I went to sleep, woke up and continued to work on it. Eating, sleeping, working on this music and watching Disney Channel Christmas movies was really all I did on the first weekend of my winter break and it was an amazing, cathartic, nostalgic, all-around feel-good experience.

It wasn’t until Spring Break that I realized the two tracks I was working on reminded me of the relationship between “Lilo & Stitch”. The first track, “LILO”, sounds like a calm, bittersweet question about what to do when you feel lost while the second track, “STITCH”, sounds like a wild, extraterrestrial answer. Thus, “The Soulmate Duology” was born. I hope you enjoy these instrumentals. If not, that’s okay because I really enjoyed making it.

P.S. The answer is to express it through my art.

The Story Behind the Music
Age 18 – Age 22 (a.k.a. – The College Years)

When I was 18 years old, I wrote a poem called, “It’s a Trap”, inspired by Peter Pan. I was feeling quite angsty and I didn’t think I was ready to grow up. Little did I know, no one is ever ready for adulthood and even the most, seemingly, put together adults have no idea what they are doing. Throughout the past few years, I’ve realized that although adulthood comes with its own unique set of challenges and responsibilities, it also comes with an immense amount of freedom and can truly be whatever you make it.
