Losing And Finding Music After Brain Surgery | TOKiMONSTA

Losing And Finding Music After Brain Surgery | TOKiMONSTA


(electronic music) – When I went through
the surgery for Moyamoya, I didn’t tell anyone.
(bright music) It was a very difficult time for me. (electronic music) I had to write down what would happen to all my things if I were to die. (electronic music) I think when you’re faced
with your own mortality, you wanna make sure
that you lived your life how you wanted to live it. I just wanna keep making
the most amazing music and showing people that if I
can do it, anyone can do it. (electronic music) (upbeat music) My name is Jennifer Lee,
but I’m better known as TOKiMONSTA.
♪ Show me ♪ ♪ Where the light stays ♪ ♪ Find it on the path ♪
I am a music producer and live performer DJ, and all
the songs are composed by me. Electronic music is the
music producer’s world. It is what you can do
to push the envelope. ♪ I ♪
My music is electronic. ♪ In your feelings ♪ But is has many organic
sounds, like a piano, or a violin. How you guys doing? Going a step further beyond
that is creating instruments out of non-instruments.
(“Rouge” by Tokimonsta) So something that I like to
do is use field recordings. (bright music) I take a little recorder around with me and record different kinds
of sounds that I like. (helicopter roars)
(bright music) I can use little bits of
that to create new sounds. (bright music)
(sticks click) (foot scoffs)
(bright music) (rock dings)
(bright music) They do have a really interesting tonality that is not common in music.
(bright music) This is my song, “Rose’s Thorn.” It is a track off my most
recent album, Lune Rouge. (“Rose’s Thorn” by Tokimonsta) With this track, I did use
a lot of field recordings. For the drum sounds, I
decided to use a truck door. (truck door slams) Rocks hitting each other.
(rocks click) And a regular snare drum.
(snare drum clacks) I layered them all on top of each other. Together, we have– (percussion clacks) And the great thing is when
you do stuff like that, no one else will have that sound. No one else will have a
snare-truck-door-rock sound in their song.
(upbeat percussion music) They’re unusual sounds, things that are not considered music. I recorded this wonderful beach sound.
(ocean waves gush) That like weird, bird chirping. (birds chirp) There is something to me
about creating an environment in a song, it takes you somewhere else, beyond just the song and the melodies, you’re actually removing
someone from their environment and putting them by the
sea, putting them in nature. (ocean waves gush) (bright music) I was raised in Torrance, California. I was born to an immigrant mother. My father passed away
when I was very young, so for the most part, I was
raised by a single mother who worked very hard to
kind of provide for me. So I took piano for about 10 years, and my upbringing introduced me to music. Though, I don’t think
my mom intended for me to become a musician.
(upbeat music) I remember discovering west coast hip-hop, everything about it was something that appealed to me a lot, and I flourished in that.
(upbeat music) I would start producing
once I entered college. Even though I loved hip-hop,
I had no access to rappers when I was starting out,
so the music started to become hip-hop beats but
with electronic sounds in it. No one had heard this style of music that was so much hip-hop
but was so forward thinking and electronic. I started participating in other events with other producers. And I became apart of a scene. (upbeat percussion music) That itself could almost
just be like a rap beat. The drums themselves are just so simple without anything else,
that’s why I find it. Percussion is very important. I think it creates movement.
(upbeat percussion music) Even the pianos, the main
thing is that there’s movement. (upbeat music) That bass sound is very simple. All it is is one note.
(upbeat music) Rhythm guitar.
(upbeat music) The guitar lead.
(upbeat music) They are not coming from a real guitar. I was going for a
non-realistic guitar sound. I made this song like
right after my surgery. It was one of the first
songs that I worked on. (dramatic, atmospheric music) Around 10 years ago, I
started getting migraines. One doctor suggested that I
potentially could have a disease called Moyamoya, the arteries in the left and right side that
supply blood to your brain start to shrink, and then,
so what ends up happening is stroke, aneurism, you will die. Fast forward about 10 years later, I had a strange incident where
I couldn’t feel my left foot. In the back of my head, I’ve always had that Moyamoya thing there. By January of 2015, I
had two brain surgeries a week apart from each other. (dramatic, atmospheric music) Right after the surgery,
I was tired and in pain, but I was OK. It was the recovery
process that was difficult. I would get stroke symptoms
where I couldn’t feel the entire left side of my
body and, just out of nowhere, I completely lost my ability to talk and to understand speech. And I could no longer
communicate with anyone, and one thing that I noticed
about this entire process was I couldn’t understand music anymore. It’s nothing but noise. Like an airplane flying in the sky. (airplane roars)
I couldn’t understand music, so there was no music anymore. That was very difficult for me. (uplifting music) Eventually, I noticed that
the language was getting a little better, day by day. A soundtrack was coming
back, all the music that you hear, in the
elevator, out of people’s cars, on TV–
– Understanding– – All these things were slowly
creeping back into my life, and I was elated.
