GarageBand Loop Composition


For this assignment, you will explore the creative possibilities of digital audio within Apple's GarageBand software application. In creating your song, you should apply creative techniques to pre-recorded digital audio loops available within GarageBand.


Compose a 3-5 minute song in GarageBand using built-in digital audio loops. You may expand your sonic pallet by downloading additional loops for GarageBand from 3rd-party vendors. Do not record anything yourself, or apply MIDI or synthesized sound. Rather, limit your source material to loops built into or created for GarageBand.


Upon completion of your composition, upload an MP3 version of your song (not the GarageBand file!) to the GarageBand Composition #1 assignment page in the course wiki.
