A few months ago, I attended a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) called Play With Your Music (http://www.playwithyourmusic.org).
At the end of the course, some of the hands on exercises were to create mixes and remixes of a nice and sweet track called Air Traffic performed by Clara Berry & Wooldog. (http://claraberry.com)
This track is quite nice, mixing softness and tragedy at the same time and this is what makes it special. While thinking about how to remix the track, I really wanted to keep the tragic aspect of the track but I really wanted to make it more dynamic and more in line with my style of music. So, I added a lot of bass, beat and added some strings and synths for additional melody.
And guess what… After posting the remix on SoundCloud, it got featured in the PWYM Spotlights.
This is good, but it gets better.
Clara Berry liked the remix too (I saw that on SoundCloud). All this empowers me to keep on doing my music and trying to stay creative.
The remix has been made with a web-based DAW called Soundation (www.soundation.com). If you don’t load it with too many tracks, I have to admin that Soundation performs quite nicely. If you want to see how it was made, I can give you my Soundation file. Just let me know by email.
Thank you for reading !
