Perhaps as a violent reaction against last week's 'low-brow' track, I went all out with the strings this week. After I'd put this track together I read about using reverb and panning to mimic orchestral positioning. For the first time I actually thought about using panning to seat the listener in a space. Now that I considered realism though, it occurred to me that I had about four groups of first violins (infinite strings at my fingertips!!) and they weren't going to work all panned to the left.
So I began reducing instruments to a realistic number, reassigning instruments so they were playing in more appropriate ranges and so forth when all of a sudden... my computer died... for good. And uh... well this is how far I got.
This track is dedicated to you buddy. Rest in peace, this is the last thing we ever made together *sniffle*.
Later in the year I want to do a more focused string quartet version of my favourite part of this track, it's the part that begins immediately after the solo flute!
Now to start building a new computer...
