Cas Entry: November-ish

In November I worked with a friend on a rendition of Sunset Park Act 1/2 from Sonic Triple Trouble.
My friend had never used any sort of musical software like this before and I taught him the basics.
That is, as I didn’t know how to use the most advanced portions of my program……The basics were roughly half of what I knew.

We listened and tried to fit things into place.
The greatest issue was trying to make the song sound different in some sections.
Working with someone was especially different from what I had been accustomed to.
Trying ideas and having immediate feedback was like a double edged sword until I got used to it.
While I may have wanted to go one direction he wanted to go another, so we compromised.

Then he went home, I still felt like working on the song. So……I made a version with variations throughout.
Time Spent:
3 hours together on first version
Enjoying a Park in the Sunset
2 and 1/2 hours on the Variation version
Sunset Park Collab (Variant Vers.)

=_= I should really be more on the ball with this.

I am horribly sorry for the myriad times I’ve forgotten to update.

Hopefully this will lighten that air of forgetfulness.

I will post and reflect on each piece I’ve gotten done since my last update as well as upload each one and finally post my Doll of Misery renditions (Because I got nit-picky so there are two and they are different).

I will also once again include the link to my works in addition to embedding them in the blog.
