Day 1: Other times, other places.
This is inspired by the first drawing I made for #theDaily in October. Every day, I'll make a new track after each drawing in chronological order (archived here: https://tokipona.lectronice.com/d/26-tenpo-suno-ale-pi-tenpo-mun-nanpa-luka-luka-2021)
My goal is to get a draft of the soundtrack for the cyberpunk-themed game I'm working on.
Day 8: The daily wonder.
This started as brutal techno, but the allmighty wub wub slowly turned it into, uh, something else. I'm starting to think I have more affinity towards more complex rhythms, since I seem to be unable to stick to a basic four on the floor, not to mention I keep microtiming pretty much everything. Playing the RAV Vast certainly has changed my approach to music, even on machines.
Day 9: Humility network.
Yes, I've found the distortion settings. And I could have set it much stronger, because the result was really interesting when paired with the compressor, but I thought this blurry mood was nice enough. This will likely lead to a plethora of other noisy experiments.
Day 10: Watch your back.
This is noisy as hell, and rather brutal. Some kind of gabber. It was fun at the beginning when I was in the zone, then it somehow totally emptied my mind.
It's strange how the dyonisiac, cathartic effect tends to vanish when you start to think about how to make it sound better. This genre is harder to make than it sounds, at least for me.
Day 13: Sharing is caring.
The Gui Boratto vibe is strong with this one. No idea how nor why it came up, but it somehow materialized after a blurry memory when I saw him playing live maybe ten years ago on a beach in Cannes, France.
I don't remember which song it is, nor from which album it belongs to (and I'm not sure I want to) but the melody reminds me of one of his tracks that I loved, and that I haven't listened to in many years.
Day 15: Failure is the default option.
This one took me ages to "finish". After numerous unsatisfying attempts, nothing is left of the idea I started with, except maybe the hypnotic vibe, which became more complex (and hopefully more interesting) than I had initially planned. There may be a faint hint of Dopplereffekt.
@oleksiy Thanks! Yes, this would certainly fit well, though I'd need to hone my production skills quite a bit before making something worthy of her voice :)
