We had the opportunity to chat with Cyazon about the creative process, inspiration, challenges, and production techniques behind the making of ‘Digital Fractals,’ and we talk about Cyazon’s insights into the making of the track, his vision for creating conceptual, story-like music that listeners can relate to, and what he hopes his listeners take away from his music.
Hey Cyazon! How are you?
Hey! Doing good thanks!
Can you walk us through your creative process for your latest release ‘Digital Fractals’?
I remember when I finished this track one year ago, that I used basses and glitch sounds I already made before to create the drop/chorus. I worked linearly about every 2 bars to create an interesting bass arrangement pattern. From my memory, I started with the intro and worked linearly to finish the track. I remember one of the last additions to this track was the first breakdown synth melody since it needed something to fill the empty space during that section.
Can you tell us, what inspired you to produce this track?
I wrote my previous tracks I released this year, ‘Tech’ and ‘The Future’, around the same time I produced ‘Digital Fractals’ so I was inspired to create a futuristic track similar to those tracks so I could create a package of music to pitch to labels.
How long did it take you to finish this track from start to finish?
At the time last year, it probably took 1 week maximum to finish this track.
Can you tell us about any challenges you faced while creating ‘Digital Fractals’?
Probably one of the challenges that remains consistent when creating a track like this is making the drops/choruses and arranging the basses and glitch sounds in a way that is musically pleasing. Also, figuring out the right sounds to use was a challenge too.
How did you decide on the track’s structure and arrangement?
Mainly through trial and error and seeing what works is how I decided on the drop/chorus structure and arrangement. Figuring out the intro, buildups and breakdowns after the drops was the easiest part to structure, since I already knew where each section needed to be while I was working on the track. Most of the intro and breakdowns has melodic elements and effects.
Can you tell us about any special effects or production techniques you used in this track?
Here are a few production techniques I can talk about. The last 3 seconds before both of the drops, I used a frequency shifter, and I automated it with a slope to pitch up to the exact key of the song and then pitch down a few octaves to a frequency to match the exact key too. Another production technique I used was re-using one of the main synth melodies from the intro, and using that same melody with a bass before the drop. It helps keep the track cohesive and memorable.
How do you feel about the track now that it’s completed and released?
I’m satisfied that it’s released now and it helped keep my release schedule consistent, but now I’m ready to move on to releasing the next track and get more unreleased music placed on labels this year.
What kind of atmosphere or image were you trying to create with this track?
The main atmosphere I wanted to create is a track that sounds futuristic and cyberpunk, and that is portrayed by the main basses in the drops/choruses.
How do you approach promoting your music and getting it out to a wider audience?
Right now, my team handles promoting my music by getting placed on various blogs, Spotify playlisting, and Soundcloud promotion.
What do you hope listeners take away from your music?
I hope that people can see the story I’m telling with my music, in which I’m the main character and there are different characters and scenes/plots like a movie. I also hope that listeners can relate with my music on an emotional level and that it can help them. One goal I continue to work towards is making conceptual, story-like music, which listeners can follow along with the story with every track released after the other.
It’s clear that Cyazon’s passion for creating music that tells a story and resonates with listeners is at the heart of his work, his attention to detail and dedication to his craft have resulted in a track that showcases his unique sound and style. We thank Cyazon for taking the time to chat with us and wish him all the best with his upcoming releases and future projects.
