Ableton Live Assignment.

So I was given this assignment at uni which required me to develop a track, minimum 3 minutes long of all my own recorded sounds in Ableton Live. Doesn’t sound too bad, but then I got told I had to perform it live, and I started stressing.
I finally started the assignment tonight, and after working on it for a few hours I am surprisingly happy with how it’s turning out.
I started with a beat, using sounds I had previously recorded for another assignment which were a friend playing pool, and me brushing my teeth. I used the drum rack tool to create this. I then recorded my vocals just scatting along to the rhythm. I added some reverb and messed around with the EQ on these tracks to make them sound funky.

I’m a little bit stuck, on where to go from here so I’m hoping if I sleep on it and try again tomorrow night I will have some fresh ideas, and not realise I’m tired right now and its actually horrible!

I will keep you updated on my progress with the foreign world of electronic music and when it is done I will upload it!

In other news on Wednesday night I am playing at an open mic night in Balnarring! According to Bj it’s got pretty chilled vibes and seems like it’s just a jam sesh for local musicians so it should be a good environment! Hopefully I’ll have some photos and vids up after that.

Until then, check out my videos on youtube and share them with your friends!
