Day 8: A dramatic vista
Updated: Feb 23, 2021
Getting back into the music that I started on Day 5, the first order of business was finding the right sonic environment. This took the whole morning: rhythm programming, sound design, and sequencing. By lunchtime, I had a very strong bed going, and went outside for a walk in Central Park. The North Meadow is covered in snow today, which looks quite dramatic.
With this view still lingering in my mind, I came back to the studio and began building the piano part. This ended up being very challenging, and I recorded 5 takes before finding an approach with enough breath and space.
How does this music feel to you? Any images or emotions conjured up by it? (Please comment below).
