The Press Release for my senior thesis presentation!
Another Music Tech Finale assignment. This time I was given a Bach Chorale with a chord analysis and asked to recreate it in Finale. It didn’t come out quite as well as the last one, but it was still cool to explore more of Finale’s features. It all comes with practice!
Another Music Tech assignment; I was given a lead sheet and asked to recreate it in Finale.
This is a video recording I had to do for my Music Tech class. It gave me a chance to see what both video/audio recording and editing were like. There was somehow a skip in the audio unfortunately, so I also had to skip the video to match it up. It definitely has its flaws, but I learned from this experience!
This page will include song analyses’, Finale documents/sheet music, etc.
Levi Manuel is a composer and multi-instrumentalist. Born and raised in Fredericksburg, VA, his musical life began by learning the violin when he was 11, which he continued to play through high school. Shortly after, he picked up guitar and has since learned how to play bass guitar, piano, and drums. Throughout high school, he performed in a series of hard rock and progressive metal bands in his hometown as a guitarist and a bass guitarist. He is currently a bass guitarist for the University of Mary Washington jazz ensemble, which has performed along groups such as the White House Band.
Levi began composing original pieces in 2016 under the instruction of Dr. Mark Snyder. His first public original composition performance was at the 2016 Electro-Acoustic Barn Dance, in which he performed his piece Rebirth with live mixing. His latest composition is titled Sonic Depths, which was debuted in Spring 2017 during his senior thesis presentation.
Levi graduated from the University of Mary Washington in 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. He has since begun to pursue his Masters degree in Education, so that he may teach music in the near future! In his free time, Levi enjoys playing video games, watching shows on Netflix, spending time with friends, family, and his girlfriend, and walking and playing with his perfect canine companion. Levi is also a frequent concert-goer, as well as an avid road-tripper and beach lover.
This link will take you to a 30 second ad I had to make for my music tech class. This was my first time using a MIDI software (Logic Pro X), and I made the track using loops.
