Motion Theme is a song I wrote as a theme song for an open source project I have managed for many years called Motion. Motion is a program that monitors the video signal from cameras and detects if something moves.

But this song is not so much about the project as it is a tribute to the most active and persistent contributor Angel Carpintero. A man I am proud to call my friend. A man I actually never met in person or even spoke to on the phone. But yet we have worked together on this hobby project for the past 7 years or so, just for the fun of it.

Angel is from Barcelona. And that is why this Motion Theme has a strong Catalan/Spanish influence. It also has a bit of techno base arpeggiator. After all it is the theme of a pretty geek project.

The tune is composed and recorded using only the software instruments and no loops in Garageband on an iPad. It was a challenge to record the fast notes on the guitars. I spent an entire Sunday to get it right. On the iPad you cannot move individual notes. You can split the thing up in small pieces and keep on playing until to get it right. I later used Logic Studio to mix the balance of the instruments and maybe fix a note or two. But the tune sounds pretty much like it did on the iPad. Amazing what you can do with very little on an iPad.

This one is for you Angel. I hope you like it. And thanks!

Besides the standard license - the Motion project is granted unlimited license to use this tune in anything related to the Motion project without prior permission.
