Recently I’ve had a kind of interesting hobby. It’s a hobby of making digital music. There are a lot of different levels you can do. Starting off from very very basic which is pretty much where I am, and up to a professional level.
What you do is you get one of these pieces of software called a DAW or an digital audio workstation, which is basically a framework within what you could write and create digital music. The most easiest way is if you can buy a whole bunch of preset loops and you can drop in the software.
You kind of set the key signature in the BPM, the beats per minute, of your song. Then drop these loops and they’ll conform to the key signature and the beats which is almost like building a song with a bunch of pieces of Legos.
Snap Together Sounds
This is pretty easy and you can put a song together without really knowing what you’re doing. It will sound pretty decent, as will always fit the structure the same beats per minute. The second level which is like a lifetime of learning is when you actually write your own music.
You have your own music that you written that’s played by these digital instruments. These digital instruments can either be synthesizers or they can be actually recorded instrument. So, for example, if you play a certain note on your electronic music it will trigger a recorded sound from an actual piano.
There’s a lot of ways you can write very very complicated music if you’re so inclined. If you know music well enough you can write an entire symphony and have it played by your own private orchestra. Needless to say there’s a huge learning curve.
Not just the software but music theory itself. If you’re just beginning this can provide a lifetime entertainment. There’re a lot of tutorials online, free YouTube videos. Paid tutorials that are very very expensive and you can take a lot of time going through them.
Local DJ Show
Recently I went to see this guy in my neighborhood. He’s a local DJ and if you’re any kind of businessperson one way to get new customers is to give a free how-to speech in your local neighborhood and that will be a good way to demonstrate yourself your brand your skills.
Kind of let people know the you’re around and that’s kinda what this guy did. He would give, he gave like a how-to on how to perform if you’re a digital music producer. A lot of tips for people and he was also doing this so he could let people know that he was a DJ and he performed at various venues throughout town.
He told us very interesting story about one of his early mentors and this guy was a psychologist. He was originally interested in music because if you study ancient cultures almost every ancient culture has the idea of playing drums specifically to augment your consciousness.
Ancient Brainwave Manipulation
What they would commonly do is sit around the campfire at night get into an altered state through whatever type of hallucinogenic drugs they had available. Then they would play these drumbeats at a certain frequency and the drumbeats played at a certain frequency would alter people’s brain waves. It would allow them to have like a spiritual experience based on these altered brain waves.
His idea was to take the idea from the Tuvan throat singers, and Tuvan throat singers can sing two tones at once. You have a very very advanced skill of augmenting their actual structure of their throat so they can sing two tones at once. This is very very difficult takes a lot of training.
His idea was to create two brain waves in mind it once because just like throat singing most people can only hold one note when they sang and most people can only hold one brainwave when they think. His idea was what would happen if you could create some kind of sounds that would hold two different brain waves at once.
What he effectively did was he figured out a way to create the surface structure beat that would alter people’s brain waves on one level and then embedded within the music was an LFO, a focused low-frequency-oscillator that would sweep their subconscious brain waves from delta to theta to alpha to theta to delta and back and forth.
Dual Induction Brainwaves
He would play this sweeping subconscious brainwave at the same time people were listening to the surface structure drumbeat and he just wanted to see what happens so he set up this kind of free rave concert in the desert.
He didn’t tell people what he was doing. For four hours he played this music with this dual induction brain waves embedded into the sound and he just wanted to see what would happen and so after playing these sounds were about four hours out in the desert a lot of people just kind of camped out.
Unfortunately what happened the next morning when they woke up most of them had had their memories completely wipeed. They had woken up with amnesia. Nobody remembered how they got there. Nobody remembered who they were. They would all get out their IDs and forget. They would look at their their drivers license and not recognize the picture. Not recognize their own name. Not recognize their own address.
Accidental Memory Erasure
What this guy did was inadvertently create this amnesia generating set of sounds that if you listen to the sounds for four hours constantly by holding your surface structure brainwave at a certain level by the drumbeats and by moving your subconscious brainwave back and forth with in tune with the brainwave embedded LFO all this would essentially wipe your memory.
He left all the people on the desert without really following up to see what would happen to them.
This guy give a pretty interesting demonstration. A lot of the techniques. His shows were pretty interesting.
Spend Tons Of Money
One of my big problems with making digital music is it can get extremely expensive. For example if you want if you buy basic software set up it can cost about 500 bucks. But that’s just the beginning.
There’s actually an endless amount of plug-ins. These virtual instruments, Virtual synthesizers, these effect racks that you could put in.
You can spend a lot of money doing this. So if you’re the kind of person spends and spends it’s dangerous. Getting into the habit of making digital music can be very very expensive but if you can control yourself and and not buy so much it could be a fantastic hobby.
Fantastic Lifelong Hobby
So long as you have the money and so long as you have the time you can spend a lot of interesting evenings playing around with making music.
