Four self-evident truths.

“Spring Twilight” by Adrian Patience (2007/2013)


This is a track that I made in 2007. The cover artwork I made just this year(2013). In 2007 I had been making a lot of beat driven electronic/hip hop music, and this track was a departure from the previously mentioned “beat driven electronic/hip hop music”. It was about me making a change from the pulse pounding beats to something that was more about music(chords) and percussion. I was motivated to make this track because I was listening to a lot of jazz/electronic music that had a lot of ambient soundscapes(Jan Jelinek, Pat Metheny, John Klemmer, to name a few). I wanted to test myself and skill set to see if I could make something that was not so much about the hi-hat/kick/snare combo pack. Not to say that there is anything wrong with the aforementioned “hi-hat/kick/snare combo pack”, but I felt I need a change to broaden my proverbial “horizons”.

I made the track completely with Logic Pro 7 on my old school Powerbook G4(still in use today). The Powerbook and Logic being the main composition/sequencing work horses. A midi keyboard, the Presonus Firebox 400 interface, a mixer, and a variety of software plugins were also used to breath some analog/digital life into this track.

I made the cover artwork a few days ago. It’s fully compliant with iTunes album cover sizing and is available to download here, and also by clicking on the image above.
