Description
Autumn

You wake up and realize autumn has arrived.

The gold and red leaves chase each other in the wind. You walk out into the sunlight and breathe deeply. White cumulus clouds scurry across the azure blue sky. The geese are flying south and you say goodbye, sighing.

The wind dies down and night slowly settles over the land. Stillness… The stars look like diamonds. There is nothing to say; you can only marvel at the beauty.

In the morning you step outdoors to find that summer has returned, if only for a moment. Birds are singing, and little white butterflies are dancing in the sunlight.

Evening comes, and with it, the cool wind and clouds. You realize autumn has arrived.

Hmmmm! Roxy..
this Autumn seems to be inspiring a lot of people around here LOL. This is a lovely gentle piece and I don't know why, but it has a British feel to it for me... (Ok I'll let you have New England then LOL). Your music describes perfectly the lovely words you wrote above. I expected that you might have read/spoke those words too, which also would have been nice, Loved it anyway, regards M

I just typed in "autumn" in MacJams. I had no idea I stole the title, sorry, guys. Thank you for your nice comment, Maurice. British... Hmmm... must be the influence of all those fantastic UK musicians. I never thought of putting the words in there. Hey, feel free to add them; you have a great speaking voice! :-)

Awesome job
Very well done Roxy! :-) I loved the playful piano interlude. How did you do it all? I don't recognize any loops. Have you bought a keyboard to interface with the G4.

God bless,

Rick

Hey, Rick
Thanks for stoping by for a listen. :-) I knew I forgot something- I meant to add that this piece is all modified (green) loops. The fact that you didn't recognize them means I managed to disguise them. Yeah! <G> I'm glad you like this. Thanks for commenting. :-)

echoey
funny. so far, every tune i've heard today (even my latest) includes some form of tape echo... there must be something in the air...

this makes me think of gently falling leaves. it works!

thanks

echoes
Yes, must be all those leaves... I just heard your latest and it's very cool. Thanks for dropping by and for saying it worked for you. (the leaves) :-)

pencilitus fugits
You're quite amazing there... tweaking and arranging, and putting together something as tricky and pleasing as this is quite an art... and, may I add, in such a short time too, while babysitting! Very nice pencil-tool technique, and I see you are doing some fun experimenting with track echo, that actually worked nicely. It lined up so that at first I didn't even notice the echo, and then it slowly became apparent. Anyway, nice gentle tune, turning more bouncy and buffety, then returning to the original. I might have suggested ending on a different note (adding one last note down a whole step I think.) Overall, it was fun to listen to. Glad to hear you creating more music!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Roxylee said 4266 days ago (October 19th, 2007)
I'd like to take more credit, but...
All I did to make this was to drag loops to the tracks, rearrange the notes, then stretch the loops out, and option-drag more notes to place them where I wanted them. As for the echo, I didn't select any extra effects, so tithe echo must have already been in the particular loops I used. I'm glad it meshed well. Thank you for chatting me up and for being such a great friend and encourager. :-)

sweeeeet !!
i would have not guessed they were modified loops !! i do the same thing often but i don't do as good as you at disguising them. anyhow i liked it very much, relaxing and pleasant to my ears !!

Thanks, RJ
Yeah, I don't play the piano, oboe, clarinet, flute, piccolo, 12 string, or bass, so I faked it all with GB. <G> Thanks for having a listen.:-)

Wait A Minute!!
You mean all of what I just heard was loops? There was no piano playing or anything like that? Wow!! How'd you do that? This piece was quite lovely. I just drove from Yonkers, NY to Peekskill and back again....and oh yes, this song definitely reflects the red and gold scenes I witnessed on my morning drive!

I just commented back to Drakonis, explaining how I made the piece. It's not all that hard, but it is time consuming. Hey, did you see that Peekskill is my home town? Thank you for commenting. :-)

Lovely Autumn !
Mrs. Roxy, a real beautiful piece of music. Very lovely sounds going here .. awesome composition ! Such a nice song for the autumn. I noticed that most of the MacJammers here do a beautiful pieces for the autumn ! Wish to do ming !

Thanks for sharing Mrs. Roxy, loved the work
Roxylee said 4266 days ago (October 20th, 2007)
Thank you so much!
I didn't even realize there were so many autumn songs until I checked. How funny! I'm happy that you liked mine. Thank you for commenting on my music. :-)

Beautiful and interesting
Interesting and beautiful.

The volume level sounds low here, but that is not a problem as long as the next song I play isn't a loud one and I have forgotten to turn the volume down :)

Very original and inventive, and a palatable piece of music.

Roxylee said 4264 days ago (October 22nd, 2007)
Thank you, Johannes
I am happy that you enjoyed my instrumental. :-)Hmm... it doesn't sound any softer than the other songs in my iTunes folder, so I had no idea! . So perhaps I should record my GB tunes a bit louder in case the volume is too low for others...To do a sound adjustment, should I change the levels in GB, or elevate it in iTunes? There's a lot I need to learn about mixing and settings, and I appreciate your input. Thank you for coming by to listen. :-)

LOVELY
my favorite section is the delicate woodwinds - for me that sound is leaves going brown - a beautiful winding down of life and energy. cool experimenting, roxy - it paid off nicely, doncha think? i enjoyed your musical musings, anne

It always amazes me that people across the world could be listening to something I wrote. It's fun to take a loop and redo it. <G> Thank you for commenting on my song. :-)

poodyglitz said 4260 days ago (October 25th, 2007)
Funny...
As I was listening, my the question foremost in my mind was whether or not those were loops. Tweaking the loops gives you so much more. Good to see you putting in the effort. It worked.

Thanks for sharing.

My two cents...
roxylee...
I don't know how anyone manages to make sense out of loops. By themselves, there are such cool things out there for the taking. But it takes a really creative imagination to "loop 'em all together" ... I am really amazed by this little piece: a pastiche of colors that perfectly describe the season, esp. where you live! How fun this is. It going straight to my nano. I hope you will start doing more of this imaginative art. It is so peaceful and you seem to find just the right sounds to make your thoughts sing.
Peace.
Paul

Roxylee said 4258 days ago (October 27th, 2007)
Wow, Paul
Thank you. :-) It humbles me to think a great composer has my loop tune in his iPod. It's funny, I forget that autumn is different on the west coast. Yet you felt the leaf color feelings in the music. This is very cool to me. :-)

I agree with a lot of people here, you DO have a gift of painting pictures in people's heads! I love this piece, I could feel the cool, crisp air and almost smell the air...oh wait, my window's open. J/K =) Great job, keep 'em coming!
Roxylee said 4255 days ago (October 30th, 2007)
Thank you, Teresa
I'll have to paint you a picture of Thanksgiving dinner next time. <G> I'm glad it worked. This encourages me to compose more loop pieces.

Autumn...
This is nicely done!

Autumn is an especially inspiring subject for me as well. I live in a little valley in CA which is one of the very few places out here that has significant Fall color--not to rival New Engl, but exquisite nonetheless.

Could have sworn
I'd already commented on this. I guess I stopped by, listened and then dreamed I'd made a comment. Not a good sign! Anyway, this is very nice. You evoke the season very well, and I was surprised to realize you'd done everything in loops. Very cool piece. Nice, contented sound, and then the wonderful change of mood. Very nice work. Peace.

Very Good
I saw your Bio and I have to say that you undersell yourself. I have played with loops and getting themes like this are not easy. I am just glad that this forum and software like GarageBand have allowed musicians like us to blossom. Good choice of instruments. The woodwind loops are really clean. They can't be from the standard ones in GB can they? Do you use an orchestral loop pack.? Very peaceful and visual. Thanks for sharing
