Subspace Melody

By xavoneir on March 11, 2018 8:01 pm

This week I did the same thing as week 8, wherein I took about 30 minutes to try to make the strangest sound possible and then build a song around that. Instead of going for odd high frequency sounds, I went for a low frequency one this time, then backed it up with chords and a few other things. From a world-building perspective, I imagine it playing as one crosses through a gate out of a subspace and into a larger reality.

I enjoy how the mood gradually emerges from the melody, seeking resolution to the end, and then the final stabs interrupt and do the same thing, leaving the unformed impression of a conceptually larger space. I'd love to see how the next tune proceeds from this!

great mood, and i love reading the backstory of your tracks. it's like a modern version of reading the pamphlets that came with CDs :~)

Quote test! That was the idea I had while composing it precisely, yep.

Thanks! The backstory is one of my favorite parts of making these tracks :>

Seriously though, thanks to both of you two fellow mervs. You leave such kind words on my tracks and it is probably the sole reason I've kept up the pace and submitted one every week so far. Let's all keep it up and make some great stuff! I'll be sure to leave words of my own on your tracks as well.
