Also, keep your eye out for the full post detailing his process for this one.

If you enjoyed this video (or the music especially), you should check out some more of Jack’s works. A full listing of his available music is published at /all-music/. Or, if you are in the mood for something specific, check out a category. See the subheading under music in the menu.


He will also be posting a breakdown of his thought processes and procedures that he discovered during this project. He will cover some issues with his DAW (Logic Pro), having a computer stolen, and what to (and what NOT to) do, plus extra tips, tricks, and secret features of Logic you may not know about (and how they work vs. how you think they should.


Also, visit the BIFSC website in early February to see the top 10! Think you would like to enter next year? It’s a ton of fun, so I’d say go for it!
