Here is the first of a series of logs to document the production process of a 20 minute track. The piece entitled “For the Sake of Patience” is to be handed in as a degree assignment but will also be released along with a second track in an EP a the end of the project when the track is finalized.

I began by creating midi tracks with various VST synthesizers and drum kits. I then started to record ideas down.

At the early stages i wasn’t sure what i wanted the piece to be. I knew i wanted it to be Electronic, but i didn’t know what styles and genres i would incorporate into the project. I also wanted to incorporate some rock influences into the piece by having some live drums in places and also guitar and bass guitar.

Next i sequenced all loops and tracked any additional parts to get a solid basis of the piece.

After doing all this, i had a solid piece of music to work on. Next step will be recording live drums for the appropriate sections and also Vocals, the latter of which will be recorded next week.
