2013 Comebuy brand promotion

 

All sounds on the video came from an actual store of the drink franchise Comebuy. In fact, the recording and the music video were made by setting up an entire store in Mega Studio, one of the largest studios in Taipei. In keeping with the brand’s motto “Fresh and colorful,” I wanted the audience to hear the sound of the drinks being made, and the coffee machine, syrup machine, plastic cups and containers available in all its stores were used as instruments, in the form sampling or performance by DJ, drummer, and beatboxer. Most notably, by adding a plastic cup I designed a custom wobble talkbox for the beatboxer, who could then easily manipulate sounds by hand movements, such as covering or opening the cup, to produce a wobble bass effect.

 

The video has played in all the franchise’s stores since 2013 and its reception has been enthusiastic, leading to invitations for live performance. What I aimed to do with this piece, in addition to promoting the brand, was to bring a new awareness of objects in our immediate surroundings.

I co-produced this track with well-known DJ/producer Xuan Liu. Liu wrote the melody, I made the arrangement, and Ying-Ying Shih, one of the best jazz singers in Taiwan, was invited to join the project.

 

To the Chinese and English lyrics, I added segments of traditional Peking opera and jazz music from Shanghai in the 1930s, blending more than one hundred samples into a funky groove to build up the arrangement. I also scratched the melody of the Peking opera as a interlude solo.

 

In the music video, I was a DJ who travelled through space and time, symbolizing the essence of this cross-genre piece. Image of the DJ performing scratching was meant to highlight the connection between remix and the cross-genre style.
