Started this track in 2011 and have five variations of it. Various lengths. Pulled the trigger on this one today. Still pretty uncertain about it, but hopefully WB family can help me decide. This is supposed to be a very suspicious mystery. I imagine walking down a dark city street (for some reason this song takes place in England in my mind) and something makes you turn down a corner you normally wouldn't.
At the 'third act' of the piece, you see the shocking thing you were hoping you wouldn't find. This is the twist ending (what a twist!). I can't tell if the drums should fade out earlier, leaving you with the seasick nausea sine wave bass, or the drums should continue has that haunting, constant reminder: "This is really happening."
The word loading has a definition topically related to electricity: "The addition of inductance to a transmission line to improve its transmission characteristics" I related that "spark" sound to electricity somehow. Also the "voice drone" thing reminded me of the loading screen for the video game Halo (probably the greatest loading screen of all time). Regarding our "horror film" - I feel like the tension and fear should be loading up. Another definition: "A weight placed on something else; a burden" - I believe the sine wave bass to be a burden, sonically and emotionally.
Of course shoutout to Friday the 13th composer Harry Manfredini who solidified the echoing sound as a horrifying thing in my mind. Let me know what you think and if there are any problems you see with the track! This track was created in Reason, and back then, I didn't really understand how to automate things, so I think some of this is "played live". I am almost hoping to get the seal of approval from you all because I don't to go back and fiddle with the session file! I guess the real test is if I can live with this for the next week! :-)
