This week I've been messing with some ideas that didn't take me anywhere. Colorful Grey and I tried a collab that we hope will become reality this next week, however after life and time constrains it was Sunday afternoon and I still didn't had any particular idea.
I was kinda fixed on building my tune over certain beat I built on my hardware sampler, and maybe that blinded me and made me force things too much. I chopped some afro rhythms without getting any concrete vibe, then tried adding some solid drum machine kicks and snares using Ableton... Long story short I ended with a mess of sampled off-beat congas (sort of) and a Yamaha RX21 crap. What's the best way to unify a whole arrangement: resampling the whole thing into my E-MU e6400 and make new chops, with some 11025 kHz frequency for extra crunchiness
The melodic part? 3 hours before the deadline I took a really short guitar sample and started to mess with the sampler's filters and envelopes, and then throw it all back to Ableton, and rebuilt it from there.
Final result: an almost ridiculous simple piece with three tracks (beat, pad/atmosphere, last minute piano).
Hope it's not too crude for you guys. Really hoping to bring you a more pollished and well thought piece next week
