Have you ever experienced when you have gone from one level to another, and you later try to go back? It just can’t be done. I used to be a total synth guy. Always looking for sounds and sampling stuff. Always collecting synths and sounds but never using them. Recording a song could take forever because there where so many sounds and options to consider.
I make my music in a totally different way now, and when I tried to mix the orchestral stuff with the synth stuff I quickly realized that there is no going back! Maybe I should make my sample library free to download for any interested synth dude out there?
So, how is the wind quintet coming along? I have now begun orchestrating the last movement, and when that is done I need to go over the other movements one more time. Then I think it’s ready, and I can publish the mockup on Soundcloud and start hunting for an orchestra.
Back to work!
I’ve made a video for my piece Dance for viola and bassoon no2. The video is up of short fractal animations, made in Frax on my ipad. I discovered that I can use the iPad camera to set the colors of the fractal, and that made really interesting animations. I then assembled the clips in Adobe Premiere and added text and transitions, and sound of cause. Hope you like it!
Besides that, I have finished a movement of my wind quintet, and have two more composed. I’m working on the fourth so I hope I will be ready to present the entire piece before Christmas. Back to work!
Suddenly major updates roll out for all the apps I use frequently A christmas for nerds! Yesterday I received upates for Capture One, Sibelius and Snapseed. Not to mention That the new beta of YouCompose is very good. There are two apps I beta test, YouCompose and Fractal Architect. So much fun, so little time!
My wind piece is coming along nicely. I have two movements composed, and a bit of the third. Right now I’m in the process of correcting all the misstakes I’ve made in the composing stage. I will probably make this piece into a wind quintet, rather than a quartet, since there are more orchestras out there for quintets.
So, no time to waste. I have apps to play with and music to write!
