Is my new album "Plainly Calm," the most beautiful music you will ever hear?
This is not only a remix, but also a tribute to Mac computers. I have them to thank to help me launch my music career. I have seen a lot of Mac bashing on YouTube, so this video is their rival. I used only Mac computer sounds to create this music remix, including the startup sounds and error sounds. The only thing that isn't a Macintosh computer sound is the drum groove. Although it is an Apple loop, so I take that back. Even the voices come from a program called Verbalize that makes use of the text-to-speech feature MacinTalk.
So how did I create this piece using only mac computer sounds? Its called sampling. The high "synth" in the beginning is a very early mac start-up sound altered to sound the way I want it to. The same is true toward the end.
What did I use to create this? Logic Pro 8 (on an imac of course).
As a little background information, Jim Reekes is the creator of the modern mac startup sound. According to him, "it's a C Major chord, played with both hands stretched out as wide as possible." In an interview he commented that it includes many different instruments and textures.
