I finally picked up a copy of iLife ’04 for my Mac. I had been reading so much about GarageBand, that I had to give it a try. The result is a simple down-tempo techno tune called “Wheel Me Downstairs.” It’s the first song I have ever done. It took me about three hours and I’m most definitely not finished, but it’s a start. One of the rather funny things about someone like me trying to make electronic music is that I just can’t seem to fight the urge to make it a three-minute pop song. How many three-minute electronic songs do you know? Well, here’s one for you.
