Beckmans College of Design – Fashion Collaboration – Balaz X Whyred

 

I was asked by Johan Balaz to make the music for his Fashion Collaboration with Whyred. The result was a version of Robyn’s Dancing On My Own which can be heard in this clip at 1:09. The collection was aimed at a “hip stay-at-home dad”, so I wanted to make a soft song which still had some edge. Dancing On My Own has a built in vulnerability and rawness both in its lyrical and melodic content so it’s a great backdrop against a more colorful and corny sound production. I decided to use the pitched-down vocals in order to dehumanize them enough to push the lyrics into the background and keep the collection the main focus of the show.
