After Favel’s father died last year, she learned that she was the youngest Favel and the last Favel in her lineage to leave a legacy of healing and inspiration in her family. She knows that as the last Favel in her family, her lineage dies with her but she can leave motivational music and stories that can live on forever. The songs and stories Crystal produces are meant to help her move on from a troubled past and make up for the sacrifice her ancestors made to keep the “Favel” name alive. Her digital storytelling has introduced another method to preserve our traditional stories and oral tradition.
Song Titles in “Life After Death” include Reverence Introduction (Spoken Word), Ancestors Lament (Music Composition & Sound Design), Angry Ancestors Crew (Music Composition & Sound Design), Ancestors Revival (Music Composition) & Sound Design), Speaks from the Heart (Storytelling), Forbidden Freedom (Spoken Word), Gitawaa Home Away from Home (Electronic Drum Music), Deep Animism (Electronic Drum Music), Ancestors Revival (Radio Edit) (Electronic Drum Music), Rare Interview with Cree Elder (Storytelling) and Wahayakwe (Electronic Drum Music).
“Life After Death” also showcases Favel’s “Digital Storytelling Featuring Electronic Drum Music” as she is looking to connect with other music composition and sound design projects that require an authentic Indigenous music producer. In turn, Crystal still continues to mentor Aboriginal youth who interested in the Electronica industry as up & coming DJ’s & Music Producers.
