Underwater Tribes

By ViridianLoom on June 28, 2020 9:23 pm

I'm having a hard time getting the creative juices flowing this week. This is the most minimal effort thing I've done this year but shit, at least we're at the halfway point now.

Nothing special going on here, just really muted vibe in B Locrian. I had another song I was working on but I just wasn't feeling it either. It had one really cool riff but i couldn't seem to compose anything around it that sounded natural. Do you ever have that problem where you've listened to an idea so much that it loses its original impact? The closest thing I can compare that to is like, you're cooking a meal or something and you're tasting it as you go. Except you've picked at the food so much that you've basically eaten the meal before it was finished. haha. That's what happened with the first idea this week. 

Sometime over the next few weeks what I'm wanting to do is something inspired by Rob Crow. He has a knack for taking like two riffs and making entire songs out of them. That's what I intended to do this week but I'll try again next week.

Yes i do get the underwater vibe, with highs damped out, the toms and the nice guitar layers.

I can totally relate with the feeling of an idea, or a riff for instance that you listened or played so much that it does not trigger the excitement it had originally. I usually park them then for some time before uncovering it much later and hopefully fall in love with it again. Also riffs are so much about the feeling and the raw emotion of them that sometimes the first two takes may be messy but have this organic beauty that get lost in the clinical precision of take #348.

Sounds more Lydian than Locrian to me. Wonderfully atmospheric work. Love how hushed everything sounds. smile
