When I was much younger I wrote some music

An Electronic Music Composition

- Posted in Music by

My sufficiency, a required arts project, while attending WPI.

More information about the recording.

This is my final project for “Introduction to Electro-Acoustic Music.” I open the piece with a synth of real instruments, and then I progress to do what I believe is the true intention of a synthesizer, to be an instrument itself instead of mimicking other instruments. This is the culmination of all of my previous assignments in the class.

This is my first impression of a “theme” that I wrote for “Introduction to Electro-Acoustic Music” at WPI. All of my future assignments for the course were based on this one piece.

Christmas Theory

- Posted in Music by

This was my final project for music theory at WPI. Because I like synth sounds, I decided that this piece should be played using a square wave as opposed to a natural instrument like a piano. The name of this track comes about because I wrote it around Christmas time.

I originally made an off-the-cuff name for this music, but I've since renamed it

Modem Magic

After writing “It Doesn’t Suck,” I discovered Impulse Tracker, a tracking program that, although based on Scream Tracker, offered many improvements over the original. I was inspired to write this track after I created a simple answering machine message based on sampled modem sounds. Most of the samples in this track are telephone and modem samples that I created; although a few are from other sources. I consider this to be my favorite track of my three techno tracks.

It Doesn't Suck

I originally wrote this track using Scream Tracker during the winter of my sophomore year of high school. It is the first piece of music that I wrote. I named it “It Doesn’t Suck,” because I feel the title described the song perfectly… I wasn’t crazy about the music, but I felt that it wasn’t altogether that bad. The version presented here is not the original; I shortened it because I felt that the original was too long and repetitive.
