Inspired by the (accidental) discovery of my Macs built in microphone, and our lectures on Luigi Russolo and John Cage, i have composed my own piece of Musique Concrete. Here’s ‘Headscape’ –
I had great fun recording all manner of noises for this, from rattling my bracelets, to the flick of a lighter (10 points to anyone who can identify the lighter in the track). I really like the reverb that seems to be present on all the recordings i made (although i have added some different reverb settings to several channels). However i want to get a usb soundcard and nice mic so i can get cleaner recordings.
I am working on another piece in the same style and will be uploading soon. Hope you enjoy this one!
