Writing a meditation

Last week my songwriting took a new twist. Composing the music for a mediation.

My concept was to use background sounds of water. Using free sound clips I started with rain, followed by a small brook, to a rapid, and finally the ocean. I talked over each clip and at the ocean, I played the native American flute over the sounds of the waves. It turned out pretty cool.

The biggest challenge was using my Zoom recording system and the free sound clips. The clips are only a few seconds in length, so I needed to piece a number of clips together. The big challenge was bumps where the clips came together. I never really solved this issue, and had to be creative in my mix and when using my final product in the meditation.
