Studio Production: Library Music

We were given a task to produce 2 tracks in the recording studio to fit a specific genre. The track needed to be 1 minute 30 seconds in length as it would be used for library music. As well as the 1.30 track, we needed to make a 30 second bed and a 5 second sting for the track.

Action and Drama

We chose to do a piece for the Action and Drama genre. We recorded drums, bass, guitar, piano and a didgeridoo. This piece was a good chance for me to use Logic for the first time so I focused on being the studio engineer as well as recording the guitar for the piece.

Extreme Sports

We used Cubase to record the extreme sports track. After researching other themes we came up with a rock guitar piece that was appropriate for the genre.
