For Curiosity's Sake

I didn't have a lot of time to work on this, but with the time that I did have, I realized that this piece has helped me learn SO much more about how sample libraries work. I wanted to try to get out of my comfort zone of duplicating MIDI tracks and automation to different instruments, and instead, truly hone in on the intricacies of whatever library I was using to get the most realistic sounds and articulations out of it. It was all really fascinating!!


Just being curious about how deep each library I had access to goes, with its presets and built-in effects and mic positionings, gave me the motivation to actually finish it. Granted, I wish my brain didn't shut off at the end of the piece (I really couldn't figure out how else to end it, I'll probably fix that later), but I still feel like I accomplished my goal, and I can't wait to do it again! That's why I've named this piece "For Curiosity's Sake", just being curious kept me fueled and engaged enough to actually send in something for this contest, and I hope it continues to fuel my passion for music as a whole!


Libraries Included:


  • Spitfire Audio's Albion One (Mostly for sustained strings, brass, & woodwinds)
  • EastWest Composer Cloud (For more articulate strings and woodwinds, as well as some percussion)
  • Stock Ableton Sounds (Majority of the percussion)
