The music contained in this CD is a departure from my usual style of producing music. It has been produced with nothing more than a computer, a mouse and commercially available software known as sound clips or loops. Most musicians use commercial available sound clips to enhance their own compositions or advertisers use them to produce TV or radio commercials. If you purchase the software and they are royalty free with no stipulation that they are for personal use only and you obtain the licence and receipt for your purchase, you then have the legitimacy to use them in your own productions. The royalty free unrestricted purpose usage privilege is only available to the purchaser and who will also be the licence holder. To copy the sound clips from a legitimate production in the mistaken belief that they are royalty free would encounter a copyright breach against the original software production company.
In this musical experiment I wanted to see how far I could go to use sound clips exclusively in creating complete compositions from an array of sound clips that represented several genres of music. It was a challenge and saw me working towards this object till the early hours of the morning over a very long period of time. To get the best out of the production was not easy. Not all sound clips within a particular genre are meaningful. When they are mixed and matched across a multi genre sound palette, they are far more interesting but this is a tedious exercise.
Metaphorically stated this situation would be akin to a chef who is invited into a kitchen that has been stocked with a large variety of ingredients that could make a number of dishes but there is not a recipe in sight and the only cooking facilities are a frying pan and a hotplate; metaphorically representing the computer and mouse.
One of the blessings of commercially produced royalty free no restrictive usage sound clips is that it creates an opportunity for people with little or no knowledge of music to become creative and try their hand at composing something of their own which could bring happiness which in turn would have immense value for the universe and humanity.
