Jū ni (十二) - Twelve

Lack of inspiration, but interested to experiment i tried the 12-tone challenge.  rearrange the 12 notes of the chromatic scale to form a riff.

And so i did, but divided the riff into 3 equal parts and began arranging a melody line and a bassline against it, disregarding any 12-tone limitation.

Oooo a 12 tone melody heart I find these so interesting too, ever since I saw that excellent Vihart video ono youtube. This one has a nice balance between the chromaticism and the harmony, and the production around it is tasty heart Nice one man!

i've been following the 12tone channel for a while, also Adam Neely is most excellent. There are quite a number of music theory channels out there. And Vihart is awesome, probably why the 12-tone idea was in the front of my brain smile

Fascinating.

Now that serialism is no longer the dominant mode of composition (at least in academic circles), it's fun to see it used in a less oppressive way. Very enjoyable.

Has a nice fun vibe to it and the story behind it is interesting.
