Red Shift Skies

Stare out toward the horizon of the sunset of space.

What started out as a pretty boring track actually turned out rather interesting, but I'm so caught up with the fact that I did things differently that I don't know if I want to try "finishing" it in the session.

Some things that happened:

1. I played the Linnstrument for the chords and the melody.
2. I used some Alchemy default patch with a sequence that's better than the default Logic Arp
3. I learned more about how to use Stutter Edit 2.
4. In the pluck arp, I didn't always play 8th notes and varied the rhythm up in the chorus. Because DUH why wouldn't you but for some reason this was some kind of huge revelation to me.
5. I made the drums less dry (especially that default "punch you in the face snare" that I always use) and toned the drums down to be snappier. One day I'll do better with my kick design and my default kit but today isn't that day (and really, the kick here while simple does its job).
