Yours Truly – by Orlandicus August 2020

Best heard with a speaker

SOFTWARE: GarageBand (Archive)

EXPERIENCE: I started working on this project two months ago. After a few weeks I stopped working on this and started on something else. Six weeks later I came back to this and decided to complete what I had started. This piece struck something deep inside of me, a feeling that compelled me to compose more in this style.

SOFTWARE: Soundtrap (online music software)

EXPERIENCE: I have been working on this project for 2 months. Due to the fact that I have had so many projects happening at the same time, I stopped working on this piece for a few weeks but after searching through my archives I found it along with other unfinished projects. I thought that it was time to finish it once and for all!

SOFTWARE: Sound-trap (online music software)

EXPERIENCE: I have been working on this piece for roughly a month during the lock-down. This piece of music uses instruments such as electric drum machines and piano synthesisers. During these hard times I have been working extra hard to get this piece completed. Listen and reflect.

SOFTWARE: Garageband and Audacity.

EXPERIENCE: I worked on this piece for roughly a month. Recently I watched a few movies with lots of good synthesiser music which gave me a few ideas – for example Terminator 1 & 2 (Brad Fiedel) and Close Encounters of the Third Kind (John Williams).

My Dad has also been playing me 80’s music from Depeche Mode, Human League and OMD.

After tough work I have an outcome, I hope you enjoy!

Patience – by Orlandicus March 2020

Best heard with headphones

SOFTWARE: Garage Band & Audacity

EXPERIENCE: I composed this piece of music over a couple of days. I had some trouble with the bass but I got there in the end. I changed the texture and softened the piano. During mastering we compressed the bass because it was a little overpowering.

If you are in the car or in the mood for some upbeat music, this is the piece of music for you!

SOFTWARE: Logic Pro X and Audacity

EXPERIENCE: This piece is important to me because it was the first time using Audacity and I didn’t really know how to use it, but with some help I have created an upbeat piece that you will enjoy.
