Day 2: Out of the fog
Updated: Feb 23, 2021
After yesterday's storm, the piano and voice emerged from the fog, guided by the Moog pattern. From here, a new keyboard melody developed, which also worked as a nice counter-melody to the main vocal line.
(A couple listeners have compared this music to Gorecki's "Symphony No. 3" and Rachmaninoff's "Vocalise", and for that I'm very grateful. It's always so interesting to hear what others pick up from a piece of music.)
For today's session, I kept to my "simplicity" rule, using only 3 instruments at any given moment. This really allowed each part to have its own space, and the music has a lot of breathing room and a gentle flow.
Following a suggestion to be more "daring", I brought in a new bass sequence at the 4:28 mark. From here, I feel like this music is now taking us deep into a forest. This is where I will begin for tomorrow's session.
