<뉴 얼라이벌> 뮤지션 카키
Editor Comment 2020년이 도래했다. 최근 오스카에서 전대미문의 기록을 세운 영화감독 봉준호는 2020년을 두고 이렇게 말했다. “그 자체로 마치 공상과학 영화에 나올법한 숫자다.” 같은 숫자가 병치된 까닭에 유독 미래적이고 의지 다분하며, 진보적인 기운이 넘치는 올해는 이번 생에 두 번 다시 없을 기이한 연도가 아닌가. 한결 파릇해진 삶의 자유의지가 꿈틀거리는 지금, 우리는 에너지와 영감을 찾아 미디어 속을 사방으로 탐색한다. 그러다 이내 무형의 콘텐츠에서 가장 큰 힘을 얻게 된다. 이를테면, 음악. 그것이야말로 인류 탄생 이후 기쁨, 슬픔, 위로, 사랑 그리고 자기표현의 가장 큰 원천일 테다. 10 자리가 바뀐 세상은 퓨처리즘을 외치지만, 결국 우리는 가장 오래된 것을 통해 미래를 그린다. 올해 첫 <뉴 얼라이벌>은 ‘음악’이라는 유산으로 2020년의 문을 두드리는 뮤지션 카키(Khakii)의 이야기를 담았다. 늘 그렇듯, 아직 잘 알려지진 않았지만 주목할 만한 가치가 있기에. 뮤지션 카키 Q. 콜드(Colde)가 이끄는 레이블인 웨이비(WAVY) 소속이다. 카키는 지난해 그곳에 합류했다고 알고 있는데, 어떻게 연을 맺게 되었나. 사실 콜드와 처음 만나게 된 건 초등학생 때다. 고등학교 시절에는 각자 좋은 음악을 디깅하면 MP3나 아이팟에 담아서 들려주고, 매일 붙어있다시피 했다. 시간이 흘러 성인이 되고 의경으로 군입대를 하게 됐는데, 문득 지금이 아니면 음악을 못 할 것 같다는 생각이 들더라. 그렇게 무작정 장비를 사고 작업물을 만드는 데 시간을 보냈다. 그게 4년 전 일이다. [BASS]라는 곡을 만들고 합류하기까지는 3년이 넘게 걸렸다. 무엇보다 스스로 정한 기준에 부합하기 위해 고민하며 다듬고 다듬다 보니 오래 걸리게 됐다. Q. 비유하자면 웨이비는 파스텔 톤 팔레트 같다. 그들의 음악은 파스텔로 부드러이 완성한 작품 같달까. 최근엔 자신만의 음악 세계를 펼치는 아티스트들을 영입해 색채의 스펙트럼을 넓히고 있는 것 같은데, 카키도 그중 하나라고 보면 되나. 맞다. 웨이비는 고급스러우면서도 위트 있고, 깊으면서도 무겁지 않은 음악들을 선보였다. 내 음악은 그보다 조금 더 찐득하다고 하면 적절한 표현일까. 파스텔톤 팔레트에 카키 같은 딥한 컬러가 추가됐다고 봐주면 된다. Q. 카키라는 이름은 어떻게 탄생하게 되었나. 많이들 궁금해한다. 첫 번째 이유는 단순하다. 내가 좋아하는 색이다. 두 번째는 스나이퍼가 위장해서 한방을 노릴 때 카모플라주 패턴을 사용하지 않나. 그 패턴을 구성하는 색인 카키에서 따온 것이다. 일상에서는 구멍이 많은 사람이지만, 음악을 다룰 땐 저격수처럼 명중을 위해 숨죽이고 행동하는 부분이 닮은 구석이랄까. Q. 대부분 EP나 정규를 내기 전에 사운드클라우드와 같은플랫폼들을통해 자신의 곡을 아카이빙 하지 않나. 카키는 싱글 발매 전까지 아무런 모습도 드러내지 않았으니, 갑자기 등장한 것 같기도 하고. 사운드클라우드라는 플랫폼이 소비가 많이 되다 보니, 오히려 자신의 무기를 공유 가능케해주는 역할로서 쇠약해졌다고 판단이 들었다. 그래서 첫 등장의 경로로 염두에 두지 않았다. 탄탄히 준비한 작업물을 아껴둔 거다. 계획적이었다고 볼 수 있다. Q. 그래서인지 리스너들은 데뷔 싱글 [BASS]로 당신을 정의했을 수도 있다. 주변 반응이 궁금하다. 예상보다 많은 분이 좋아해 주셔서 놀랐다. 현재 음악 시장의 주류와는 거리가 있는 곡이라 꽤 걱정했던 것이 사실이다. 카키만의 방식대로 해석한 곡이라는 피드백이 있더라. 그런 긍정적인 코멘트가 에너지가 됐다. 그중 멋있는 캐릭터가 등장했다는 말이 내심 제일 좋았다. Q. 사실 [BASS]를 처음 들었을 땐, 그루비한 비트를 타고 노래하기에 당신을 래퍼로 소개하기보단 뮤지션이라는 수식어를 붙이는 게 더 어울린다고 생각했다. 뮤지션이 맞는 것 같다. 사실 곡의 톤에 신경을 많이 썼는데 알아봐 줘서 감사할 따름이다. 훅과 벌스, 아웃트로의 음색을 다르게 설정했다. 그래서 그루비하고 멜로디컬하다고 느껴지면 그게 맞다. 그리고 비트, 이번 곡에서 가장 마음에 드는 부분이다. 나의 테이스트를 잘 알고, 자신의 색도 조화롭게 입혀준 스탤리(Stally)형의 공이 컸다. 형 사랑해. Q. 콜드와 작업한 원곡 이후 릴러말즈(Leellamarz), 안병웅(An ByeongWoong)과 함께한 [BASS] Remix는 셋의 벌스로 곡 분위기를 다분히 바꿔놓은 것 같다. 어떻게 성사된 것인가. 신기한 일화가 있다. 한창 릴러말즈의 음악을 많이 들었던 [BASS] 마무리 작업 즈음 아프로(APRO)형 작업실에 놀러 간 적이 있는데, 마침 릴러말즈가 앨범 작업 차 그곳에 있더라. 초면이었지만 정말 반가웠다. 그 계기로 바로 리믹스를 함께 하자고 권유했다. 그렇게 된 거다. 병웅이는 쇼미더머니에서 보여준 클래식하고 탄탄한 랩 스타일이 인상 깊었다. 리믹스 준비과정에서 그 친구를 일 순위에 두고 섭외 연락을 했는데, 흔쾌히 응해줬다. 그렇게 셋이 만나 각자의 스타일을 잘 배합한 [BASS] 리믹스가 탄생하게 됐다. Q. 화보 촬영 전에 새 싱글 [LAZY]를 공개했다. 비교적 이전 곡보다 비트와 랩 간격이 타이트해진 것 같다. 확실히 래퍼의 면모를 보여준 듯하다. 그렇다. [LAZY]는 랩적인 부분에 더 집중한 곡이다. 머리를 비울수록 크리에이티브해질 수 있다는 곡 주제처럼 가사도 최대한 의식의 흐름대로 구성하고. 대신 플로우나 리듬으로 재미를 주고 싶었는데, 그 부분을 랩과 함께 신경 쓰다 보니 그렇게 들리는 이유인 듯하다. 또, 나 [BASS]처럼 무드 있는 것만 잘하는 놈 아니다는 것도 보여주고 싶었고. Q. [LAZY] 뮤직비디오에는 명료한 컬러들의 대치가 눈에 띈다. 카키의 가면을 쓴 여러 인물도 등장하고. 어떤 메시지를 담고 있나. 음악을 시각적으로 표현할 수 있는 힘이 뮤직비디오다. 