'Cinematique' - New Original Music - A Quick 5 Minute Timed Writing Challenge - Electronic/Instrumental + Walkthrough
I figured I'd take a little break from
'Lens' song idea from the last few days, and do a quick little timed challenge and see if I could maybe make something worth exploring after I finish 'Lens', or at least spend some time with the new Spitfire instruments. This definitely isn't a finished song, and I think maybe needs some replacement instruments, or more layers, but I like the general idea. I started with Track 1, which is the noisey, almost horror sounding synth sound, which just plays 3 D's, 3 octaves apart over each 2 bar section, using one of the sounds in the 'Alex Lenz' instrument pack. Track 2 was recorded from another of those instruments in that pack, and was just a single D that was held out over the course of 36 bars or so. This sound begins as a drone, though other notes sort of fade in and out, and the sound itself morphs as you hold it out. I recorded it into audio just so there wouldn't be any variation with each repetition, and I could easily copy and paste it, since I was on the clock.
Track 4, 'Intimate Strings'
For Track 3, I used the 'Intimate Strings' pack, the other
of the two new sets, and is one of the 'Long' settings, essentially just legato notes. This plays 4 notes, which sort of act as root notes, altering the chords that are built from the two tracks above it, though they take up 3 bars each, which creates a sort of super slow, hidden polymeter between Tracks 1 and 3. It descends from a D to a B, then a Bb, and down to G, before repeating. Finally we have Track 4, which uses the 'Short Col Legno' setting, giving it a staccato, sort of percussive feeling. I think this one may be replaced, but in my head, I was envisioning a sort of creepy, horror sort of sound, though it's a bit harmonically straight-forward, so I'll try a few different things and see if they work better.
