Sands from the Stars

By Arcana on May 24, 2020 7:48 pm

Consider your world and all of what arrives from worlds just like it.


Notes: A track intended to be emotional and distant, but hopeful rather than sad. A lot of practice here on harmony bits, like using suspensions, second inversions, varied chord progressions to move away from the tonic, and long sustains (which is partly attained through reverb and delay trickery). Uses 6/8 to give you that kind of mystic sleepy feeling. Uses piano and strings because those are the "here's how you make a track emotional" instruments.