그래서 곡을 만들 때 만큼의 에너지를 쏟았다. 연출을 맡은 신요하 감독님 작업실에서 1주 넘게 밤을 새우며, 아이디어를 주고받고, 작은 소품부터 스케줄링까지 모두 직접 참여했다. 요하 감독님이 가사를 보고선 언터쳐블한 태도가 느껴지니 그걸 결벽증이란 키워드로 풀어내면 어떨까 하고 제작에 들어갔다. 결벽증 환자는 타인의 손길을 거부하지 않나. 나 또한 누구도 터치할 수 없는 사람이라는 것을 표현하고 싶었고, 그 일종의 내러티브를 보여주기 위한 장치로 뮤직비디오 속에 명료한 색조들을 대치했다. 컬러마다 의미는 해석하기 나름이다. 파란 배경에 등장하는 나는 사람들이 보는 카키의 모습이고, 흰 배경에 등장하는 나는 내 머릿속 나 자신의 모습이라고 해석해준 친구도 있고. 또, 가면을 씌운 엑스트라를 등장시킨 이유는 ‘너와 나는 다르다’라는 것을 직관적으로 표현하기 위함이었다. 개인적으로 가장 마음에 드는 신이다. Q. 가사에서 스탠리 큐브릭(Stanley Kubrick)이 언급되더라. 꽤 반가웠다. 평소 큐브릭의 팬이라고? 그는 전작에서 벗어나 늘 새로운 장르를 개척하는 정말 멋진 영화감독이다. 사실 그 라인을 쓸 때 “내가 감히 큐브릭을 언급해도 되는 걸까?” 하며 썼다 지우기를 반복한 기억이 있다. 그만큼 나에게는 독보적인 존재랄까. 아, 그의 작품 <2001 스페이스 오디세이>와 <샤이닝>을 감상 전이라면, 꼭 보길 추천한다. Q. 큐브릭은 영화계에서 전인미답의 형식미와 특정 장르의 신기원을 이룩하고는 했다. 그 역시 뛰어난 테크니션이었고, 특유의 모호성으로 장르의 경계를 두지 않는다는 점에서 카키와 닮은 것 같다. 앞으로는 더 놀랄 포인트들이 많을 거다. “얘가 그 카키라고?” 하는 음악을 할 생각이다. 장르를 유유히 넘나드는 폭넓은 모습을 보여주고 싶다. 꼭 그럴 수 있도록 더 깊게 연구하고, 더 창의적으로 움직일 셈이다. 올해를 두 달밖에 보내지 않았지만, 2020년에 들은 말 중 가장 영광스러운 말이다. Q. 같이 작업하고 싶은 아티스트나 뮤직비디오에 세우고 싶은 뮤즈가 있나. pH-1, 빈지노(Beenzino), 펀치넬로(punchnello), 짱유(JJANGYOU), 헤이즈(Heize) 그리고 유라(youra)까지. 같이 작업하고 싶은 아티스트가 정말 많다. 제일 동경하는 뮤지션은 에이셉 라키(A$AP Rocky). 정말 비현실적이겠지만, 기회가 된다면 뮤직비디오에 함께 하고 싶다. 또 한 사람을 꼽자면 나를 꿈꾸게 한, 이제는 세상을 떠난 맥 밀러(Mac Miller)다. 팬으로서 그와 함께할 수 없다는 것은 큰 비극이다. Q. 음악이라는 분야를 제외하고, 관심 있는 길이 있나. 두 번의 촬영을 진행했는데 굉장히 재능있는 친구라고 느껴졌다. 일하면서 알게 된 사실 중 하나가 내가 찍히는 걸 좋아한다는 것이다. 포즈를 취하고, 표정 연기를 하고. 즐거운 마음이 정말 크다. 피사체가 되고 싶은 마음과 동시에 비주얼을 제작하고 싶은 욕심도 있다. 다큐멘터리라든지, 쇼트 필름이라든지 창작에 대한 러프한 생각은 있다. 혼자서는 무리일 테고, 조력자 있다면 가능하지 않을까. Q. 지금 당신을 지탱하는 힘은 어디서 오는 건가. 현실에 대한 불만족감. 더 나아가고 싶고, 더 변화하고 싶다. 음악을 포함한 모든 분야에서 재능있는 친구들이 정말 많다. 그들을 보면 부끄러운 마음이 드는 건 어쩔 수 없다. 그 마음에 비롯된 원동력이 나를 움직이게 만든다. 그리고 내 친구들. 늘 대화하고 함께 고민하고 이윽고 더 나은 길을 찾게 해주는 그들이 나를 지탱하는 힘이다. Q. 뻔한 질문이다. 또래로서, 그리고 창작의 길을 걷는 동지로서, 카키의 요즘 고민이 궁금하다. 사실 고민이 너무 많다. 뮤지션 카키가 아닌 20대 중턱에 선 또래 최희태는 서울이 아닌 다른 곳의 풍광을 좀 더 향유하고 싶다는 갈증이 있고, 소중한 사람들과의 시간을 소홀히 한 건 아닐까 하는 그런 평범한 고민을 한다. 또 본업으로 돌아간 내 모습을 보면, 늘 긴장하고 부끄러워한다. 최근 가장 큰 고민은 카키라는 키워드는 뭘까라는 것. 나만의 키워드를 갖기 위해 매 연구하지만 쉽지 않다. Q. 2020년대의 주역은 90년 대생이 아닌가. 카키도 그 라인업의 한 사람이고, 모두 중요한 문제를 품고 있다. 카키는 지금 어디까지 왔나. 앞으로 어디까지 갈 텐가. 지금이 딱 출발점이다. 이제 시작이고, 모든 게 새로운 기분이다. 어디까지 갈 텐가의 질문은 다시[BASS]의 훅으로 돌아간다. ‘butterfly-effect baby watch out, that BASS, gonna make the wave’ 그 노랫말처럼 더 크게, 그리고 계속 흐르고 싶다. 파도는 안 닿는 곳이 없으니까. 아프리카 그리고 동유럽에서도 내 음악을 들을 수 있을 때까지. 전 세계에 녹아들고 싶다는 것이 바람이라면 바람이다. 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서

Want To Write A Song? Here's How!
Musicians are strange creatures, cursed with melodies spinning around in their heads constantly. It's hard to recognize what words are brilliant lyrics, or just fleeting thoughts. The mind of a musician is a jumbled mess, with little bits and pieces of melodies and broken love songs constantly dragging behind them. My newest effort premieres at the end of this post! So stay tuned if you want to learn how to write music, and where these