The song which has been produced combines a range of Music Tech studio recordings that were recorded over the last four years. The aim was to take these recordings and combine them to create a song. Often recordings will be made as part of demonstration labs and not then used after. This project combines a range of samples that we recorded in the last 4 years. This composition is reflective of my journey because it combines these samples to combine different elements from the 4 years to create a finished product. This is symbolic of my journey through college. I have named this piece changes because it represents changes in my life from starting college to finishing college.
The aim of this piece was to use recordings I had made over the past 4 years. I then made loops out of them and used Ableton to produce a song. By creating loops of the different recordings and making the song in one take allowed me to realise my concept correctly. This allowed me to combine the recordings in an interesting way. This process helped the idea as the creation of the loops meant I had to listen closely to each recording while the production of the song combined the elements in an interesting way
I have learned a wide range of technical skills regarding music production but have also come to appreciate the power of self-recorded material This experience ties into a wider college experience which has changed me as a person, hence the name, Changes.
