Motif Making with A Triad

Summary

The idea of this project was to use the notes “C”, “G”, and “E” to create a riff. The riff was made to be “catchy” and was created on an Onlinesequencer.net . The sequencer allowed for the use of different instruments and note lengths. We were then to save this riff as a “.midi” file and import it into Flat.io, screenshot the musical notes, export again, then later publish this to Soundcloud.com where we could share our short riffs with the world.

What I Learned

I found that the creation of a riff does not need to be a large production. Really you only need about four bars to create a “catchy” riff that can be used in a song. I also found that using an online sequencer is very useful to introducing using Garageband and gave me a good set up for what using a true music production program will be like.
