Peacetime Through the Window of the Starship
So what I usually do is start on the next song as the one I just finished is uploading to Soundcloud, and I was just sitting with my hand on the midi controller with the first sound you hear pulled up in my DAW.
Those moments between uploads and creation are...special.
I realize that's a time where I'm kinda just drifting and peaceful. The sound itself I had pulled up made me think of space.
Went with that.
Wanted to keep everything atmospheric and chill, but perhaps make one sway. Chose more sounds that made me think of the cosmos.
Started the drums with just a kick and snare, then decided to give a little more variation than that so added sound after sound to the drums until I got a rhythm that I liked, and one that wasn't too busy or took away from the vibe of the pads/synths.
Freestyle soloing as always in there.
I can see some young space cadet looking out at whatever star system their ship was passing through. Its a time of peace. And the cadet is content.
All is well.
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
