I was greatly influenced by the sounds and rhythms of each individual artist. It was my goal to convey the unique tempos and beats of their music. Buddy Bolden’s music aligns with the upbeat playfulness of ragtime music. Waller’s music is more charming in a smooth way that reflects the nightclub scene of the 30s. Jason Kao Hwang’s music is completely unconventional and improvisational, which creates an eerie sound with the long notes of his violin.
