Promising a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow


This album is the creative result of two semester-long Independent Studies in Music done during the academic year of 2014. The first semester I academically explored the creation of alter-ego's through sampling in Hip Hip, specifically focusing on Madlib's alter-ego Quasimoto and Quasimoto's debut album, "The Unseen" (available to read here: ). The second semester I took the creative reigns and was tasked with conceiving an alter-ego, using only samples to create a narrative about that personality. The result is "Mr. Utopia's: Promising a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow". The explanation of the albums themes is up to the listener. Explore the appendix of samples, and enjoy! 

Be warned, some of the samples may be unsettling for some.
