For no particular reason

By laguna on April 3, 2016 11:40 pm

This week I visited a dear friend in Barcelona. Since my travel was fron Friday to Sunday, I had to finish WB at thrusday, with a small Sunday window to maybe create some quick artwork and upload.

I made a brief departure from my late hip hop influenced stuff and came with this little and really simple piano and guitar piece. Lots of delay a and ambience layers to embelish an almost ridiculouslly schematic melody. I don't consider myself a guitarrist, but I know more or less how to place my fingers and multitrack so...

Just three tracks on Ableton Live, ModArt Pianoteq 5 and M4L Diffuse, automated tempo changes to simulate "the pianist' expressivity" and a few stompboxes and cables.

Nothing really fancy behind the idea. Just this beat maker messing with a piano and some strings... For no particular reason smile

Hope to catch up with the comments this week. I have to do some more travelling tomorrow but you all guys are doing amazing music! Really looking forward to listen, download and comment.

Fav'd and downloaded: there's that lush reverb, but also the compelling piano ostinato that's both placid and (somehow) propulsive.  The ambient guitar really makes it--it's like 80s Eno doing something with Birdsongs of the Mesozoic.  Great, great stuff.

Ha, and you're always saying you need to have your technology and struggle with the "simpler sounds" -- this is a great piece that is so "simple!" I mean I know it's not simple, but I always think that each piece of music defines its own horizon, so to speak, and does not need more than it has. Needless to say, I think this is a wonderful piece. I hope you enjoyed it and explore this neighborhood more :-) And of course do crazy crossover and new stuff :-))

Wonderful piece, the guitar works really well to create the perfect atmosphere for the track!

A very calming track that kind of reminded me of Bear Mcreary's quieter themes during the Walking Dead smile very cool!
