GarageBand is one of the applications you’ve probably seen on your Mac but never really used much, but it can be a lot of fun, as I discovered.
Using the built in loops and the music editor, you can create music really quickly. It can start like a kind of ‘painting by numbers’ for music.
I’m still learning how to use this fun piece of software, but I collected together my first attempts and made them into a small compilation.
Real musicians will probably say these ‘tracks’ completely suck, and I know there are many faults and mistakes I have made, but as a first attempt I think the results are not too bad.
The ‘tracks’ are not complete, usually end abruptly, are often simply an idea that led nowhere and I got bored of — usually for good reason 🙂
Feel free to comment below, but be careful not to hurt my ego too much 🙂
Disclaimer: Please do not listen to any of the sounds below if you are operating machinery, as they may cause drowsiness or even narcolepsy 😉
Feel free to copy and distribute these ‘tracks’ freely, and load them into your iPod.
Anyway, all excuses aside, here we go… I present you with ‘Promise Beyond’ — the album. You could start with Tracks 2 and 4 as a suggestion.
