A Street

This piece started out as a two track acoustic piano jam, processed one of the tracks so that it sounds more like a distorted guitar. Added some drum machines, then some acoustic drums (with each part recorded individually - I really need to rent a proper rehearsal studio again so that I can multi track drums more easily!) and a touch of virtual piano.

Excellent! Great transformation on the distorted piano.

My enjoyment of this track increased on reading your description, and I was already really enjoying the piece!
I might try this approach myself, using a rendered virtual piano - I've mostly been focusing on trying to make a piano sound believably like a wind harp, with no luck.

Excellent and exciting work.
I like the atmo and the resonant tones in there smile

Awesome, I would have never guessed the distorted guitar is a piano

Excellent track again. I adore the tempo, it gives the instruments time to breathe.
Good luck finding your rehearsal studio soon.

Thank you for listening and your kind comments!

Love the softness of the distortion actually.  Subtle.  Only criticism would be the snare sound for such a subdued track but that's just me being picky  smile  Lovely stuff as always.
