This is my entry into the six hour challenge for Dr. B's Csound class. The instruments were designed in Ableton Live, mostly using the "Simpler" instrument using only rendered audio from Csound Catalog 2.5 synthesizers. Ableton Live was rewired into Pro Tools to record lines, loops and rhythms and then edited, arranged and mixed in Pro Tools.
The list of catalog files used is as follows:
bd14_01 Varga Catalog
03_01_1 Gather Amsterdam Catalog
wts7 Comanjuncosas Collection
035PluckBass Varo_PinkstonDX Collection
analog3 Comanjuncosas Collection
bell1 Risset Catalog
012Vibraphone Varo_PinkstonDX Collection
pad solina Comanjuncosas Collection
Class5 Boulanger Berklee Students/Conrad
effect Boulanger Berklee Studnets/Chen
Compositionally the song is based on the music of Swedish artist The Field's Microhose/ambient techno, using chopped up repetitive minimalist structures juxtaposed against slowly evolving textures and timbres. Approximately 1 hour was used for instrument design, 3 hours for composition, 1 hour for arrangement and 1 hour to create a final mix.
