Skirmish - ss071120k - Truth
[@coolparidiso]'s skirmish prompt:
"THEME/PROMPT: The THE TRUTH no hiding the truth the truth will out tell me the truth whatever to do with truth"
Oyyy...my skirmishing hasn't gotten off to a good start - 50 something minutes over with this one.
I thought I was looking good when I glanced at my timer and saw 3 minutes left...then I realize I had no kind of structure.
Most of my time was spent arranging.
Took about 5 minutes to search out some vocal samples with the word "truth" in it. I knew I wanted some kind of preacher.
Found some and just started chopping and manipulating.
That took some time so I decided on very very simple drums and yet another dancey track. I feel like I take the easy way out by doing dance tracks for skirmishes because they require less effort with drums.
Anyway, I kept messing with layers and had something kinda ok, but that's when I realized i just a 16 bar loop and not a song.
Had to arrange, and that required more layers and elements. The whole time I wasn't really liking what I was hearing.
But...I had come so far, so I wasn't gonna just scrap the whole thing and call it quits.
Eh, it is what it is. Should NOT have taken me almost 2 hours to do this, though. That is disappointing.
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
