Underground in Edo (Relapse)

By Podling on February 15, 2020 10:49 am

Same starting point as last week, entering the chromatic scale into an online randomiser. This time I recorded 10 tracks of each random line of 12 notes, some in higher octaves. I lined all the notes up in each bar and listened for any nice chords... nope! I then moved the notes about on the timeline in an arpeggio formation, slowed down the bpm and added a delay. It was pretty chaotic so I experimented with muting some tracks and found a good balance.

The mid section with the twangier instrument is the same 10 tracks, different instrument, different selection of muted tracks. The last section is both the first and mid section played together.

Then added a beat and ran the beat through a bunch of effects and delays.

Peace! (Also made a video... enjoy)

Nice work with the randomiser.  This is quite atmospheric and moody.

this sounds very impressive, I love the surprising mood of it, sounds somehow haunted smile

The music pairs perfectly with the video, after a while I started feeling a bit anxious about being trapped in a loop of stairs, as I've had dreams about this before. Very evocative!

Welcome to my hell, you're doing quite well.

So I've been using VCV Rack a lot lately and I'm very, very curious what you'd do with it. It's a free virtual modular system. I've learned a lot from Omri Cohen's YouTube channel. I think you should check it out.
