In Yellow…sh Waves

This is my first ever electronic composition created in DAW software. Initially it was composed as an assignment in Coursera course ‘Survey of Music Technology’ (from Georgia Tech), under the title ‘In Yellow Waves’. The music is based on my earlier composition ‘In Yellow Waves I’ for Bb trumpet, alto saxophone and drums. I ‘dressed’ the winds’ parts in MIDI synth sound and the drums were completely rearranged. Various sound samples from the Ear Sketch sound library, and MIDI and audio recorded tracks had been added to the mix. The composition was made with Reaper DAW.

The images and the spirit of this music are different from those in the original piece. While working, I was thinking on the desert as a place of adventure, maybe not always friendly…To induce that feeling I used recording of my voice saying sh-sh sound, which eventually had been reflected in the title.
