Draft 1—5/24/2002. ACID. Tweaked 4/2/06.
My first excursion into computer based music, a mixture of canned loops and my own sounds.
I was unemployed at the time, when a cousin sent me some money to pay my bills and instead I used it to buy software (ACID Pro 3.0). Soon afterward I got a job as a furniture installer (I’d been a screen printer since 1988) and had trouble staying awake once I got home, at that point in my life being extremely out of shape (the worst outcome of this exhaustion is that I stopped reading to my daughters at bedtime because I was always falling asleep soon after opening the book)…it was almost a year before my next composition in ACID.
Almost all my compositions begin as instrumentals—this one came close to remaining one, with just a nonsense ad lib.
