Cat Gut (Your Tongue):
Something a little different today, a piano based track that feels to me like a movie soundtrack.
I began today by experimenting with YouCompose, a generative music app that you can set to give you either a classical or a jazz form. I must admit I’m not too sure if this sort of thing is up my alley, but I thought it might be a good learning tool, or at least provide some material to build from or to pull apart.
So I set it to generate a 3 movement classical piece and then I fiddled with the instruments and parameters until I got something I kind of liked. Then I exported the midi files into Auria and assigned each of the 4 parts to a piano sound, because it sounded best that way.
Next I slowed each movement in TwistedWave and then added Dedalus and Crystalline.
The second movement was working the best so I decided to concentrate on that. I reversed it and added the three variations into Auria ie the uneffected slowed version, the effected slowed version, and the reversed effected slowed version.
Once I had these three in place I did some cutting and pasting to fine tune the composition a little more to my taste.
