the word 'dynamic' best suits me
Although I find the notion of a word determining the characteristic of one's personality inherently uncharacteristic of me, I feel the word 'dynamic' best suits me and my ever-growing ambitions. Although some would appreciate being present in a static equilibrium with minimised unpredictability, I always possessed the mentality to sought for more and to never settle.
This was exemplified by my near-obsession with music and audio engineering, which was ignited by my 14th birthday gift; a piano keyboard. Within the span of two years, my eager teenage self uncovered the inner quirks of a keyboard by observing others play and by imitating youtube covers to eventually master over full 10 musical pieces.
But my curiosity for the extent of musical potential didn't stop there. In 9th grade, as part of the curriculum I was introduced to Midi, an interface used to display, alter and capture musical notes being played on a keyboard. For the final quarter, we were given a task to use a Midi software to compose a modern pop song. Although most viewed this as merely an assignment, I continued enhancing my comprehension on musical theory, composition and implementation through software, which led me to ultimately utilize this developing skill in both my 10th grade music portfolio, as well as my personal project.
As recently as this year, I've further expanded on the concept of audio manipulation through softwares, by having the concept of 'Doppler Shift' as my core Extended Essay concept, which allowed me to research into audio spectral analysis using multiple software.
