Diploma in Music and Audio Technology
Francine was a student of Singapore polytechnic, who did her Diploma in Music and Audio Technology (DMAT) from the years 2015 – 2018. As an individual who was always keen to learn, she was able to pick up the necessary skills to compose, write and produce music on her own in the 3 years that she has spent in the course. She has written and produced 2 songs for her final year project, titled “Fair Mermaid of Galloway” and “Sleep”.
“Fair Mermaid of Galloway” is a song that was written and arranged in a folk style. The lyrics tell of the dark story based on a traditional Scottish folk tale, “The Mermaid of Galloway”. It is a haunting tale that ends in the protagonist’s death, who incurred the wrath of a mermaid.
“Sleep” is a feel-good song that was written and arranged in a modern pop/rock style, whilst still drawing influences from the classic 80’s. This song is a modern take on the nostalgic 80’s sound that many still love today.
