Sound Portrait by Pixie

March 3rd, 2010 9:11 AM

INSTRUCTIONS: Create an audio file which sounds like you, without speaking.

For groups of people, an audio collaboration is encouraged.

This has 2 parts and many tries.

For starters, i don't always understand how people perceive me, so coming up with some thing that sounds like me was difucult (seeing as i don't know how that is.) I have a personal bias of liking some of my "bad" traits and hating some of my "good" ones. I also kind of love piano loops, being that i play piano, so you will see that in my creations.

I also have free software that i know(ish), so these are a collection of loops. If i ever can hook a keyboard up, then i'll actually be cool, but for now, loops are going to work.

Part one

[proof:id88410, size:100, align:left]

I'd say my first try was an ideal of me and how, over time, people's impression of me changes.
I start out as the "happy girl" who is too energetic for my own good socially, then people get used to me, and see me when i'm calmer, so the music becomes calmer and more pleasant to the ears but still an unlikely combination of things. (i make this go on for longer because it's pretty!) the end is when i'm sad and contemplative. it's sudden and seems out of place and unlike the rest, which is how i've been informed it is by people who have seen me in this state. i don't show people that side unless they've known me for a while, hence it's at the end

Part two

[proof:id88411, size:100, align:left]

For Part two, I wanted to do something less pleasant, because i know many people don't think i am. I get complaints about being too intense, to cheerful, i space out at random, (and too flirty) so i tried to get all these in. however, i still wanted it to be somewhat pleasant, because i may be very flawed, but i'm still a human and am still essentially music. it again sounded too pleasant to me to be a collection of my flaws, but iti have a personal bias of liking overwhelming and fast and complicated things things (and limited resources)

Second try Not unpleasant but not something you listen to for fun. At one point there are six layers of piano, which makes me happy.

I love the muse-esque feel these have. I think you've covered flaws and perfections well. But its the flaws that make us exciting

The first piece was certainly more consistent and the different parts of it fit together more seamlessly - save two thirds in when it abruptly dropped off and became more intense - but the second, although somewhat fragmented, demonstrated a much wider range of emotion. Either way, they were both well done.

quite nice!

as a musician/geek i feel i can say this is great creation! yeah, it could use a little technical clean up but the structure is there, the ideas are there and the feelings are there. that's what matters. XD
