Logic Final – Sam Trudeau – Dryads

Lyrics:

Dark thoughts

Empty

My mind

Too far

Why can’t I see past this

Dream state

I’m in

Long gone

Too far

How did I get here?

Two days

Where did

Time go

For me

I thought I was no more

Fazed out

Concerned

My mind

Is gone

This has to end some time

Where did you run to when

They surrounded you?

They’re all around me now

Dryads in my mind space

Just one

It won’t

Hurt you

At all

That’s what they told me

My mind

Racing

No thoughts

Stagnant

Is this what people do?

Dry mouth

Cold hands

Can’t see

Old pains

When will this all end?

No more

I can’t

Too far

Go back

This is where I go

Logic Project Draft

This song is called Dryads and is a song I have been working on for a little while. I wrote the guitar part a couple of months ago and for this project I decided to make a song out of it. I just used MIDI instruments for this draft but I plan on recording the guitar and bass for the final.

Loop Project Final – Sam Trudeau

Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 11.36.28 PM

This song was challenging mostly due to the parameters of having to primarily use loops. Once I came up with some cool ideas with loops, I realized I didn’t have much of a song rather a lot of musical ideas crammed together. I then moved things around and cut out some parts to make things flow better.

The most challenging part about this project were the vocals. I’m not very good at singing, so I had to do a good bit of pitch correction and editing to make them sound somewhat decent.

The readings helped me use Logic more efficiently. I already knew how to do a majority of the things that the readings explained, but having picked up a couple tips and tricks from the readings made the whole process go smoother.

Lyrics:

Taking a new step into unknown

Hiding from my past and from my home

I now know why I’m so far from you

This is my only time to move on

I’ve come so far from my lonely past

Every day I see reasons to live

Now I’m my true self for the first time

Take in each breath and smell every flower

Sam Trudeau Loop Draft

I have used Logic before with MIDI instruments, but I haven’t used loops in this way. It was interesting to see how creative I was able to be given the restraints of loops. I used the concept of cutting out portions of certain loops that was explained in the Logic lesson. I did this by chopping off the beginning of the piano phrase heard throughout the song to make the phrase flow better.
