Garage Band No. 1
Garage Band No. 2
Garage Band No. 3
Garage Band is a program of Apple's that allows the writer to
assemble a song from a massive archive of loops of pre-recorded motifs.
I always considered it a bit of a cheat, but it does take skill to construct
something meaningful. The program was introduced in 2004, and my first
two pieces were made at that time. The third piece was something I put
together recently. All my samples and loops live on a dedicated external
drive. It was the night before we were to be hit by a hurricane, so we were
sitting in the living room watching the weather reports and my samples drive
wasn't even connected to my mac. I started doodling around with Garage
Band to pass the time, and discovered I had a cache of Apple loops hiding
somewhere in the depths of my Library, So I put No. 3 together while we
waited for the hurricane, but praise God, we were spared once again, a
direct hit turned into a bit of rain and wind.
