Midi Highlighting (reproducing Danny Elfman ‘Batman Theme’ intro)
Although I did not attend the lecture in which this task was undertaken, I did see Julio briefly to see what the task entailed. After downloading the files and importing them into Logic I set about trying to reproduce the introduction section of the Batman theme. Playing the original through the Right speaker (as recommended by Sammy Vere, Sol Bateman and other students) and listening to my own attempts alongside this through the Left speaker helped in completing this exercise.
By listening to and trying to replicate the theme I determined that the main motif for the theme is a simple 5 note melody playing B, C#, D, G, F#, indicating to me a scale of B Minor. Working through the first 40 seconds I managed to produce the following audio.