(bright music) – Hi.
– Hey. You look good.
– How’s it going? – [Tokimonsta] Good. – [Ioanna] What are you doing today? – So this is what I have up right now. These are all from the same take, but I had to mix them all differently ’cause depending on what note you sing, those frequencies would jump out more. When I went to open my
computer to be like, “OK, this is the time,
it’s my time to shine. “I’m gonna try making a new song.” It was awful, it was garbage,
it didn’t sound good at all. I didn’t know how to make music anymore. I figured if everything else came back, this would come back.
– Let’s try re-recording one of your leads for our song. – Cool.
– And see if we can like breathe in some new life.
– Sounds good. – I’m gonna start from the–
– People think I had to relearn how to make music;
I didn’t have to relearn it. I just had to wait for it to come back. – [Ioanna] But I’ll
play like a couple bars before it goes in.
– Fast forward just like a week or two
weeks, I was able to make the very first song that ended
up on my most recent album. Cool! That was great.
– Cool! – What a great recording. Another element of the song
are these little vocal samples. They are not words, they
don’t mean anything. It’s just effects. (singers scat) It is having the beauty of a person’s voice without them distracting you with words, and these songs essentially
make themselves. And, even I’m surprised at
the end how they come to feel. Like I had no idea I’d end
up making a song like this. For me, as a musician,
I always wanna innovate. I don’t wanna be making
the same type of music as everyone else, ’cause
then, why would people need to listen to my music?
(“Rose’s Thorn” by Tokimonsta) After the brain surgery,
the one thing that changed was my philosophical approach. Once you’re faced with the
fact that you might die, you realize, I don’t wanna live my life for anyone else but myself. I wanna be the kind of artist
that creates her own vision for herself, no matter
what it is that I do. And I wanna know that each
day I live, I feel fulfilled. (“Rose’s Thorn” by Tokimonsta)

What Does Electric Pow Wow Sound Like? (feat. @A Tribe Called Red and Iron Boy)

What Does Electric Pow Wow Sound Like?  (feat. @A Tribe Called Red and Iron Boy)


– So where are we going now? – We are going to our– – The cabin. – The cabin? (electric powwow dance music) – This place is, we fell in love with it when we started working here, it’s like this little
hidden spot in the city. – [Nahre] Electronic dance
music has always been fertile ground for the
blending of musical genres. Canadian DJs 2oolMan and Bear Witness, collectively known as A Tribe Called Red, combine the sounds of traditional
native powwow drum circles with electronic dance music
to create something they call electric powwow. – We’re here. – [Nahre] I was able to sit
in with A Tribe Called Red as they started to work
on a new batch of music. – [2oolman] So it’s a little
bit of a tight squeeze getting in here (laughs) – [Nahre] At a hard-to-find studio on a residential street in Toronto. (electric powwow music) – [2oolman] I love this unit. – [Nahre] So how did
Tribe Called Red start? – It all grew out of a club night. – [Nahre] A club night? – Yeah, so back in like 2008, a few of us got together in Ottawa. We didn’t really know
each other all that well but just came together under the idea that we’re all Native
DJs working in the city and let’s throw a party together. The reaction that we got
from our community was that, you’ve started something, you’ve
created this space for us, and you have to keep doing it now. – [Nahre] Did you feel
pressure in any way? – Not so much pre… Well, I mean there was a
really quick realization that we were doing something much bigger than we thought we were. We thought we were just throwing a party and would advertise to our community, but really quickly we realized that it meant a lot more to them than that. That taking up space within
the urban environment as indigenous people is a
difficult thing sometimes. To actually have a community and a culture that is urban and is
indigenous, isn’t new. We’ve been here since these
were forts and villages, but our visibility has changed. – [Nahre] You guys are pioneering then. – Well, I mean–
– [Nahre] Parts of it? – I’ve always said that
we’re part of a wave, like we threw this party and got told we had to keep doing it
by people in the community so we’re always following that
wave, not really leading it. (electric powwow music) – [Nahre] When you’re
creating new projects do you keep in mind
this cultural landscape, this wave that you’re talking about? – I mean, I guess it’s finding a balance between those things. Break it down into DJ terms,
you’re reading the room. (electric powwow music) – [Bear Witness] Our
second album was called Nation II Nation because we
were producing it at a time when there was a new
movement happening in Canada called Idle No More. – A First Nations protest movement is quietly spreading across the country. – First Nations protestors
gathered on Parliament Hill once again, and– – [Bear Witness]
