My Music Project

Mnono_awre is the music production project I started in 2017.

Mono-no aware: is a Japanese word that encapsulates the meaning of the ephemeral nature of beauty – the quietly elated, bittersweet feeling of having been witness to the dazzling circus of life – knowing that none of it can last.

Because with music, I feel a universe of things and a kaleidoscope of emotions.

My tracks are postcards from the places emotions take me. Some I try to capture crystallising them in time for future consumption and nostalgic daydreaming of things that were.


I had been going through some stuff around that time.

Instruments:
Volca sample of beats
Volta FM on baseline
Synth one (on iPad) modified sine patch with Arturia Keystep’s sequencer.
PO-33 samples from a jazz song don’t remember recording.
Added some after-effects in Reason 10.


All the things we felt, all the things we lived last summer in Vilnius.
We walked, we talked, we accidentally ended up places.


Moving towards our summer destination.
Heathrow.


I was mesmerised by Slenterende Beer’s latest track “4x Volca Keys With Tascam 4-Track Cassette Recorder”(youtu.be/37xMwKzIEkk) and felt the urge to find a way to be part of it.
This track is my interpretation of the journey I was taken on.

I was just discharged from the hospital.
Didn’t really see anyone for 10 days.
I’ve been holding on to memories.


14/02/2020 We celebrated 10yrs together.
What a journey it has been, eh?
I’m the luckiest man to have you by my side.
Composed entirely in Reason 10.


It was a late May Bank Holiday.
So we went to the beach with the kids.
After a week of rain, it felt lucky to have such nice Sunny weather.
This song is the memory of that day.
There were bells on the Pier.


As lockdown measures were being eased, we cautiously ventured outside to a nearby park and enjoy the weather, and we took a kite with us.


A daydream of all of the things that could have been.
A daydream in between stops on my journey home.
Then I get off, just move on with real life and forget it ever happened.


One of my few best friends moved to a faraway country so we had dinner together with the gang. IT felt both a happy time because we got to see each other again after such a long time (quarantine) and sad because it’ll be a long time before it will happen next.


I made this track in 2-3 days.
I wanted to make something happy and cheerful that would remind me of how awesome it’ll be once we can go outside again without fear.
2021 will hopefully be alright.
