We Will Float

By miraclemiles on October 2, 2016 11:57 pm

I some mash a few ideas together: I have a few songs I've made this year that really should have been two different songs (or more). So this week I took part of a song from back in June, and extended it, modifed, and added a little to it to make this weeks song. Could use more mix / mastering work, and some thinning out in places too. Acoustic guitar: a quick part recorded during session with Chris Barr. The "Lead" synth sounds that carry melody coming in midway are from a Dave Smith Pro 2 synth samples turned into Ableton instrument by Francis Preve and Afro DJ Mac. Main pulsing pad is Wurly Max for Live instrument, side chained to kick. The "twinkling" pad under everything also from an Ableton instrument pack created by Afro DJ Mac (I play around with a lot of his stuff). I don't love the simple bassline this has, and would like to have some vocals eventually as well. Title, sounded kind of "float" to me wink, and floating sounds fun.

I like the propulsive beat.  It gives the track a very upbeat vibe.  I could see a "funkier" bassline working well, but what's there is perfectly serviceable.

Conversely I *do* love the simple bass line. It adds a real weightless significance and tension.  Love this.
