WeeklyBeats 2018 – Week 36, Quantized pt. III

This week and next I’m using to polish off the new album
Thought it would be a fun little ending to repeat the main theme again in that old game sound. For all the chiptune heads, especially on WB, you’ll be dissapointed to know there were no real consoles used in this tongue
V last minute addition, but I think it’s a cool note to end on.

I’ve found that this group of songs, from the last 12-15 weeks or so, have a large range from acoustic/live recorded blues to heavily computer-edited pieces, so I figured something v digital would be a nice ending.
Going to record some v short ‘skit’ tracks next week, basically just drum beats + banter to freshen the palette between songs.

Thanks for listening!

Week 18 – Quantized pt. II

Picks up where last week left off.
I like this whole song-fading-into-song thing, dunno how long I can keep it going for, but I’m enjoying working on a new album from left to right.

Thinking of coming back to this one with a friend who plays saxophone and record a couple of stabs in harmony + a wandering solo.

Repetition Repetition Repetition Repetition Repetition!

WeeklyBeats 2018 – Week 17, Quantized

Week 17 – Quantized

beginnings of a new larger-scale project
Thanks to Mel for the help w/ harmonies!

Noticing lots of other people around town going for a huge epic sound, spending lots of money in the studio to pull it off.

Trying that big production sound myself on a budget of 0 in an apartment.

Really cool old drum beat I have been wanting to use for a long time – essentially a half-time shuffle with the accent halved again. A quarter-time shuffle I guess. (Whole-time shuffle?)

An Opeth-style outro section. (Just quietly possibly my favourite guitar lead I’ve ever made) – also attempting to fade this track into next week’s.

You don’t know why
But you’ve got nothing at all
You think you’re flying
But you’re in free fall

I heard you got a new song on the radio –
You’re getting played almost every day, I don’t know how it goes.
You’re in tune and on time
Quantized – and holding on the market line.

Yeah it’s good
But I can’t feel it.
