Third Album: Multicasting

September 7, 2010

As a reward for finishing my novel, I allowed myself to work exclusively on my third album of GarageBand tunes before even thinking about starting on the second draft of the book.

I finished Multicasting over the weekend, and it’s easily the most satisfying of the three albums for me, as I’m getting more and more comfortable with the software — and also thanks largely to my gradually expanding library of software instruments, especially the World Music jam pack, which has enabled me to diversify the orchestrations considerably.  I don’t consider this high art or anything, but hey, I like the songs, and more importantly I’m really enjoying the process:  learning the software, and figuring how to build music, all sort of by the seat of my pants.  It’s the perfect musical outlet for a lapsed rock musician, and I’m having a blast.

Below is the tracklist; playable ones have a play button below them.  Most have appeared in previous blog posts, but there are four new ones added for this post: “The Desert Portals,” “The Pavement Artist,” “Melting Pot,” and “Streetwise.” I think “Mirage” may still be my favorite.

I do hope, at some point, to get away from theme-songy, loop-driven music, but right now it’s really scratching my itch — a totally different buzz than writing fiction!
