Prometheus(ii)

By Plantrain on August 7, 2016 10:00 pm

Sort of a continuation of last week. I started out recording a piece on acoustic piano using the notes from the Prometheus Chord. It sounded like complete rubbish. (Not the chord's fault, I just couldn't come up with a single usable musical idea.)
Paulstretch to the rescue: I compressed what I had recorded down to around 8 seconds, and then stretched it to a little over two minutes. Then I recorded a piano improvisation with Pianoteq using the notes from the chord as the scale, moved some overly sloppy notes, but did very little editing other than that.

Very nice.  It sounds somehow cold and majestic.

This is brilliant. Great use of dynamics throughout. Downloaded.

I hear no rubbish smile but I do hear some really cool harmony.  It has that cinematic quality where it could fit perfectly in the 'whodunit' reveal of a movie.  Like Memento or something smile Nice work!

Thank you! I think Paulstretch can make anything sound good, but of course it makes most things sound like Paulstretch, so it probably shouldn't be overdone.
I've had no time to listen to any other tracks this last week, will try to catch up!
