Rushing back remix
Doctor Who's Trip
Slaughter of the Lamb
Saga of the Sleeping Baby
This composition trouble 3 was fun to make because the mood and energy are upbeat. When composing it, I knew I wanted to have a deep yet happy song. When I transitioned the song from the trap beat to the piano beat, it was choppy at first but after working on it I was able to smooth the flow and add a new style. I started out with just the trap beat, found a few intro sounds for it and then added new pieces when I felt the song needed. I really liked the freedom we had with this project. We have free range with all of our projects but this one was especially free because Mr. McCready was out almost the entire time we worked on it. Even though it was nice, it did come with a new set of challenges because if you had a question or needed help, you had to figure it out or ask a peer.
This was one of my first compositions using the application Ableton. The instructions were to make your first composition using our new application and to include pan and. This was a very difficult composition and I learned many new things about the flow of the piece, and transitioning through the song. I also learned about bringing the energy of my music up through the volume and separating the beats to make the song clearer.
This composition was done on sound trap, it was by far took the most time and was the most difficult to make. We listened to a song in class, discussed the mood and energy and then were given the vocal recordings and were told to make a song. The most challenging part was the space between her singing, I restarted this project multiple times. But after many hours, ended with something I'm very proud of. I learned about panning and sweeping to create a cool texture and building the energy by adding more beats.
During one of our classes, we talked about Delia Derbyshire and her importance in making the Doctor Who theme song, but never getting the credit she deserved. So for my composition on this topic my song was inspired by her work. I used the pan to bring up the energy by building the song while still having new elements come in clear. I learned the importance of separating the beats between the speakers to make for a clear song.
Slaughter of the Lamb was one of my first ever compositions, really having no idea what I was doing I struggled. But I managed to have a lot of fun playing around with music. I learned the different components to a song, and when to place things in your music to keep it interesting.
Saga of the Sleeping baby was a very fun composition, it's known as my saw dust. I really did not know what i was doing, but I was having fun. I thought it was very cool that i could add an audio file of a baby crying. In this, I used the electric guitar to give it a rock mood but also had a very trap like beat.
