Music (Sound Production)

VCE VET Music (Sound Production) students work with a range of contemporary industry technologies. Students learn to reinforce sound in live performance and to record, edit, mix and enhance sound within a recording studio context.

Every Time

FL Studio

My song, Every Time, is a reflection on complicated relationships, in particular the perplexing experience of feeling both hopelessness and love. I used FL Studio for all the recording, mixing and mastering involved in creating the track. This original song was written and performed by me and my brother Declan. The project uses 43 mixer tracks, 80 playlist tracks and more than 45 audio samples or recordings. The mix was designed to show variation, including panning, stereo and different tonal and FX treatments as the song develops. These techniques, along with the tension and release within the track, emphasise the emotional push and pull of the relationship experience.

Trust the Dead

Logic Pro X

Trust the Dead is a unique blend of folk and alternative music styles. I combined the commonly used instrumentation and storytelling qualities of folk with modern production and effects to create a unique and engaging track. I enjoyed the challenge of composing, producing and mixing a modern-sounding track that retained its folk roots while experimenting and pushing the parameters of the effects I could use.
