Music in Motion

Recorded on the bus from Dungannon to Belfast, 12/11/17, one take jam on iPhone , some slight clipping, and funky levels here and there, but the roughness adds to it somehow, the bus was packed, this was recorded using blocswave, ElasticDrums, Animoog, troublemaker, Frobulator, Aum, the bus takes a slight detour from the motorway to pick up or drop anyone off at a park and ride, no one did… this was an impromptu jam that took eight minutes from the 50 minute journey… I may do a remix of this and one other skit I did on the same journey using launchpad.  Featured image via pixabay
Disquiet Junto Project 0306: Music in Motion
Record a piece of music while en route somewhere

Step 1: You’ll be making a piece of music while en route somewhere. Consider what instrument(s) and recording equipment you can easily carry.

Step 2: Plot a short trip — maybe a bus or train ride, maybe you’re in the back seat while someone else drives, maybe you’re driving and you record yourself singing.

Step 3: Compose and record a short piece of music with the equipment from Step 1 while on the route you decided upon in Step 2. Only use that equipment, and finish the piece while you’re still on the road.

Side Note: Certainly the sounds you encounter while on your little trip are potential source material.
