Xdinary Heroes’ O.de’s Music Taste
O.de is in charge of the band’s effects, also known as the synthesizer. If there is an effect sound in the song, O.de samples it, puts it on the keyboard, and plays it. If Jungsu’s piano performance is standard, O.de tends to make the sound more mechanical or cool when it comes to stage performances.
O.de learned the keyboard so much that he can’t even remember it when he was very young, and he hasn’t played it since then, but he started learning it about a year and a half after joining JYP Entertainment. He practiced for about two years before his debut. He said that he did it all day at work except for during lunch and breaks.
Regarding O.de’s keyboard performance, Park Jin-young commented that although he practiced for two years, his skills are more than that, and he is really good. He has a great sense of beat and lead, and his fingers are so soft that they move well. Usually, if you have been playing for a long time, your fingers become stronger when you play instruments. O.de also stated that he’s been practicing a lot.
When O.de was a trainee, he did a monthly evaluation with a synthesizer and rap. He likes MIDI and sound-making tracks. As for MIDI, O.de started taking lessons after learning the piano to some extent when he switched over to the band.
Regarding composing, O.de received advice from Park Jin-young to not be bound by genre and just do what he wants to do at any time. “Even if you worry about how the song can be digested and changed into its own color in Xdinary Heroes, it is important to do what you want to do first without worrying about it,” he said.
His performance on stage is excellent. O.de is very good at expressions while performing. His teammate, Geonil, said that O.de’s gestures and acting are so cool that he feels that he has a lot to learn. In fact, he doesn’t seem to be nervous, but inside, his heart is actually beating very fast