tips can get you. This card was inspired by @buddyesd and our conversations about music and songwriting over the past few days. 1. The first step is to know your music! Videos: Some of my favorites. I've been a musician my whole life. I started singing in my terrible two's and ended up getting a guitar at age 11 and starting my first rock band at 12. My life has always centered on what band I was obsessed with at the time. It all started with Green Day... Then the Ramones... Then My Chemical Romance... Thirty Seconds To Mars... The Sex Pistols... The Libertines... Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Pete Doherty and on and on. And so on and so fourth. The point I'm trying to make here, is that you have to go through a lot of music to gain the inspiration and the fortitude to start making your own. Influences are a huge part of songwriting. They help you form what kind of identity you want as an artist. 2. Know that the perfect song won't come overnight. Your development takes time! (Video 1: One of the first songs I ever wrote (2009) "The Way You Talk" / tried and true pop-punk) (Video 2: A later rock song, 2014 "Tourist" a little more sophisticated, deeper lyrics, more passion, messy garage-rock feel) I didn't wake up and just know how to play the guitar and write songs, it took time. I sat in my room for hours on end, plucking away, humming, writing down and recording things and ultimately a lot of the stuff I wrote early on was complete shit. It just now, feels like I'm writing really meaningful stuff. So, just give yourself some time, and know that every musician goes through an evolution at every level. I started out writing simple, three chord punk songs in the vein of Green Day, my favorite band. That slowly evolved into more anthemic and stadium-like tunes when I started getting into bands like The Rolling Stones, U2 and so fourth... Now I've evolved into this heart-wrenching raw, indie influenced folk-y sound that is directly linked to my love for Pete Doherty's solo album Grace / Wastelands, a collection of melancholy tracks dedicated to love and confusion. My new song, Counselor (heard here), is a haunting acoustic ballad influenced by more singer / songwriter acts since I'm solo right now. So things have to evolve with the times. 3. Do some research. You have to know where you came from in order to know where you can go. This being said, every musician's routine is different. I just like to pick up my guitar, start strumming a few chords and a melody or lyric will come, and I'll go from there. Some people sit at a keyboard and bang out a melody, Others just jam and find a chord progression they like, to start with and build a melody on top of it. If you're not that experienced, you have to do some research. Look up the greats: Lennon and McCartney, Richards and Jagger. The classics are a great way to look at