Day 1: The storm has arrived

Updated: Feb 19, 2021



And so it begins.


There were a couple suggestions to explore the human voice, and another one urging me to stay away from anything "safe or soothing". With those ideas, I sat down in my studio and started working with organic vocal sounds. I wanted to create something gritty, dusty, and unclear. Once those textures began coming together, I started building the track, eventually adding a simple piano line (which had also been suggested).


The goal for today was to creating an "opening", like the first shot of a film. An establishing shot. And then, out of the mist, the very beginnings of something fuzzy and analog. This is where the Moog Grandmother came into the mix.


After about 6 hours of careful sculpting of the sound, I'm satisfied with the first 2:45 of this track, and excited to hear where it goes over the next 2 minutes. That's where tomorrow's session will pick up.

Oh, let me add I agree "It truly feels like an approaching storm", and I am in anticipation of where you go next....

The very first measures reminded me of Gorecki's Third Symphony, I believe it is titled "Symphony of Sorrowful Songs", one of my favorite classical pieces. That is meant as a very positive feeling for me. I thought the piano line at the end went on too long and was not daring enough. Just my thoughts. I am in awe of your creativity.

It truly feels like an approaching storm but still somewhat peaceful.

It reminds me of sirens (as in mermaids) singing in the fog in the deep of night and of delving into the subconscious in each of us.
