Today I created the audio tracks that would be played as back ground music during my piece. I created 5 different compositions, one serving as a main theme and another that was a slightly different variation of the main theme, one sad, one optimistic and one that set an expectant pace.

As the interviews were guiding the soundscapes and setting the pace of the piece it seemed logical to create them first. Each speaker was placed on an individual audio track.
