Summer Love - April 30th, 2009

I decided to take out the spacey guitar intro. I realized that I simply did not have enough time to do this kind of an intro properly. I also decided that the MIDI drums I had added were too distracting, so I chose to remove them from the song.

I added a MIDI recording of strings to the intro. I chose to add this bright instrument to contrast the dark tone of the guitar. Then I remixed the bells, which sounded close to the listening audience at first (just like the strings and the guitar). But, after having my class critique the piece, I added reverb to the bells and lowered their levels to make them appear farther away from in the mix.

I also changed the fade out so that the arpeggiating guitar fades in sooner and fades out later.
