about

This is my entry for the Auntie Sin challenge (fawm.org/forums/topic/11131/). I had to make a synthesis of 2 songs:

- You Can't Find Me (fawm.org/songs/118447/)

Which is the antithesis of:

- Middle of the Road (fawm.org/songs/115282/)

Combining both was hard! One of them is about "meeting in the middle", while the other is "you can't find me". I had the idea of writing a song about someone who's always in one extreme or the other — "you can find me, but never in the middle", but when I tried writing some lyrics the inspiration came short.

What I did instead was to load both tracks into my DAW. I added a plugin to convert the sounds to MIDI, and then mapped each track to a different synthesizer. There, now they can play together!

I then recorded the track to a cassette tape, and recorded back to my DAW at half speed. I did this trick for another song during this FAWM and I really liked it, so I wanted to give it another try.
