Assignment 1.3: Real Composition Based on Score

Assignments: 1.1 | 1.2 | 1.3 | 2.1 | 2.2 | 3.1 | 3.2 | 3.3 | 4.1 | 4.2 | 4.3 | 4.4 | 5.1

Using your score from Assignment 1.2, compose a piece using only your short sounds. All your short sounds must be used. Use all the 'tape' techniques in Pro Tools we have learned so far. Forget about your long sound; you are working from the score. You are not trying to recreate the long sound. This is a real composition, one that you should feel comfortable living with and saying is yours. It should be expressive or somehow else musical, not just a technical exercise. It should be as long as you think it should be; 30s to whatever your score suggests.
