Despite how epic the song is and how fitting the title is, my wife came up with it because she joked that what I really wanted to do today was play Divinity: Original Sin 2.

15:05 - 17:20: I am taking guitar lessons. Today's lessons is to do scales more smoothly across two octaves. While listeners might not really hear differences, behind the scenes I'll be working on playing on scale tones more dexteriously.

I also watched a pretty good 4 and a half video about making thicker, more epic chords.

This is a little more soulful and epic than the music I normally do?

I'm going to experiment with weird sounds this week and then work on some EDM-style production. How does that work together? We'll see!

A dark industrial progressive track - a lot of resonance. The talky-instrument is the Phenol, which highlights to me the fact that modular is a ton of fun. After listening to headphones though I realize the panning is WAY off. I think it's because I ran a channel through another synth band didn't set up my software mixing right...

I wasn't really into this track this week. It actually came together considering that I was really not happy with it about two hours in, but still… meh.

What kind of genre would you call this?

Sunday, May 21, 15:45 - 18:00. Today is a painting day.

More arpeggiation. More ambience. Lots of modulation in hardware. Some beats.

So far, I have an EDM dance beat going on but I'm not really feeling it today. I may have to do more random noodling.
