Mountain Ascent

By Aletheia on August 9, 2020 7:21 pm

In a way this Weekly Beats Challenge follows my ascension in music making, partly using virtual modular synths. With this type of process, it is most frequently rather difficult to create sections and parts with the ease you have in a DAW. But with every patch I have improved in this aspect and this week I present another step towards the peak.  In the key of A minor / F lydian, I worked with creative use of muting and clock divisions so I can create more pauses, breathing of melodies and interesting rhythms. Even the drums are muted and unmuted by a counter. To this I added an improvised bass guitar recorded in one take.

great track - really enjoyed the improv bass.  Interesting start/stop drums with the mute effect.

This is a really cool piece, very expressive and a long explorative journey. Pretty much the kind of stuff I'm into, I'm especially a sucker for the incorporation of bass guitar.

Thanks guys smile Yes, whenever I am messing around with synth I tend to end up with sounds in the mid and high range so adding the bass guitar is natural and brings a more organic and expressive layer to all the sequencing.
