1. I did this project for my Digital Media Design class at my college. My teacher wanted us to record ourselves reading a children's book and add the sound effects to it.

    The children's book I chose was called "Corky's Hiccups" by Nicolete Meredith Stack, Illustrated by Tom O'Sullivan.

    All the sound effects, narration, editing & mixing, automation and the voice-overs were me and my friend Masaki (myspace.com/gambattemusic).

    Music includes "Good Morning" & "Key of Life" by Khari Lemuel (myspace.com/lemuelism), and "The Big Payback" by James Brown.

  2. I basically took pictures of the 7th floor hallway of my college (Columbia College Chicago) during the Fall and used the song "Swimmer" by Caroline as a soundtrack to this stop motion like video.

    Enjoy :-D

  5. I recorded everything that I saw when I was on the train heading to school with my digital camera. It was a spear the moment type of thing.

    A couple of months later, I did this DJ mixing of songs that me and my friends did with the original songs that my friend "Psychotic" sampled to make the beat.

    The first original is from Francis Lai & Danielle Licari with the song "Snow frolic" from the Love Story soundtrack. This song will lead to our song "THE GO" which is an ode to home Chicago.

    The second original song is "World is a Ghetto" by WAR from the album World is a Ghetto. Then, it would mix in to our song "World's A Ghetto" which talks about the issues happening in the ghetto not just in our city but in America and possibly the world.

    I did this just for fun and I'm proud of this video because the music fit well with it.

    Peace & 1 Love 2 U

I'm born and raised on the southside of Chicago, I go by the name BIG jon or FATBOY. I'm an aspiring music producer and I want my music to be heard. All of my music is made just on my computer. NO music studio, NO drum machine, just a music program and my brain. Even though I grew up in an area where everyone that I know are thugs, drug dealers and addicts, I don't live my life that way. The only thing that keeps me focus is music.
