Scoring noise/soundscapes- can it be done?

Author Scoring noise/soundscapes- can it be done?
Roycie Roller
Is it possible, or even worthwhile?
Is that what multi-track recordings are for?

Hard to describe, but i believe 'noise' (or soundscapes) can be arranged or written as 'musical' structures- orchestras, basically. All of the emotions can be conveyed, & free from noise for noise's sake- all that is carved out in the arranging.

It is inherently melodic, but not defined by scales & notes, though they are there.

One can do this using multi-track recordings, but i often 'hear' or imagine a sound in my mind quite clearly- & often if i try to recreate that with actual sounds, i either end up nowhere near what i first imagined, or corrupting it to the point i no longer can hear it as i first had, & it's lost for good.

Plus, it can take forever just messing around, not getting a lot done in terms of documenting the sound imagined, only to find you've been lead off on a tangent by the machines themselves, to some place completely different. That's when the realisation is made that the machine is dictating more of the sound than the mind (albiet, in collaboration).

Being able to score sound would save lots & lots of time & would be an accurate record of the sound in my mind- something i haven't achieved by using real sound itself.

Is there any software that can be used to score any 'noise' that falls outside of the conventional music codes of notes, etc?

Or a music software to convert thoughts to reality... smile

Not exactly what i was thinking, but this is amazing!

In fact, the more i think about it, the more i realise this is perfect for what i want to achieve. The possibilities are endless with this. And it makes menu based DAW's seem stupid (i already find them frustrating).

Thanks heaps!

give this a consider... the YouTube videos show some of the possibilities.

I like the ability to start with graphic sources and go from there, it has the potential to move you out of the 'comfort of the familiar' in a hurry, at least as a starting point.
