College Band Rehearsal 2/6/17

The samples will consist of British public figures for the second piece instead of American, and we have decided to have positive quotes for the chorus’, and then the more negative figures quotes will be activated during other parts. Next session will consist of more

College Band Musical Decisions

With regards to our college band, along the way we made some recent musical decisions that would define our sound; the main one being using a synth. We decided on using a synth instead of a bass, as to have a more electronic and experimental sound. The synth also provides us with an array of sounds at our disposal, which we utilise well depending on the section of the song; for example a lighter sound with clean guitar and then a heavy distorted tone with distorted guitar in the breakdown. Our other musical decision was to include a sample pad, which will be activated during various sections of the songs. The samples will be of famous dictators/public figures and taken from various YouTube videos, and then ripped off using http://offliberty.com/
