This is a cover of the song "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley, performed by Chicago artist, Claudius Caesar. You will hear many influences throughout this track from both R&B as well as Hip-Hop, giving this track a new life with fresh reharmonization and sophistacated rhythms, as well as a vocoder providing melody throughout.

This track is from the artist, Prism from her single "Void". This is combining synths and vocal "freezing" to create pads and manipulate her voice to create an almost etherial type soundscape throughout this Pop tune.

"Struck Gold" was produced using live musicians as well as virtual instruments to create this pop single for a musical artist. Adam produced this composition and was the main audio engineer responsible for both tracking and mixing all components of this song. This segment is the main chorus of the song.

Chicago jazz and funk band, FuzZz was recorded live at Uptown Recording in a single room, live session. Their song "Swagger" is the last track of a 9 song album and was tracked, produced, and mixed by Adam Bruns.

Using vintage gear and analogue synths, this song is written in the style of 80's movie soundscapes and synthwave influence throughout. Using both Lo-fi and high end production tools creates this aggressive and ominous song.

This is an original track utilizing orchestration, then resampling the song and chopping it up to a new beat. This is a twist on an old hip-hop practice of sampling with modern recording techniques for clarity.
