Track Info

This is the first time I submit a track to Disquiet Junto. My approach was to see what I can do with the several tracks/sounds and get more inspiration out of it. At first I wanted to do an ambient-like song but very soon it was clear for me that a beat would give it a more monotone working-like feel I was after. I searched for parts which I could mangle until they sounded like drums. I`ve chosen this type of song because shopping, especially when thinking of shopping malls, always has something repetitive in it. You enter the mall/shop, you walk around, you choose something, you walk to the person who takes your money and then you walk outside the shop/mall. This reminds more on a march, left-right-left-right. However, without a beat this wouldn`t be the shopping experience I know. I just used software, Ableton Live as DAW, and lots of plugins (Stillwell, Togu Audio Line, Softube, Waves, Soundtoys). Monitoring was a AKG 701 headphone.
