Ben’artivist – maskofanark

  • Benjamin Larpent Pires (Student)

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The following report refers to the development of the album “Mask Of Anark”,composed and produced by my alternative identity, Ben’Artivist. The project was organized in four stages of development: first the instrumental production, then the song writing, after that the voice recording and finally the mixing stage, all described in this report. The album presents a wide diversity of musical styles with a noticeable influence of Portuguese Hip-Hop. The message of the project is focused on the destruction of the system in which we are stuck without awareness; an imprisoning system causing the world’s collapse, a melancholic life filled with a sense of rage and lack of social empathy, that leads us to a state of madness. This album is an antisystem manifest, in which the roots of hip-hop are mixed with genres such as dubstep, trap, drill.
