Ask If You Can Bring A Friend

By Tone Matrix on January 14, 2018 9:05 pm

I took a bit of a darker turn this week since I was under the weather and slurping on NyQuil.  Which meant, also introducing myself to the show, "Black Mirror".  Other than the interesting stories (specifically Fifteen Million Merits & Be Right Back) they have pretty ominous scores behind them.  I was intrigued by how they started out happy and then quickly took a dark turn (usually due to bad weather or staring at their phones).  So I had a little fun and pretended to score my own imaginary scene.  A scene that involves death, afterlife and a possible reunion.  Amazing what NyQuil and some darkness can inspire! tongue  Anyway, I used a ragtime piano from my Roland RD-700GX as the main instrument and added in two Bass Station tracks towards the end to try and signify the digital/supernatural presence.  The EPiano towards the end is from the Roland as well.  Oh and some NYC subway muttering from freetousesounds.com.   Seeing as I have two seasons of Black Mirror left to watch, next week might be similar smile  Thanks for reading & listening!

Really loving the chord progression here. Beautiful stuff!

I think it would fit perfectly into the show. Really beautiful melodies here, and a perfect "fake old" piano sound. I also loved the darker end of the piece.

Your music is always very evocative and neaver fails to impress

Get well soon, mate!

Very plaintive and pretty and then really does take a turn towards the ominous at the end.

Black Mirror rules.

I like how the piano sounds a bit out of tune?  Must just have some clashing harmonics if it's virtual.  I like that though!  Makes it more real.
More of this please. smile

That piano tone is gorgeous. The pillowy attack of the strings is sublime.

Are you a piano player by trade? That chord progression is so thoughtful. Great work.

Can I bring a friend?

It sure is a pretty song.

Great show, I can see how it inspired this one, I hope you do some more like this, emotional and engaging

Very evocative! The occasional touch of pentatonics works great

Thanks! Not the greatest piano player and I stink at reading music but a few years of music theory classes sort of helped with my general understanding of chords smile  I do have a habit of unintentionally recycling my fav chords.  Damn you d minor! smile  Thanks again for listening!
