Chueg Ham Cingha

By Devieus on September 6, 2020 8:48 pm

I added a call/response system in the leads, so now it's broken up into two different tracks: one lead plays a call on the odd bars, the other will respond in the even ones.

This extra track also does a simple harmonization with that lead in the choruses, to make that section stand out more; intro/outro/bridge already stand out since I drop the drums there.

It's just one of those techniques you know exists, something you can instantly tell what it's supposed to be from name alone, and very obvious when pointed out, but not something you use all that much consciously.

Also the title is quite neat. Definitely feels like it should mean something South-East Asian, but it doesn't.

That's a pretty nice development, call/response is definitely a lot more engaging for the listener

I like the call and response! This one turned out super uplifting too.

There's a cool positivity to this week's track, like it's going to be a good day, or a good week. Let us pray to the procedural gods that it will be so.

Hey man that has a cool progression! Chueg Ham Cingha should be the title of the story this song accompanies. What are the bird sounds resulting from?

It sure is. Now that it's here, it's time to improve upon it.

Positive vibes only.

Here's to hoping. Blessings be upon ye all.

There's always a story in the title and song. I don't know what it is since a generator writes it. All we can do is contemplate it and find out.

The birds are a synth designed just so. I don't know what sort of improvements it needs, so it hasn't changed in months. People seem to like it as it is.

All your songs have a similar cadence and I dig that. That's also more than I can say for most weekly-beaters (no offense folks!). I'm assuming you use mostly analogue equipment?

I'm using a generator, like a procedural generator. I made a video that shows the entire creative process from beginning to end here:

I do kind of want different cadences though. The more varied my generator, the more application it'll have.

The title made me think of singha beers. Are you also programmatically generating the names?

Yep, there's a word generator that makes words guaranteed to be pronounceable. On the surface it looks like it's only used once, but every project names every track this way.

The video was 3 seconds long.
