Initial Enterprise

Music and Audio by David Deyo

A number of years ago I spent time working with software that took snippets of instrumentals called loops and combined them using software called Acid Music. The software makes it possible to layer and repeat these instrumental loops, altering their tempo and pitch as well as cutting them apart and re-arranging them. The result is a finished music track that you could probably describe more as the work of a producer than someone who wrote and recorded all the sounds.

Years ago I found and bought a CD containing various sound effects from the original Star Trek television series. When I began exploring using computers to produce tracks of music, I thought it would be fun to slip some of these sound effects into each track. Part of the fun of listening to these is finding out how many sound effects you can find and indentifying which ones they are. Some are obvious. Others trickier.
