Like my first submission last week, parts of this have been on the hard drive for a little while. Finished an arrangement this week and decided to add the double time drum and bass-ey section in the middle.
Started the song with the chords (Bb minor I think) on the awesome rhodes instrument in Ableton. Wrote the chords and drums while staying with family during a windstorm-caused power outage that knocked a huge tree down across my yard. I think I was sitting in my Dad's comfy old recliner actually. It was a minor key kind of week.
Built from there, then took it to a jam where once again collaborator AM Faulks laid down a lovely live guitar melody and one of the keyboard lines from Garageband on his ipod (if I remember right). Someone said one of the bass line's reminded them of Outkast's Ms. Jackson. I gotta go listen to that. Added brief vocals during that same live jam (they begin at the end), then laid on the vocoder thick. This week when adding the drum and bass double-time part, I chopped up the vocal and tapped out some parts on the Push that kind of sound like vinyl scratching.
