Here you will find all of my songs I have made since Music Tech. 2, this is where I will share all of my music and the process I went through in creating, arranging, and editing them after I have presented them.
School Beat Project- Andrew Buscher
This was the first piece of music i have made for the school year in Music Tech. II In my piece of music I tried to use as many beats as possible from Andrew Huangs school sample pack. I ended up using a majority of them with only using two outside clips which were a guitar and a drum clip. When I made choices selecting and altering my tracks I made it so drums and percussion were the most important part of my piece so i gave them the most presence in my song with not many other parts besides my one guitar piece. Other musical ideals I added into my track would be I had 3 drum racks instead 2. Which made it so I could have 6 tracks instead of them required 5. When mixing my music in the arrange window I wanted my guitar to be lower and have a deeper bass while my drums and percussion I wanted to be more noticed because they were much more important in my song since it was a percussion based piece I made. New skills I learned while doing this project were how to make my own drum racks and how to mix my music better so it sound much better. Also I learned how to use custom plugins on Abelton Live. I have since changed a few things after I turned in my project. I made changes in the way the video sounds by making the parts only come out of certain sides of the headphones or speakers. I also adjusted the volume so that it would sound much more clear for the individual parts.
The Ambient Mountain- Andrew Buscher
When altering and selecting my instruments and sounds I wanted to make sure that they were nice and calming and all went together in my piece of music. I made it so there was always music playing. The instruments that I used were all relatively quiet, peaceful, and once again calming. While I was deciding what kind of theme that I wanted I made sure to match the theme, pictures in the slide show, and the music perfectly which I think I did pretty well. My theme was a journey of exploring the world and I chose pictures of mountains for the slideshow to show you could go anywhere and the music matches with the mountains as well. After presenting my project to the class I decided I found my slides were a little too long so I shortened it to end right when the music ended to have a final closing. I also made the size of the video a little bit smaller to fit on the website.
For this piece I wanted to create a really nice melody and incorporate many other pieces into it with many other instruments dividing it into multiple parts to make each pert unique and different from the others
Michael Jackson- Don't Wanna Be Starting Something (Improved) Andrew Buscher
My first project in Pro Tools and we had to choose from a selection of songs to work on, and improve the sone to make it sound smoother and nicer
Squares Project- Andrew Buscher
With this project we used a new program called Pro Tools and learned how to create a good piece of music on it. i really enjoyed creating this piece and glad it turned out the way it did.
