Reawakening - draft

By Arcana on August 16, 2020 7:32 pm

Draft song "Reawakening", which is the upbeat version of "For The Day I Wake" that I did for Week 29. Except that this isn't really done, there's a lot of bad harmony and not quite there sound design but at the same time I wanted to put my energy into working on this instead of trying to compose something new.

Cool things about this track are:

* The Analog 4 continues to rock at making nice bass sounds
* The Digitone continues to make odd FM sounds that don't quite yet come together here. You can hear much of the oddness in the track where the sounds are not quite the right pitch
* Some of the piano melodies are pretty cool
* The middle of the track is a polyrhythmic section. It took a TON of time to get that section going and it's not really finalized yet either (transitions could use a lot more work and the rest of the song could do a better job hinting that this section will hit)

Things that still need work are pretty numerous but the harmonies are a little overly simplistic and the sound design/mixing is almost nonexistent for the most part.

I like what you're cooking here and the harmonies are complex rather than straight up bad. The transitions are pretty jarring though.
