Process music

I used SuperLooper to create three compositions. In SuperLooper you can click around the screen to make sound, but you can also use the top row keys (Q, W, E, R, T, Y, U, I, O, and P). I decided to compose a few songs using words made from the letters in the top row keys, typed sequentially, while retaining control of syncopation and timing, for all instruments. I found it interesting to mix the normal operation of a computer keyboard with the musical triggers of this web app. It gives each respective word a unique melody and mood.

T-O-R-T-U-R-E – listen
This composition is very upbeat and almost showtunesy, which is quite ironic given the word which inspired its creation. This track adds each instrument separately to build the composition, whereas the others just jump right into a full ensemble.

P-O-W-E-R – listen
This composition is a bit on the dark side. A minor key is at work, along with some repetitive tones due to holding down some keys for longer than normal. I like this one because it does feel like "power" to me, albeit in a darker sense.

P-R-E-T-T-Y – listen
This composition is melancholy, and its hook is kind of Top 40-ish. It doesn't scream "pretty," although maybe in a longing way, of something beautiful that is now lost.
