at night it feels cold

The last track was almost entirely bass, drums, and harsh sounds. This one has hardly any of those. It’s almost…pretty. And though the composition is sloppy, it has the best sounding strings I’ve ever had a hand in.

Really I was just trying to test my keyboard over lunch break (I rearranged a bunch of USB wires) and this sorta happened. I was trying to figure out how to do a Gapper effect in Reason, which I was more or less successful at. Well, you be the judge.

It’s actually pretty good, though again in the > 2:00 club. This is one of the only songs I’ve ever done where I’ve done all the drum stuff myself, and I don’t totally hate the song. It’s actually got a sort of smooth beat to it. Yay me.

Too bad I got a little nutsy with the nine inch nailsy sounds. Must be all the Prodigy I’m listening to.

Oh, and if any of you have actually decided to listen to this, do so on a system with some bass. You’ll be glad you did.

It’s not very good. I was messing around with some plucked guitar string samples and got sort of carried away. It’s very caustic, not very well composed, and simply put, not as good as the last thing I put up, which I like a lot better in almost every way. Plus, the main thing I was trying to do, which is replicate an effect I’d heard, I managed to do, but I only use it for like 3 seconds at the very end of the song.But I suppose it was a learning experience.
