[Munhwa news reporter MHN Yoon Ja-hyun/translated by Roh Pooleun] Cloud does not show up himself to the public. Cloud, working with various singers such as Yerin Baek, Car the garden, and Giriboy, is a composer and producer, and he belongs to 'PEACHES LABEL' under MAGIC STRAWBERRY SOUND. SE SO NEON, Sunwoo JungA, and Minsu belong to the agency as well.
I would like to introduce Cloud's mustic story, full of emotion and romance.
Bye bye badman's keyboard
The first appearance of Cloud in front of the public was as Bye Bye Badman's keyboardist Ko Hyung-seok. Bye Bye Badman is a band of five members who met in high school and love music. After debuting with 'Bye Bye Badman' in 2011, passing the aim of Britpop, the band released three EPs, two regular albums, and five singles, and became noticed to the public as a band that performs love and youth. In the third EP 'Your Wave' released in 2017, Cloud was in charge of mastering and producing. Bye Bye Badman released stylish and mature music for each album.
Composer of CHEEZE
CHEEZE, which began with the release of the first digital single 'Home Alone' in 2011 as a four-person band in the lead of Cloud, became a duet of Cloud and Dal-chong after 2 members left for military service in 2014. Cloud produced songs such as 'Madeline Love' and 'Mood Indigo', and was in charge of composition, arrangement, and production in the group. Since then, Cloud has taken a step back as a cheese member in 2017 for solo activities and producing.
Vocal of Cloud
From November 14, 2016 to March 18, 2017, Cloud released a single album in the 'Cloud series'. Based on the songs that were previously composed, he released four songs, 'Better People', 'Keep going forward as I have done', 'I don't know' and 'Mafia'. He showed his rich talents in composing, writing, producing, recording, mixing, and mastering as a composer.
Producer of Yerin Baek
In 2015, with the album “FRANK,” Cloud appeared with singer Yerin Baek. In the album composed of six tracks, Cloud was in charge of arranging the whole song, and he also participated in some compositions and lyrics. The title song of the “FRANK” album “Across The Universe” and the title song of the “BYE BYE MY BLUE” album “BYE BYE MY BLUE” are all composed by Cloud. Although the release of Yerin Baek's album hasn't been around for a while, Cloud has been performing music activities with Yerin Baek based on Soundcloud and performances. Subsequently, JYP agency released 'OUR LOVE IS GREAT' album and BLUE VINYL agency released their first solo album 'Every Letter I sent you'. During this period, Cloud was responsible for keyboard performance, bass performance, MIDI programming, production, recorder, mixing, and mastering, and supported Yerin Baek's musical activities.
Ryu Seokwon's sound engineer
Ko hyeong-seok is the real name of Cloud. From 2019 singer Ryu Seok-won's second EP, 'Uncared Heart', two singles and three EPs, Cloud was in charge of mixing and mastering in Ryu Seokwon's work. Cloud has been using the stage name 'Cloud' in his work so far, but when he reached the album in 2019, he used his real name 'Go Hyeongseok'.
Clouds make the blue sky stand out. There are times when a few white clouds in a blue sky are more noticeable than clouds. Cloud has always spoken to the public as an arranger, performer, mastering engineer, and producer. The producer of music is like the general director of the film. As some movies are seen by the reputation of the director's abilities, sometimes looking for a producer rather than a singer to listen to a song seems to bring an accidental luck in finding personal music tastes.
'Cloud', music producer of Yerin Baek, who is he?