song structure. Then, look up your favorite artist's songwriting routines and experiment with them, mix and match styles until you feel like you can get somewhere. Like the lead singer of Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrong writes his melodies first, lyrics later. Both come at once for me, melody and lyric, almost always. So it just depends on how your brain works, and you won't know until you try. 4. JUST GO FOR IT!!! Music isn't perfect and most of the time it isn't beautiful or polished. So if you want to start creating your own, just start doing it. Hum melodies, listen to your favorite artists, pick up an instrument and do it! If you have the passion and you want to learn, anything is possible. I'm here to help too, if you have any questions or thoughts. Do not be afraid, because you could write the next number one single in your bedroom...you never know ;)! My newest song, written and recorded on August 12th, 2015 is up on Sound Cloud now, here's the link if you're interested. See! Songwriting isn't hard! ;) "Lying To The Wind" By: Tess Stevens
Jungkook No Longer Baby Boy (+19)
Que tal peeps! WE ARE STILL COUNTING DOWN TO JUNGKOOK'S BIRTHDAY IN THE AMS COMMUNITY. THIS IS A QUICK FANFICTION THAT CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT! Jungkook has always been like a little brother to you and you always looked after him, especially when the guys picked in him. You were planning a special birthday surprise for him with the guys. "He should be happy he gets a cake." Yoongi scuffed. "Well well now lets not be too mean Yoongi...he is the youngest." I said while writing down ideas. You and the guys came up with a plan. You and Jin would bake a cake and cook food. Hobi and Tae would clean up while Namjoon and Yoongi decorated. "Namjoon please don't break anything." Hobi laughed. Namjoon rolled his eyes and laughed. The next day it was super hot in the office and all you wanted to fo was take a shower. You rushed home and jumped into the shower. Jin would be shopping for food with Namjoon while the others bought decorations. Jungkook would be at the library volunteering so everything should be finished then. The water felt so good as you allowed it to hit your skin. You had your relaxing body wash. You inhaled the lavender scent and lathered up your body sponge. You began cleaning and singing when you seen a pair of eyes looking in the small crack of the door. You paused thinking you seen something else. You didn't know if your mind was playing tricks on you. Then you looked back and no one was there. You finisjef showering and walked down to your room. You noticed Jungkook's door was cracked. This was strange cuz he always locks his door. You pay no mind and get dressed. The crew arrived and you all get to preparing the surprise birthday for Jungkook. You were pleased how everything played out. Namjoon