Moorlands Encounter

By Brackleforth on January 29, 2016 8:46 pm

6/8 time, Prometheus scale. Transposition numbers are 2 - 2 - 2 - 3 - 1 - 2.
The cello rhythm is from the Final Fantasy Tactics track entitled "Desert Land". It is an effective rhythm for making 6/8 sound more like a duple meter - a marchlike one-two one-two feel.
For reference, here it is in sixteenth notes: |o--o--o-o-oo|oo-o-oo-o-oo|
I may return to this particular scale. It is a challenging one to use because of the missing dominant note after a raised fourth.

Mr forth.... once again you've made a great track.  Great suspense.  Digging the wholetone vibe. Personally felt like the EQ lacked a bit of mid range... but still say well.

Thanks for listening cTrix smile I totally get what you mean about the EQ - sometimes results from using too many samples from the same soundbank. I'll try and be mindful of that. Always appreciate cc

oh~~~gooooooood!!!!!!
cool rhythm 6/8 sound.

I like to change in such a song, an important place to 3/4(In order to aim the effect of half-tempo).

Very cinematic vibes on this one. It slowly builds tension while taking unexplored paths