Indigenous people in Canada all together stood up and said, “We’re not going to quietly
let things happen anymore.” There was this huge influx of
indigenous people in Ottawa who came from all over
the country to protest. So that album, Nation II Nation, it even got its name, Nation II Nation because that’s what we’re calling for, we’re calling to have a
conversation, a talk with Canada, from the indigenous nation
to the settler nation. So, you know, that vibe, everything that was happening got put into the album. (electric powwow music) – [Nahre] The energy of a protest movement is only one ingredient in their music. A Tribe Called Red uses
samples of native drum circles as the basis for almost
all of their music. What started off as an experiment, sampling drum sounds from
powwow videos they found on YouTube, has turned
into a collaboration. – [2oolman] So I was going to
bring this up really quick. (computer mouse clicking) I asked ’em to give me different patterns, so they gave us different
patterns that they sing with. (powwow drums playing) So this is a sidestep
groove, so it’s a sidestep. And then there’s straight. (computer mouse clicking)
(powwow drums playing) – [Bear Witness] The very
first thing we ever did with powwow music was just
doing a a live mash-up. And it’s because we had a
grass dance song that was open at the beginning so you
just had straight singing and you could just loop that and then threw a dubstep
instrumental underneath it. You know, it’s like
finding any other sample, like finding a breakbeat
that was like a clean break that was super funky– – [Nahre] Isolated. – that you could sample that was isolated. And it’s slowly grown into
us having this relationship with the drum groups now, where
they give us what we need. (powwow drums playing) – [2oolman] So it’s hitting
off the side of the drum, so it’s a stick. – So those drums that you heard, one of those is in almost every
song that we make (laughs). – [Nahre] So what is a drum circle? LA went to Prior Lake,
Minnesota to find out. (powwow music) – [LA] I met up with Iron Boy, an inter-tribal drum circle
based in Minneapolis. Although they haven’t collaborated
with A Tribe Called Red, they’ve been performing at powwows all over the United States, including what’s considered the
largest powwow in the world, The Gathering of Nations in New Mexico, where they were crowned champions in the Northern Drum Contest in 2015. (drumming and singing) – I’m breathing fast, like… A typical northern drum circle song has a call-and-response structure divided into pushups, or verses. (drumming and singing) The first lead will sing a line, then the group will respond with a chorus. Once the chorus is sung and repeated, the next singer in the
circle takes the lead to start the second pushup. Although the sound might feel traditional, the members of Iron Boy
write their own music, like this song composed by
member Charles Larrabee. – For the most part, I try to visualize the dancers dancing and just
talk about their movements. Like (speaking native
language) is talking about the women’s long braids when they spin you can see them flying. – Y’all got chemistry so
learning something new, it happens quick, you know what
I’m saying? It seemed like? – Well, when there’s something
and I feel like it’s worthy then I’ll send it to the boys. And if it clicks, then we’ll
stick with it, you know? – [LA] This is very similar
to a jazz band setting where we record the
rehearsal, then we send it out to all the homies and we
listen to it in the car, you know what I’m saying, we’re driving and then come back knowing your part. Same, same kind of format. – Basically when you have a song, you kind of have these
basic rules, but you try to bend those rules as much as you can. Like, contemporary music is going to usually use a lot of words. Old school is usually
straight songs not many words just because of there
was a time up until 1978 everything was outlawed so really, you kind of see this movement now. A lot of people are moving
back toward some of those ways, like using words in a
song and stuff like that, a lot of language and taking
pride in that language. – [LA] In 1978, not that
long ago, the US government passed the American Indian
Religious Freedom Act, which aimed to protect the rights of Native Americans to
practice their culture. – Something that we value, our culture, we value it so much that
we’re gonna carry this on until we make our journey
and we’re gonna teach as many young people as
we can along the way. It’s a huge responsibility. You know, this drum here is
very, very, very, very sacred to us and this represents
a grandfather spirit. The drum takes care of us,
we take care of the drum. (drumming and singing) (electric powwow music) – [Bear Witness] You know,
instead of using, like, airhorns or sirens like a
lot of electronic music will we use the calls, powwow calls. (demonstrates powwow calling) – [2oolman] Yeah, we got stuff like this. – Stuff like that that we throw in. (powwow call echoes) – So that’s like our airhorn.
