Electronic Composition
2 of 2


It’s common for electronic composers and producers to think of texture a little differently from acoustic composers. We can learn a lot about composition and our own tendencies by creating music in new genres and adopting their best practices. A skilled composer is always aware of the foreground, midground, and background of a piece of music.

Composition Assignment

Start mixing your composition by organizing your project into the three layers we discussed (foreground, midground, and background). Change the volume of each track so that they are balanced with each other and each fit into the mix without sticking out more than necessary.
