Myoukochou — V8 Tumbleweed (Prairie Moonlight Mix) [Commissioned Work for Pepsii Love]
Myoukochou — V8 Tumbleweed [Commissioned Work for Pepsii Love]

Client: Pepsii Love

Brief: That chill wave western sound. Like something from Wild Arms.

It was great fun to work with Pepsii, even though “Western” is kind of out of my comfort zone! I sampled both my whistling and our bass guitar, Karliah, for this one, so the little ‘knocks’ and slides are real. The ‘chill wave’ part of the brief took a back seat when we started developing it, in favour of a cheesily stereotypical Western feel, but I made a little extra-chill ‘Prairie Moonlight Mix’ for funsies that she could use for a BRB screen or something, too. (She came back later for some themed alerts and I was more than happy to oblige!)

Client: Kenori Kokkino (2021)

Myoukochou — Adventure of an Aardwolf [Commissioned Work for Kenori Kokkino]

Client: Kenori Kokkino

Brief: Adventurous; outdoors adventure vibes; a bit active and reminding of a wide-open field/plains; open and warm; a little piratey, RPG field music

And of course, I immediately thought: clave time! That kind of unbalanced rhythm is always going on an adventure somewhere, and with mandolin, flamenco-style rhythm guitar, flute, accordion and fiddle, and a lot of back and forth testing out ideas, we built a sort of bardic adventure music (with a sort of organic slap bass!).

Client: Aki Aerum / Aieah (2021)

Myoukochou — A Nest for Lost Souls [Commissioned Work for Aki Aerum]

Client: Aki Aerum

Brief: Restful, fluffy and kind, would like a little cello

We ended up with a felt piano piece in a lulling, restful 3/4 time with some cello in the background, to suit her really calming streams.
