In this project, there was a ton of tough decisions. The schoolhouse project were challenging because I had to make my own beat from scratch. In the track, I included a Kid Cudi vibe like in the song pursuit of happiness. I think it was cool to be able to find out how to do that loop once I figured out how. I made this choice because once I hit a key on my Push I heard the tone of Kid Cudi song. I felt like it needed to be added.In the arranged mode I mixed a little. I made sure you could hear all the instruments at the same time. Also I made sure nothing was way louder than other loops. I tried to keep it rather simple because it sounded good. In the future when the songs become more complex, I will do more mixing and try to make it sound even better. I felt like a producer, which was a good feeling. I hope to learn more about Ableton so I can make better music and please people with my projects.
In the process. I put everything into D minor pentatonic. It made the atmospheric vibe even better. I tried to make a increasing tune that repeat and added an instrument each time it increased. My slideshow was based off of sunrises. It went with the music perfectly because the piece of music was a rising type beat. It made the sunrises look even more appalling. The sunrises themselves were beautiful and one of a kind, so finding a beat to with them took some serious time and effort. When I presented, I got feedback to make my music piece longer. Therefore, I added a few more seconds to my presentation to make it last longer. Some criticism for myself was to align the slides with the music a little better so I did that as well. I think if I can just add to the beat, this can be an amazing piece that can win contests. I really enjoyed doing this project and am still looking forward to learning a ton more about Ableton Live.
This project was our minimalist idea. We were able to come out with a, "trippy"or," chill" beat. I tried to make it as hip-hop as I could. I liked the symphony to this beat I made. I love music that has this type of flow. This type of music reminds me of something Playboi Carti, or Drake would make. Throughout the process, I had to mix and make sure you could equally hear all of the sounds. Mixing this was probably the most fun part about this project. One thing that could be added to make this better would be piano note that makes the beat flow better. All in all, this project was a ton of fun to work with and I hope you enjoy!
