Over-Reactor

By Sodabelly on February 9, 2020 9:12 pm

I recently began a collaboration with an old friend in the hopes of producing some strange electronic music, this is a rough mix of one of the tracks that we worked on this past week. I'll see if he has a link to some of his music, in the meantime you can visit his shop to check out his awesome collage artwork and perhaps buy one because he is a true struggling artist and I commend him for his tenacity.

Enjoy the track! smile

Really cool track, I think my favorite little nuance is towards the center where there's a melodic phrase that is what I kind of describe as a bouncing arpeggio. I dunno if there's an actual musical term for it, pedaling on a root note  and reaching further down the scale in increments. Also, I appreciate the word play in the title smile

I really like the way this one builds up and then kind eases out at the end.  Also dug the positive vibe it gave off throughout.  Lots of fun to zone out to.

Thanks! I'm not sure if there's a term for an arpeggio and how it moves in relation to the root note, but then again my music theory knowledge leaves alot to be desired...If you ever find out, let me know smile

This is amazing.  When that low chord faded in, it got emotional for me.  This stands next to Boards of Canada in my opinion.  Really A++ effort here.  Great synth choices and rhythm.

Every note here seems textured and placed to build the optimal lil house to get calm in. Incredible work!
