I am Georgia Atkinson (AKA G), an 18 year old musician/artist from South Wales. I entered HLAG last year and was overwhelmed by the support it gave me as a drummer and was really glad to see the new technology category, as I have been writing and producing my own songs at home since I first discovered what a DAW was. From the age of 11 I researched how to record myself and was fascinated by how sounds and synthesis can be manipulated to completely warp elements, to create a whole new story/feeling/scene. Over the past year I have been working in Logic and I create tracks with influences from various genres and artists, from Pharrell to David Byrne. My track "BACTERIA" is based around trying to break through the wall of feeling like an outsider and it observes some of society's dark habits. I didn't want the percussion to overpower the vocal line so I kept the layers quite linear in some parts, I also wanted a minimalistic sound to focus on the lyrical content in the verses. I wanted sound effects to converse with the vocals, for example rhythmic clinking glass sounds reflect the casino that's being sung about.
Next year I am going to study Drums at ICMP London and I am going to work consistently on my own music to build up a profile as an artist.
