Updated: Oct 26, 2020
Have you ever been listening to a song and wondered what story was behind it or how it was created? Have you ever wished to see from the beginning how the music and sounds of a song are composed, the lyrics are written, and how it is all put together?
Stray Kids songs are typically written by the sub group 3RACHA which consist of members BangChan, Changmin and Han. However recently all the members got to work on the creative process through the follow up series to Two Kids Room called Two Kids Song. In this 4 episode series the members split up into teams to make a song. The catch was that all four teams had to use the same music track as the base for their creative song.
In this, the first episode, the 8 members split up into pairs breaking up the usual song writing group. BangChan was with Felix, Changbin with I.N, Han teamed up with LeeKnow, while Hyunjin and Seungmin took on the challenge together.
In the second episode, the different teams begin brainstorming ideas for their song. Changbin and I.N start by developing the concept of their song, while Hyunjin and Seungmin create their melody first. Han and Lee Know decide to use lyrics that Han had already written, and Bang Chan and Felix discussed what they want their song to be about.
It is interesting to see the different ways in which people find their creativity. Comment below what approach you would take or have taken when creating a song!
By the third episode each song starts to take form.
Finally, in the fourth episode, the finishing touches are added and each song is ready to be revealed!
