Introspection (2011)

Introspection was improvised using Synthology’s Ivory piano sample. The midi data was copied to two additional midi tracks where I improvised the mixing/orchestration of two different synth pads that come available with Ivory.  While the piano midi track played back, a synth pad was brought in and out at varying dynamic levels.   The next step was to muted the pad and added a different synth pad to the captured improvisation and once again begin mixing with various dynamic swells.  I was unsure what the result might be since I was not reacting in my decisions to the dynamic shifts of the first synth. The final step was to unmuted the first pad and adjust the various levels of the two synths to reach the end result.
