Those Old Milk Cartons

By vimster on July 11, 2020 2:29 pm

This track is like those old milk cartons you used to get before the nice twist-top things now: it was really hard to get into, brute-forced it and subsequently ended up with a mess. But I do like the ideas and the chords, just topped and tailed it and got it out the door.

Much like those old cartons, I didn't have any issue with this at all.

Milky and dreamy.

wobbly wavy pads and bass riding along

Those slight bends in the bass are really fun. The broken chords are interesting, a lot of tonal and pitch variations make that sound cool. I'd consider what variations you could add in the middle of the phrases - maybe a few grace notes as fills or some changes in the bass. I think my favorite sound is the vox-like sound, you could make a track that uses that as a feature by itself.

Cheers for the constructive feedback. I honestly can't say I understood everything you said, for me making music is several parts intuition and inspiration, tend to see how things pan out rather than plan them. This one was a bit of a struggle, it was only a few bars for a fair while and I had to really stretch my brain to extend it out to what it became.
