I worked on a few different ideas this week but, for some reason, they did not seem to find their place. I ended up starting from scratch and going for a speedtrash. It's a short silly track with real bass and guitar for a change, and a lot of samples from Splice. I hesitated adding a sheep sample as well and it finally did not make it into the track. I keep it for the time I'll do a scottish disco track with bagpipe and sheeps.
Alright, I'll try harder next week.
Here's a speedtrash. This started as a slightly funky track with bass and drums and then took a weird turn at a dimly lit crossroad into industrial/electro territory.
The core is around the bass, with only one take per riff, which explains the mistakes, the creatively inaccurate rhythm and just general amateurish sound.
I could use the excuse that I started a new job, was busy, was thinking of something else. But the truth is that I'm just lazy. Alright, will do better next time.
I also realized my numbering in my filenames is off by a week. Oh well.
This track actually started as a jig with a piano and violins. I was stuck in the process and started playing with variations of instruments, vibes. A few iterations later I ended up with this glitchy breakbeat dark cyberpunk industrial track, closer to Atari Teenage Riot than to Irish music. It also reminds me a little of the great glitch tracks that TQI would make for weekly beats 2020 (check him out there, he's just so good: https://weeklybeats.com/tqi )
I kept it rather short and noisy but I think it's appropriate for this track!
Done in FL Studio with lots of samples from Splice and some FLEX synths.
This week I went for a mash up of Animal Planet and Zombie movies. The concept started with "What if David Attenborough narrated a documentary about zombies?". I listened to quite a lot of zombie games soundtracks (Undead Redemption) and western music.
For the voice of David Attenborough, I used vo.codes, which uses an AI to deepfake celebrities reading a script. There are quite a lot of samples also in this track, wind, crows, zombies. They all come from Splice.
This is a silly track but I had a lot of fun making it!
