Music re-engineering experiment: Sea Anemone II

The other day I took this tune from my friend, Adrian, and tried to re-engineer the sound a little. It didn’t get Adrian’s complete approval but that’s OK.

Here it is, the re-engineered version:

Compare it with the original:

I wanted to see if I could make anything out of just one single MP3 file. So now I know it can be done (of course the best way is to work on the actual GarageBand files but when that’s not possible, then now I know there’s another alternative).

I’ve posted some notes on how it was done at the SeaStars 2007 blog.

BTW, I’m currently collaborating with Adrian on an online music album project.
