Liner Notes: 

FB Songskirmish #169

host Theo Kater
prompt diamond

At the hour and a half mark (that's one hour livin' out in the woods time), I had a melodic theme, a separate rhythm for the bass, a simple chord progression all against a basic house beat. That version is here: http://files.fawmers.org/5090_2019/jwhanberry/jwhanberry_pulled%20from%20dust_sketch-190723.mp3

The quote for the melodic rhythm and the title is "Your Rebel soul shines lika a diamond Pulled From Dust" by Jay Long. The definition of diamond (3 syllables) is "Native crystalline carbon" (7 syllables). The bass rhythm is a 3:7 interference pattern. That also gives me rhythmic bits for other stuff. Then it was time for dinner.

To extend the idea I deconstructed all the components and spread them out along with a few ornaments.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Nice layering. Like the low notes, audacious panning and all the counterpoint.

Interesting timings...again using words as the basis for melodic rhythm. Unfortunately, I never put effort into learning notation and what I did know has been forgotten...but I do get the explanation you gave me on my board.
Quite cool method.
It all comes together in my opinion and makes for a unique piece that maintains interest. The sound choices themselves also keep me interested; what will I hear next?? That sound at :57 made me smile.
Nice breaks with that bass groove becoming a focal point.
Yeah...this ALL works for me. Great vamp.
