In 2010, after winning chances to be on remix compilations, I finally realized my own music style. I gained a particular level of confidence to go for my dream of creating an album. With my newly-discovered style, I started making instrumentals. After several tracks were made, a college roommate once told me that an album of all instrumentals (and no vocals) can sound boring and redundant. This advice prompted me to add vocals to some of the instrumentals that I made. I knew I could rap. So, with me being into science, I wrote and vocalized what is now called Xenon as my first rap song. Then, at the time, I was in a long-distance relationship, but she inspired me to write a song based on the childhood nursery rhyme Starlight. This was the first time I ever sang, and my voice was absolutely terrible at the start. With more practice, I eventually grasped the capability of carrying a tune with my voice.
Once I finished singing Starlight, I felt I had to sing at least one more time on this album which became the vocals for Lunar Nirvana. It was this song where I learned to harmonize with my own voice, and I was really impressed with myself. The harmony made me sound like a barbershop quartet from the 1940s and 1950s. When all of the tracks were done and finalized, I still had to think of an album title. Having so much fun making the album and feeling very confident and proud with my creations, I knew I’d want to make more music after this release. Therefore, this album was Only the Beginning of my music expedition.
