Finding 3 minutes of stillness in an otherwise busy day
'Sometimes when you get caught up in the rush of a busy day finding 3 minutes of stillness and a calm moment can save your day.' That was the theme I worked with, to make a piece of music which seeks to find a moment when you can freeze a moment and let the calmness envelop you.
This track was recorded live in 1 improvised take. I used Ableton software Live looping via a Push device. There are three main sounds you hear, each looped and repeated; the first a low humming tone which is 16 seconds long. The next is a simple gentle piano strike which is 10 seconds long and again looped. I then played a longer dense sounding ambient synth drone which is 18 seconds long. I had a stop watch to the side of my computer screen and managed just to end 2 seconds under the three minutes!
