Class 05 - Final
Representing different levels of inner emotional self during quite moments.

Some of the audio was recorded and the rest was created from scratch on Ableton. The order of sounds went through a lot of different iterations, but what remained constant along with the concept is the continues kick pattern and soft twinkling drone like sound. Keeping these two elements together to create a contrast against each other and playing spaciously with the panning to represent closely enough of how I hear these sound qualities in my head.
The techniques I used was the built in instruments with in Ableton searching for sound that closely resemble the layout I set for myself. Doing so helped alot going through most of the instruments quickly because I knew I needed for example something that sounds high pitch but airy at the same time. For the natural element of peace which the birds sound quality I was looking for a way to have a section of it to loop repeatedly. Digging within the audio effects, there was a looper option I mess around with that gave me the desired effect of it being that in the background throughout the whole piece, almost barely visible at times.
Lastly the recordings I made having a conversation with my mom while my father and sister interpret as times, represent encapsulated memories. Talking about our similarities, heartbreaks and what salad. Having those recording along with me humming a song that was stuck in my head of a week, hopefully establishes that quality of inner thoughts and dialogues I get. Putting all these elements together in the order that made sense can hopefully paint an all over mental and emotional state while listening to it.
Headphones and just close your eyes.
