Excellent atmospheric track. The trumpet really fits into the soundscape. Very nice.

How does this composition come to be? Is this arranged on the computer or jammed live or maybe both?

This piece is based around a modular synth patch where I recorded a single take performance with it into the computer.  I then played the track back and decided a dreamy trumpet could work in a couple of sections so I improvised those lines during playback (via a midi keyboard as I can't play trumpet).  Then the third and final run through was improvising guitar over the entire piece.  Done!  smile

So a lot of time is spent constructing the modular synth patch with the actual performance of it being largely improvised although key signatures and particular scales/harmonies are taken into account in the planning and during the improvisations.  The trumpet was based around a simple improvised melody with the improvised guitar having open reign to do whatever came to mind.

wow sounds straight forward but im sure it wasnt as easy as it sounds. Whenever I sense musicianship not in the eletronic musician way I ask whether or not the arrangement was just penciled in or was it jammed over. I felt this one was jammed over but also arrange to make it flow. Great work on this one!

Thanks man.  A lot of planning goes into the modular patch which is essentially the crux of the composition which can also be performed and interacted with.  The secondary layers are definitely more jamming out improvisation.  Just finishing up this weeks piece which I think you might find interesting also?
