Un, deux, trois. Not only is that how to count to three in French, but those are also the names of three songs produced by Arjun Swarup (12). Swarup describes his music as something that one might listen to on a rainy day: a piece that is dark, moody, or sometimes jazzy. 

Swarup used to make music that was similar to hip hop but has since transitioned to creating pieces that his friends can rap over, he said. Swarup’s friend, Ben Jacobs (12), first exposed him to music production during middle school using an iPad and helped inspire Swarup to continue producing music, Swarup said. 

“A lot of what I make depends on the mood that I’m in,” Swarup said. “If I’m feeling a little down, that’s sometimes when my best sadder sounding tracks come out.” 

Swarup has collaborated with Ethan Matt (12) and produced the music for Matt’s single, “Digital Love.” 

The message that Swarup would like to get across in his work is that he is having a good time making his music, he said. 

In college, Swarup plans to continue producing music for fun and looks forward to being able to use his university’s music resources and recording studios, he said.