only broke 3 things which is good. You walked to your room to get an extra present you brought for Jungkook when you noticed your pantry drawer was opened. Your neatly arranged panties were all a mess. You picked up the present wrapped in shiny red wrapper and seen that Jungkook's door was cracked wider. You walked down the hall and heard odd noises. "Yass gosh noona..." You peeped your head in without makjng a sound and saw Jungkook with your panties in his hand. He was licking a pink pair with a red pair wrapped around his man hood. Jungkook was stroking himself. You found yourself shook for a moment. But then you began watching out of enjoyment. Your breathing goth heavier. Jungkook slowly his hand motion and grinned. "I know you are watching me noona." You covered ur mouth. But a gasp escaped ur wet lips. "Jungkook why do you have my panties? "Noona you know I want you. I made that clear last week when I spanked the hell out of you. Remember you made me promise not to tell." You walked into his room and closed the door. "Shh boy that was a mistake." "A mistake?" Jungkook said while raising his eyebrow. He smiled while looking at the gift I had. "Nice wrapping but do you know what I really want noona?" Jungkook smirked. Jungkook walked closer to be still hard as a brick and stood behind me allowing his hard on to rub between by cheeks. He let out a groan. "I know you been with all the guys nonna, they brag about it. I want you now." Jungkook said. "Jungkook...look those days are behind me. I'm no longer group banging trash." "Okay I will just spread the word at work." Jungkook laughed. "Fine Jungkook." I hissed. Jungkook pushed me on my stomach while sliding my shorts to the side. He was happy to see I had in no panties. He stuffed a pair or my panties he had in my mouth and plunged deep inside me without mercy. The pink wet panties muffled my scream of pleasure. Jungkook pounded me hard and fast. "Noona you were all wet from watching me?" Jungkook smacked my butt hard. "ANSWER me. You like watching me wack off?" I nodded as he pulled me hard into him. He switched so we were facing the mirror and began pounding me hard hitting all my spots. "Look at that little face. You love it noona. Yoongi said you like it rough." I surprised Jungkook and pusjed him back on his butt. I climbed on top of him. "You gotta do more to get me off little baby boy." I said while grinning. I began riding him hard and fast while pulling his hair. He began sucking my right breast as I rode him. "Yass that's a good baby boy." I moaned. I could see he was coming to the edge and so was I. The room echoed of slapping skin. "Noona yasss! Oh shit!" Jungkook moaned while exploded in me. The explosion made me go over the edge. My vision was so blurry. Suddenly the crew busted in "Happy Birthday Jungkook!" "Shit looks like we got to the party late." Yoongi blurted.

