Description
Another from my younger son (11 years old). One of his earlier efforts (about 6 months ago.) This is a mythical meeting of a couple of street musicians and a band and their musical dueling.

This is your SON??? Amazingly polished work for anyone, let alone an 11-
year old! Lots of fun. The percussion panning effect was interesting, and
it occurred to me that it would also have been neat to create the illusion
that there are two different drummers by having two drum tracks, panned
left and right, and they could get into a little dueling drum action.

Great stuff! Very talented kids.

Thanks Clark. He'll appreciate the comment! You should give a listen to his other piece (a collab with his older brother): Movement 1

You're welcome, and I'll check it out for sure. I really would like to
know what the process was... Is this done in Garage Band with loops, or ...? I
don't know nuttin' 'bout Garage Band or how loops would be used to create
something like this, and I keep telling myself that I MUST figure it out, because
I'm hearing a lot of strikingly impressive music generated this way. No matter
how it was done, though, I'm impressed.

Hey Clark,

As he's at music camp for a couple of weeks I'll answer for him. He spent a lot of time auditioning loops in the loop browser in GB. When he got ones that he liked he dragged them into tracks in the track arranger. Then he moved them arround until he liked the basic arrangement. Then he adjusted the panning and such in the automation tracks.

Pretty much the standard Garageband loop composing...the talent is in arranging the loops to make musical sense. I do give him pointers along the way, so he doesn't get into that "one loop playing through the whole thing" issue but both of them usually do their composing on their own then have me give it a listen.

what in a couple of years?
Amazing how an 11 year old boy is able to compose such a song. What will he be up to in a couple of years? Keep an eye on that kid Graham!

Cheers!

Seriously....
...by the time GarageBand 5 is out, this kid's going to be doing
soundtrack work... And probably never having to use anything BUT
GarageBand...

Very musical, very interesting, nicely funky and fun. It passes the "you
can listen to it" test for me...

I especially enjoyed the parts where you could hear where the
mellotron wasn't...

Time for SOMEBODY to have their own MacJams page...

kid got potential
An 11 year old boy composing such song is amazing.
When he gets my age (27) he should compose pieces of art..

The foto is very good too..

This is just great fun
Thanks for posting this. I love the panning effect and the way the bass and the hi-hats switch places. Very creative.

Give him a "ad a boy" for me.
