19th of March (78th Song)

Synth Optimism

The sound design course is starting to get very interesting and creating sounds from the scratch using additive synthesis, that means from a fundamental frequency wave modifying parameters changing the timbre, the envelope, etc, is one of the funniest things I can imagine, so the song is about created-from-zero sounds and, when I got something interesting, adding the instruments that felt to suit with the feeling. Acoustic guitar and string section were a good option. 

Thoughts: Coursera strikes again and I'm in the best part of the sound design course, and learning a lot about synthesis. I'm still a rookie but I'm starting to understand how this works, I'm thinking about a new wave of synth art, but it's a secret. I'm gonna be the pioneer, mwahahaha. 
A lot of editing again to loop the different parts and make them grow. I struggle a lot playing that easy acoustic, but playing it one million times has been a good practice, I just got one round kind of well played though and I looped it constantly through the whole song. 
I like the strings from the Kontakt instuments as ensemble but not the solo violin, maybe I should adjust some parameters, but I wanted to record a solo and it was so lame. 
The mixing again has been funny, I'm starting to hear clearly things that I couldn't before and that makes the things sound better. Great session. The song is quite interesting too. 

Enjoy it!
