AS Component 2 - Technology-based Composition Course Image

Lesson Overview

This is an example project and designed to include a large number of alternate audio manipulation and editing techniques.
As a result to best demonstrate individual examples the project has been divided up into tracks

based upon techniques used as to provided maximum examples to learn from.
Included at the end of the project after its strict end point are the two samples in their original form and unedited for reference purposes. These are track 1 and 2 respectively. track 3 onwards are labeled with the track type and a shorthand of the effects or technique applied.

Task List:


  • Each sample must appear in its entirety during the composition

  • An element of synthesis is required

  • Use of creative effects is required

  • Automation and or real time control is required

  • Samples or loops must be manipulated in multiple ways

  • You must document how sample have been manipulated