You know what I mean? (electronic music) – [Bear Witness] But
it has the same effect. You’re playing to an indigenous audience, those have the same effect. People react to it the same way. (imitates air horn blasting) – It’s so crazy. I get people who hit me up
all the time and they’re like, “Hey man, do you think you can give me that sound you guys use? “‘Cause I’d really like to play it “at like at a lacrosse game “or something like that back home.” So it’s like, they want to use that as a goal horn, you know what I mean! (laughing) It’s so weird! But that’s where we’re at right now. – [Bear Witness] Replacing
the airhorns and that, that’s just a way of indigenizing
the space that we’re in. – Yeah, we will add a
ton of other instruments. Anything we get our hands on, really. (electronic effects playing) – Like, it goes faster, slower. – Tim made a decision early on
that he wanted all the risers to be self-made, so it’s a lot of stuff that we messed around with in Calgary. – We were in National
Music Centre in Calgary and they have just a bunch of
synths, like a synth museum, but they allow people to
have residencies there. They’ll have access to, basically to almost
every single synth known even the legendary TONTO. (electronic music) – [Nahre] This is TONTO, or The Original New Timbral Orchestra. It was created by Malcolm
Cecil in the early 1970s. The room-sized multi-timbral,
polyphonic, analog, synthesizer was used by many artists including the Isley
Brothers and Stevie Wonder. Only one was ever made
and it now lives in Canada at the National Music
Centre in Calgary, Alberta. (computer mouse clicking) – I can bring up to OG actually. (powwow dance announcer calls)
(powwow drums playing) – [Nahre] I asked 2oolman to break down some of the elements used in
a track they were working on. – So I’m just playing them through. (powwow music plays) (computer mouse clicking) – [2oolman] I just added
some drums to that. (modified music plays) – [2oolman] Yeah, so just added… (modified music plays) – [Nahre] One more element
for the track was found when member of Canadian
Parliament Romeo Saganash delivered a passionate speech
on behalf of indigenous rights to the House of Commons. (electric powwow music) – Why doesn’t the Prime
Minister just say the truth and tell the indigenous peoples that he doesn’t give a
(…) about their rights. – Watching indigenous Twitter
and Instagram and Facebook explode as soon as that
happened was like, okay, this is definitely a moment and I mean we felt that moment ourselves. – You become a part of it. – Yeah, you wanna do something
with it, because, again, like when we first
started making this music it was to make something
that everybody could enjoy and everyone can appreciate but that would be instantly recognizable and identifiable to indigenous people. So to take a moment for indigenous people and then weave it into a song, you know, that’s telling our fans
that this is for you. (eclectic powwow music) – Has there ever been resistance
from an older generation that didn’t understand the combination of
electronic music with powwow? That it’s different to them? – Yeah, I mean, nobody
has ever really told us that we shouldn’t be
doing what we’re doing, but people who don’t
necessarily connect with it have always said that
they see the relevance of what we’re doing because
it’s connecting with youth. So many of us didn’t grow up having people that represented us in
the media, you know. We all kinda go back to
the few little things that were there, you know,
seeing Buffy Sainte-Marie on Sesame Street was a huge one. And I think one of the things that we have an opportunity to do is start to give that to a younger generation that we are out here being
indigenous on our own terms. Not having to be boxed into
something that isn’t us. (electric powwow music) – [Bear Witness] We did a
video for our song “Suplex” about a native wrestler kinda
making it on his own terms. Next thing we knew after
that video came out all these parents were sending
in these different photos of their kids who had made
their own luchador mask, got them to cut the sleeves
off of their jean jackets to look like the wrestler in the video. And so, kind of with us
dreaming about what it would have been like to have
an indigenous representation that was true to who we were growing up, we had given it to a younger generation. Just through our imagining it. (electric powwow music) – [2oolman] In a lot of ways
that we make a lotta music that we have to have a purpose for, it has to service our
community in some shape or form or else it doesn’t make sense to do it. So that’s what drives us
to even create, to perform. It’s just, does it make
sense for our community. That’s the thing. That’s our moral compass that we follow. (electric powwow music)

Roland MC-707 GROOVEBOX: Sound

Roland MC-707 GROOVEBOX: Sound


In this video, we’re going to be talking
about the MC-707 sound engine. The 707 has our latest sound engine that combines modern PCM, virtual analog and sampling
—all in to one box. It features iconic sounds from Roland’s lineage like 808s, 909s, even synth sounds
like Jupiters and Junos and there’s even some digital classics like the XV-5080. There is a massive collection of sounds built into the 707 with things like modern and classic electronic sounds, hybrid sounds, acoustic sounds
like piano and guitar and you could really deeply edit these sounds to suit
your own style. Let’s take a look at the sound browser.
