I Can Do That

Title: Apollo Lee – I Can Do That (Version 1)
Date: January 10, 2008
Software: Logic Pro 8 + Ableton Live 5.2.2
Genre: House
Timing: 4:23 @ 128 bpm

What I Like About It

  1. I arranged a full-length track for the first time ever in Ableton Live.
  2. The guitar/flute riff happened by accident, but I dig it.
  3. The rhythm chord sounds like it’s saying “I Can Do That.”
  4. I can imagine putting a singer on top of this.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. Transitions are abrupt and pickup notes haven’t been trimmed.
  2. The mixdown is pretty amateur.
  3. The guitar and the flute echo sound out of tune with each other.
  4. We’re still in 8 bar layering mode. There’s no form or direction.
  5. The pad doesn’t continue and, in quiet parts, it ends abruptly and jarringly.

Note: These are rough drafts. Constructive criticism is welcomed, of course.
