Discography rename

Posted on Updated on

My discography rename, particularly for the artwork, has been completed to change all my albums away from my pen name (NuwrayN) to my artist name, J. Park. It’s in distribution right now, and should become generally available inside a month.

You can listen to my entire discography here in the meantime.

Growing the music

Posted on

I’ve been creating music using my synth workstation, the Yamaha Motif XS 8, for the past 7 years. It has served me well. I’ve learned the ins and outs of creating, meshing, and melding the sounds to get the exact reflection of what I feel, and to date I’ve been able to do just that without any external plugin or other instrument.

As with anything, you gradually outgrow the capabilities that you start with. Now begins the most radical shift in my music creation.

My signature sound is and always be a Yamaha, whether it be a C7 or a CFIII. How I arrive at that sound, however, will change. I have been vetting a number of powerful plugins that will truly usher my music into a new chapter, and eliminating my biggest obstacle: the dreaded polyphony.

6 tracks have already been laid for the new album. I may just shorten it rather than create a standard album of 10+ tracks and call it a release as-is, because I plan to build a full, proper studio to compliment my shift in music. This will ensure that you and I get nothing but the best, and that you hear exactly what the true nature and feeling of what I intend you to hear. This is what I call “growing the music”.

The wait will be worth it, so just have a little more patience. Great things coming soon. Don’t forget to listen to all my music here, and if you like it buy it, and let your friends listen too!

Until next time!

Secretly Enchanted

Posted on Updated on

Here is the eleventh and last track of my fifth studio album If You Were Here. The title of the song is Secretly Enchanted, and is one of the most complex musical scores I’ve written to date. Enjoy, and here’s to continuation of success, happiness, and light…

Summon the Dawn

Posted on

Continuing on with a track a week, this song is called Summon the Dawn. It is the tenth track off my new album If You Were Here. Enjoy.

Beauty of the Forest

Posted on

This song is called Beauty of the Forest. It is the ninth song off my new album, If You Were Here, and is a full orchestral score, very peaceful and soothing. Enjoy.

Innocence

Posted on

The 8th track off my new album If You Were Here is called Innocence. I made this song right after a little more than a month hiatus, which culminated in the composition of six songs till the album was released, which I mentioned earlier.

This track is kind of uplifting; it portrays an innocence so welcoming and inspiring. Kind of like my inspiration for the song. So without further ado, here it is. Enjoy.

The Crown Jewel: If You Were Here

Posted on

This song is the crown jewel of my new album, the title track: If You Were Here. This song captures the essence of the album and summarizes all the feelings and inspiration I had for this album and condenses it into four and a half minutes. I swear that I myself must have listened to this song over 3,000 times by itself; I’ve had my music app on repeat for so long, and I still haven’t tired of it.

There’s a reason why it’s the title track. I hope you enjoy it, as it is a wonderful dedication, and exhaustively, painstakingly, and intricately composed and engineered.
