This track is a bit unusual for me in that I’m actually working with recorded audio instead of interpreted note information.
What the heck does that mean?
Well, normally there’s an added layer or two of abstraction, letting me change wrong notes, adjust timing, and generally tweak every aspect of performance in post-production. Here, I just had to play well.
I found the process creatively liberating, but the end result feels a little raw to me.
It take VERY little credit for this one. It’s a fairly straightforward arrangement of loops in GarageBand, deliberately trying for a more mainstream sound. It’s more of a production exercise than anything, but I do like how it came out.