I’m going to select an empty track, select ‘Tone’, and then select ‘Preset’ and I’ll see that it’s broken up into 3 windows. I have the category of sound, I have the way that they are organized and I can scroll through and preview… everything in real-time… without actually having to load it into the session. If I scroll further down the categories,
I can see more acoustic instruments like piano and then if I want to choose the sound, I
can hit ‘Enter’ and now it’s loaded into my session. So let’s hear what I have so far… Now that I’ve imported a sound into the project, I can edit that sound by
going into this ‘Tone’ edit window. Now the way that the MC-707 organizes its sound structure is through partials. You basically get four partials—or in other
words for waveforms—per tone. And so I can see that the first partial is a
sample, the second partial is virtual analog, and the third partial is virtual
analog and the fourth partial is not used. Using the arrow keys I can also
examine other aspects of the sound like the filter, filter type, the VCA, any kind of EQ or FX settings, amongst many other things. So if I want to start editing the sound, I can use things like examining the sample and
then pressing this C4 encoder and looking at the waveforms, I can make
these adjustments to… make the sound a little bit more unique and interesting. For example, maybe playing the sample back in Reverse but keeping the rest of the partials playing back normally. So now I have a little bit more of an
interesting and elaborate sound using a combination both the virtual analog
engine and a sample that I’ve imported previously. Now that we’ve worked on our sound a little bit, let’s take a look at the Advanced view to see where advanced users can go to get really detailed sound editing parameters. So I’ll go into the ‘Tone’ edit view, press ‘Enter’ and I can look at just the sheer amount of options that are available to adjust different things. I can go to where the amp is, I can go to where the partial is for our Bell sample, and I can adjust things like random panning. If I turn that all the way up and play it
back… that specific partial will start panning around the stereo field in a random way whereas leaving the rest of the partials relatively in the center and I can basically craft a sound that’s a little bit more elaborate and interesting to listen to in the context of the song. The MC-707 lets you use presets
and user samples for drum sounds If I go into the ‘Kit’ edit screen, I can see a visual representation of where the pads are. I could do things like select a
drum sound and make my edits like Coarse Tune. And do things like Panning or
Reverb Sends. So if I want to change or exchange a sound out, I can pick the pad, press ‘Enter’, press ‘Select’. I can choose whether it’s a preset
imported from a project, or a user sample. Let’s choose ‘Preset’ for now and here I can browse much like choosing a sound
from the Tone track. So it’s a really convenient way to mix and match different types of drum sounds but for Advanced users, I can go into
the ‘Instrument’ Edit screen and edit almost every aspect of that waveform including layering things by layering multiple drum sounds together we can create some pretty thick types of drum hits and even do things like adjust Filtering, Resonance and other aspects of the sound on an individual level. Like a Tone track, you have up to four sounds that you can layer per drum pad so it really kind of expands
as you dive deeper into it. You know in general it pays to be super curious when you’re using the MC-707 because you’re going to uncover a lot of really cool things that you can do with it, that just don’t exist in other pieces of gear. As you’re building sounds and clips in the MC-707, you can take advantage of a really cool thing
called sound source. If I go back out to the Main view here and
go to the top of the track, and press ‘Enter’, I can see that sound source can be changed from Track meaning that it’s a global sound
used for the entire track, to Clip and that means that for each clip inside one track, I can change the sound or patch that it’s using. This is an excellent way to get variety or longevity when you’re using a project so
if you’re doing a live set, for example, you could play for hours if you’re just using the Clip setting as a means to change the sound. Things can evolve and
things can change over time and all you have to do is use one project to make it happen. So in context, I have this basic sound
that I was using earlier… but with a Clip sound source setting, I
can change it to piano, I can change it to a bell sound, change it back, and when you’re using it across eight different tracks, you can imagine just the sheer amount of variety that you can have with your projects.
