Here is the first "In Tune" blog post. In Tune is a new project I have started, featuring portraits of people and a description of a song that has meant something to them. Whether it be a song that reminds them of that rainy day in 2005, a good summer, their old car, their sister, or it is simply catchy, every song has a "place" to someone. Music has always been an immense aspect of my life and my creative process. It intrigues me what music can mean to an individual, how it can be "in tune" with them. I intend to show that connection.
Shemaine chose Away From Me by CHINAH. The song immediately caught her attention upon hearing it for the first time. She often listens to it to find a calmer place and unwind. The song has a way of suiting Shemaine's character quite well I found, as we listened to it on repeat and discussed our current life events. It's a beautiful and relaxing song made up of soothing female vocals and enough melodic bass to make anyone happy.
