Train piece (in progress)

January 5, 2008 at 10:42 am (MADA UNIT 1)

This is a composition I started using recordings I made on London Underground.

For me the first minute is interesting, but after that it kind of falls apart. I wanted it to build in to a big rhythmic crescendo, but this proved difficult because of the frequency range of the samples I worked with. I think through careful layering techniques I could achieve it. I tried adding sampled drums to enhance the rhythm, but decided against it in the end since they have very little relation to the other sound used in the piece.
