What I have done for my capstone project was I created 3 beats. These beats are posted publicly on youtube for everyone to listen to. Each beat has its own unique sound as all of them were made using the same process. When I made these beats I used a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) called FL studios. This software is a workstation for people to record and make beats in. The goal of my capstone was to explore the music production process and use what I learned to create different beats. In order for me to learn how to make beats I had to watch youtube tutorials. I watched many tutorials on how to use FL studios and to learn how to create a beat. I learned that there are many ways you can start your beat. The common steps music producers use is brainstorming, building, arranging, then mixing. These steps helped me understand the foundations of the music production process. What I learned from this project is that music is all about feeling. People can’t just force the process people have to let the music speak to them. Letting the flow of the sound and being patient helps drive people’s creative process. The creative process helped me find my workflow as well. This project has helped me improve my work ethic. My capstone has allowed me to see the creative side of myself. Being able to have a creative process will take me far in life.
