Project: A collection of Jazz songs inspired by music from the Drum & Bass genre of EDM.
Project Description: 'I am writing a collection of songs inspired by some of my favorite compositions from the Drum & Bass genre of EDM. This music is fun to draw from because it harmonically and rhythmically does not follow traditional jazz trends. As a result, the "solo sections" inspire a different approach to improvisation. The project is titled "Trainspotter" and the definition from the Urban Dictionary is 'A person who hovers around a DJ's turntables and attempts to identify their tracks by label, artist and/or song title.'
