Glistening Viscera

By Avarine on May 27, 2018 9:06 am

On Tuesday I started working on a housey track.
On Thursday and Friday I was home sick, did some work on the track, but was feeling too poorly to do much, just laid down some melodies and then gave up.
On Saturday I added some chords and some abstract vocals.
On Sunday I removed the vocals, which sounded terrible, added even more chords, had the house beat evolve into more of a rock beat, then added even more chords.
Then I stopped to make a cup of tea and grapple with my growing irritation at having to listen to my annoying track. I decided it wasn't worth forcing myself to keep listening to it.
I started a new, completely different track, and this is it.
First foray into something a bit ambient. Tools used were Waldorf Blofeld, Roland Gaia, a piece of paper, myself breathing, and a houseplant.

I like it, maybe not as ambient as it could've been, but it's there.

Very pleasant end results (especially considering the title).

Somehow the breathing sounds and other found noises really add something interesting to this. Extra props for using a houseplant.

It should be wonderful to see your approach in a video. You choosed a more "experimental" way of doing this and kudos to you for discarding a whole track (I think we all been there, trying to make sense of 3 or 4 days of work that leads nowhere).

For some reason, it reminds me of someone having a cup of tea and staring at his/her backyard.
