Jolene Khor blurs the lines between life and music. Her artistic compositions dip their toes into a blended reality. Something we would all wish to live in. There is a moment of escapism in her music that helps you forget that your problems are yours alone. Like a cup of coffee in the morning or a ray of sunshine, we get bits of life wrapped up in notes. Her brilliant compositions will change your day. This one is called Journey.
Just like any journey, Jolene Khor whips out a series of notes. Thoughtfully, she curates it all, frame by frame. It is obvious to hear-within just a 2:15 second track, what she aspires to create. She does it successfully as well, you experience it all as full circle. Just like animators, she places more importance in certain seconds of the song, the depth and meaning is understood. With just the title and what she has created, you’re in the seams and fibres of a song that barely requires an introduction. This would sound great for a travel montage or friendship scene, something she definitely might have imagined. There is a niche in artistic views for gems like this. We are subject to some genius.
Her singles Waltz under the Rain and Daybreak have 200k+ and 100k+ streams. Any Studio Ghibli movie, truly, would be a wonderful experience with this music. My Friend Totoro, Spirited Away were some obvious choices. You will be blown away by her music. Follow her for more songs like this!
