Another trap project

 

I didn’t get to present this, but I would like feedback, so let me know what you think

Project 1

Hey guys hope you take a listen to my first project. I played around with reverb, fading, and gating to try to get some cool sounds out of the guitar. I’m definitely open to any suggestions and comments! 

Check out piece for project 1

Hi Everyone,

Let me know what you think of my piece, Hymn of the Forest. I composed this piano piece piano awhile ago, and I mixed in drums, wind-chimes and some other effects in it. Thank you.

Flight Calls

Hey everybody,

I work at Cornell’s Lab of Ornithology (a big bird studies program just off campus) and my part of my job has been to upload sound files. I began realizing that some birds made fantastic sounds and could possibly edited together into a piece with harmonies, melodies, rhythms, etc. A majority of samples are unedited or lightly edited in this, my Project 1. I hope you enjoy!

This is also my first attempt at anything like this… today I heard a whole bunch of fantastic pieces from people; you know who you are and I want your feedback!

Listening: Wendy Carlos

Thanks, all, for a nice day of sharing and discussion.

As a fun post-project “assignment”, please listen to the music from A Clockwork Orange (Stanley Kubrick), created using Moog Synthesizers. These pieces, like all of Carlos’s work, were meticulously constructed, “orchestrated”, and realized, sometimes note by note.

Realization of Beethoven’s 9th symphony (Movement #4):

Realization of Henry Purcell’s Music for the funeral of Queen Mary

–> Note that this video presents the version presented in the film’s introduction. It’s slightly “NSFW” and is not intended to endorse the film, just to present the music.

And the best for last, an excerpt from Timesteps.

Timesteps (original piece):

If you dig around for others, be careful, there are many “imposter” versions of these and similar pieces realized from a MIDI file with a low-quality synthesizer “presets”!

Project 1 – Michael Ndubuisi

Hey,

Just wanted to share my piece for the first project. I went a little overboard with some effects towards the end, but I still think it turned out okay. Feel free to comment and let me know what you think!

 

Project 1 – Zach Anderson

Hey guys,

Here’s my piece for project 1, I welcome any comments or feedback.

For anyone that’s interested, here’s where I got the sounds:

  • The vocal sounds are from:
    “Schopska Pesen”   on  Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares (1975), by the Bulgarian State Radio and Television Female Vocal Choir.
  • The distorted drone sounds are from some SuperCollider code (more on this below) by Nathaniel Virgo.
  • I made the rest of the pitched sounds with SuperCollider.
  • The percussion sounds were made by putting one of the portable sound recorders in my washing machine (not running at the time!) and banging on the lid.

If you’re interested in the Bulgarian music, check this out:  Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares

SuperCollider is an audio programming language that I’ve been fooling around with. I don’t know if we’re going to talk about it in class at all, but I highly recommend checking it out if it sounds interesting. It’s free and open source, and it’s also installed on the studio computers (but not those in the computer lab). The website is here. Also, Taylan has some good resources on his page here.

Hi guys! Since I did not get a chance to share this in class, here’s my project 1! (It’s rather raw in my opinion, but please feel free to comment, thanks!)

Check out my Project 1

Hey guys,

I would love to hear what you guys think about my piece “Power Walking.” I made it in Ableton and I mixed in a sample from “The Walker” by Fitz and the Tantrums. Leave me a comment for feedback and I look forward to listening to your projects as well.
