Welcome to installment number three of the Drifter Series - where I pack up my backpack with my laptop, headphones, and a disposable camera and see where the world takes me.
For this song I had a hard time getting started for the day. I was lacking inspiration and spent a lot of time debating where I should go. For whatever reason I went through my old photos and found a picture from August of 2018 where I was standing at sunset at an overlook at Griffith Park. At the time I was a junior in college and I remember so vividly the overwhelming draw I had to figure out a way to move to Los Angeles one day. I put my things together and drove to that same spot.
I spent the day walking around the park and its surrounding neighborhoods and couldn’t help but experience Deja Vu. It’s almost three years later, but it felt exactly like that day in August of 2018. After recording some ambience, I hopped back in the car, plugged in the aux, and got to work.
The winner of this NFT will receive:
- The Ableton project file
- The .wav file of the song
- The .jpeg artwork
- All 25 disposable pictures taken
- A handwritten letter with the lyrics
- A 30 minute FaceTime project walkthrough of how the song was made
It’s Deja Vu
If I’m honest I’m on to you
Smoke and Mirrors surround the room
Like It’s Deja Vu
