21-day SoundLog Journey during Quarantine-Will you join me?

Updated: May 21, 2020

I will be starting a new project: 21-day Soundlog Journey with Xingyu on Monday, April 13, 2020.


I will be releasing a new video on my Youtube Channel every day at 4 pm EST, featuring fresh music improvisation as a way to reflect my daily experience and connect with you virtually. Depending on my schedule, I will be posting either a video recorded earlier that day or a live stream.


Yes. It is like a journal. Instead of writing words down, I will be creating music, the intentionally organized sound, to capture and reflect on my daily life. I will be using voice, keyboard/piano, percussions, and music software/apps.


To stay in the loop, please subscribe to my Youtube Channel Xingyu Yao, MT-BC and fill out the subscription form to receive updates directly sent to your email.


Looking forward to seeing you there!

Day 11:

With a huge amount of people infected and died from the COVID19, there are still a lot of people refuse to follow the stay-home order. It is frustrating because the lasting impact of the pandemic depends on every single one of us. Please act from empathy and love for everyone and do not let this song apply to you.

I wrote new lyrics to this popular Chinese Pop song by Fish Leong 梁靜茹. The original song is about loss and regret of a relationship. Will some people regret not to follow the preventive measures?

Day 12: I sing a Quarantine Blues, using a poem written by Peter Pitzele on April 24, 2020.

#QuarantineBlues

Quarantine, its solitaire and time is passing slow. Sun or rain I'm keepin' sane with echoes from long ago. I feel like I'm livin' in a house or mirrors, a house of ghosts I know. Reflections pass, my face in the glass and echoes from long ago. quarantine, you know what I mean, time be passin' slow, sun or rain I'm keepin' sane with echoes from long ago. When will the doors open again, when will the streets be filled? Until then I'll swing low with echoes of long ago

My improvisation today is a combination of voice and movement.

Day 21: 21 days pass so fast. Today is the last day of this project and I jammed in GarageBand. I love creating and sharing my sound footprint with you daily. This is what keeps me centered during this chaos. I have several large-scale #virtual recording projects this weekend. Looking forward to what will unfold in the upcoming weeks! #VintageKit #EDM #GarageBand #energy #move #Dance #funky
