I absolutely love music, so this assignment was right up my alley. The idea of simplifying your favorite song to just the instrumental version is such a cool concept. By taking away the vocals of the song, I heard different parts in the instrumental version that I never caught in the original. It was very cool to be able to pay attention to the music that makes up the song. It makes you realize how the vocals to a song are just one component of the finished product, and honestly a pretty minor one at that.
I found a royalty free version of the song on the internet, and then processed it in Audacity to strip away the lyrics. I then exported the file as an MP3 and uploaded it onto my SoundCloud account. The end result sounds really cool.
Can you guess my favorite song?
