In this composition project I made a song based off of the song “sans.” by Toby Fox. Personally I don’t believe that I’ve developed any skills, but I did better my understanding of GarageBand.
Audio File Formats and Definitions
AIFF (Audio Interchange File Format): stores standard CD-quality audio; similar to WAV (Higher Quality)
WAV (Waveform Audio File Format): CD audio; can be saved with different sampling and bit rates; similar to AIFF (Higher Quality)
MP3 (Audio File): Used to store audiobooks and music on a hard drive; Close to CD-quality sound; the higher quality sound comes from higher bit rates which also take up more storage space
MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface): music data: notes played, when notes are played, how long each note is played, and the velocity of each note played; used to be able to exchange and use information between software and hardware programs; no actual audio data

What I Learned & Problems I Solved
I learned how to find instruments that sound good together, and, I learned how to use GarageBand. One problem that I kept facing was not knowing how to actually compose a song; Since I’ve never had an interest in composing my own music it was difficult to stay on task. I eventually got over myself and just did whatever, and I think my composition turned out fine.
