19 Weekly Beats 2024 Around The Fountain

By thgirwnhoj on May 12, 2024 11:51 pm

This song has two different drum beats, the one you hear at the beginning that has some variation to the kick and hi hat patterns, and then a typical four-on-the-floor dance beat at the drops. When I was composing it, I was going back and forth whether or not I should use one or the other and I ended up using both. I was struggling with whether I was trying to add variation to the rhythm just for complexity's sake and not for any other reason. I think the song has some elements that speak to that, specifically the clavichord sound that plays on every quarter note. That was just me randomly playing notes on my Push 2 while the Part A, more complex drum beat was playing. Then I let it play over a drum beat where the kick played on every quarter note and the two sounds playing together gave the part an entirely different feel.
