It Makes a Sound

By halfbyte on January 4, 2024 7:42 pm

I had a lot of fun last week building a beat with Klevgrand's "Speldosa" (The plugin done in collab with Wintergatan) and I wanted to see if I can do it again. The result is a laid back, slightly boring ambient-ish kinda track.

I wanted to start this week with something quick as I knew I didn't have much time and I wanted to see how much time I need to invest to get something done.

One thing I noticed with this beat and the one from last week is that I need to figure out how to do proper chord progressions with this arpeggio-style music box thing (Which I believe is why this song is kinda boring)

Oh well, next time.

This is 'patient' and pleasant, not 'boring' at all good sir, nice!

This is my jam! For something you've done in a rush, it's pretty good

I like it!

I really love how you have these two consistent elements that are moving at entirely different speeds. the bright, harsh, buzzyness is speeding around the track while the reverby chimes are taking a nice slow walk through it.

and I agree with Ent, it's patient. it's got that kind of... hypnotic feel where it's less about active changes and more about vibing.

Yeah, a variation or two on the Speldosa melody would've been nice, but you're making up for it with the drums and other small details sprinkled throughout wink