Guitar Photography Challenges - White Guitars
Cat in the photo aside - the challenges of shooting a white object in any situation can test even a seasoned photographer. Shooting in any digital format completely complicates the situation for digital is prone to blowing out (losing detail) in hot/white areas. A good rule of thumb - which I learned in cinematography school ( I was fortunate to have learned both digital and film - I went to school just as the digital technology was gaining momentum in the film industry) - that rule is if shooting film it's better to slightly over-expose than under-expose and digital is the opposite; it's better to under-expose than over-expose. Film needs light to make the halides react and capture an image. Over exposed film can be pulled back down. Digital technology's main weakness is the loss of detail if the sensor is over-exposed. It's easier to pull under-exposed digital images up - noting that you're going to get a lot more grain and color artifacts - than to work with an image that was over-exposed because with digital an over-exposed image has NO detail to work with. I use an incident meter for reading the light in studio instead of my camera's spot meter. The difference between a spot meter (which meters the light reflected from one area of the subject you are shooting) and an incident meter (which reads the amount of light falling on the subject from the light source) - is that reflected light is affected by the color, texture, and position of the object it is read from and an incident meter will give you a general reading of the light all around the subject. This is very handy for lighting a green screen, which must be uniformly lit. Think of the incident meter as giving you a great average place for your camera settings - to ensure you'll get the best (most "normal") exposure. BTW - "Normal Exposure" is a photography term - an image which is shot with normal exposure will have details in the brightest and darkest areas of the frame. No black shadows without detail, no bright highlights without detail. Another MAJOR consideration is shadows. You can mask the shadows from the bridge and knobs on a guitar that's stained or finished in a darker color. But white? It's nearly impossible to shoot the image without some shadows (unless the guitar is inside a light box). By shooting the image with the incident meter I get a medium point for exposure where I won't blow the whites out or get the dark areas too murky - and this makes cleaning the guitar up in Photoshop much easier. The last thing to consider is the purpose of the photos... if you are shooting them for a catalog, you want straight, clean, non-distorted images. In this application I use a 50mm lens with zero distortion along the edges. I center the lens at 90 degrees from the plane of the fingerboard/neck - and I place the lens in the center of the guitar - usually around 5 inches above the neck/body joint. If you are shooting images for a magazine (editorial) or a coffee table book - then you may choose to augment the unique design features of the guitar's design. I shot these photos for a book on vintage/classic guitars. For this reason I chose to use the shadows to bring out design details such as the joint between the neck and the body and the "Made in USA" stamp which is gently indented into the wood under the finish on the back of the headstock. Lastly I chose to use a Panagor Macro Adaptor (it fits onto the camera and the lens attaches to it - it has it's own focus ring and aperture) - to shoot extreme close-up images - macro shots) but limiting focus to a few millimeters. This is called selective focus and it allows you more control over the composition. The human eye - controlled by the human brain - will automatically move to the area of focus in a photograph. By carefully selecting the area that is in focus you ensure the image is presented and received with the content you've selected being the undisputed focal point of the photo. I hope these little tips help. Happy shooting! And if you shoot some guitar photos and would like to share them with me, please tag me in your card!
