This week I wanted to see what's possible in music with one single arp playing an entire track, after experimenting with a drone note on my Persephone track. I had a really hard time finishing this track because of the challenge set but managed to get something half decent out of it and even had time left to do some quick artwork.

Honestly that doesn't sound like too difficult a challenge because of the breathing motif. Maybe something to pursue next time you try it? Nice result though.

Thanks, also for the feedback. Not sure what "breathing motif" means though, could you explain in a musical theory for absolute dummies kind of way?

So the apreggio sort of goes into a sort of sine wave pattern where it goes up and down fast, but stays in the peaks a little longer, i.e. two high notes the shifting slightly down, then dropping to a lower register fast, where it then gently goes to the two lowest notes, then goes back up and repeats.

This is similar to the motions you do when you breathe.

So what you could do is change the intensity of the notes when they're at the peaks, either volume, tempo, or some filter or another and this sort of intensity can change throughout the song, so first it gets soft at the peaks, then it gets reverberated and around the end of the song it becomes echoed with variable delays.
