sylph's apricity

By Reilly Farrell on August 19, 2020 3:06 pm

First and foremost, I hope everyone's doing okay – especially those on the frontlines of natural disasters right now. This has been a terrifying week, and I'm hoping and praying for everyone's safety.

Sometimes I revisit old tracks to make new ones. This week I wanted to remake "sylph", and I wound up throwing in nods to a few other tracks. Can't say I'm especially proud of their sound quality anymore, but here are the originals if anyone's curious:

(On a bright note, and with the help of the good people at Korg's customer service department, I finally got KORG M1 back up and running. There are way more important things to worry about right now, but I still really appreciate their help and I'm happy to get those sounds back.)

Oh yeah, the warmth and the movement of this track really work for me. Great stuff!

I just want to loop this one endlessly. Nice work!!!

That's a really awesome progression, I love movement from the first to the second chord with the underlying bass note. If my theory is right, they're both major chords but it sounds kind of minory, like a subtle and pensive mood. I also like the layering of ideas that started happening at 1:45, really cool track overall.

I love the drum beat: Starting with that beat made be really want to hear the rest of the track. It made me think of She wants revenge - Tear you apart (which is a good thing, be warned explicit lyrics) until the other instruments came in. Gorgeous chords progression, with the sparse bells and that arp tying it all together quite nicely in the end!

The drum beat brings a lot of energy to the track. The leads are dreamy, reflexive. This is a good relaxing track.

I do like the calmness of the old one better, but this is a good take on it.

Thanks! Actually, the chord progression for the first part starts with a minor chord followed by two major chords, but I"m glad to hear it worked out okay. smile

I feel you about the old track. I don't think it holds up too well anymore, but I do miss writing things that were less driving and more atmospheric. I feel like I need to get back into that at some point this year.

Ayyyy, good to hear man!  Yeah that upgrade to Catalina was like a kick in the dick to my way of life.  Luckily I found some workarounds too.

Really digging this track.  Its somehow really chill and tense at the same time.
