Day 9: Time for a vote

Updated: Feb 23, 2021



Many of my listeners are also musicians themselves. When I sent out the invitations to take part in this challenge, someone offered to send me actual music to work with. This was such a welcome surprise, since I don't often get the chance to collaborate with other artists.


Today, having no clear sense of where to go next, I took them up on their offer and started working with some beautiful textures that were emailed to me. The result was this somewhat sad and dark interlude.



I'm left slightly perplexed by this. On the one hand, this track is quite beautiful and emotional. On the other hand, it sounds very cliché and predictable, which is something I promised to avoid.


My big question (which I ask for your help in answering) is "Is this something worth exploring further?" Or should I take a detour now and move on to something else tomorrow?


Please cast your vote in the comments below. Thanks!

It's okay. If it were a track among others, I would likely listen to it less only because I would have the previous track on repeat.

いいね!

I loved it! Soothing to mind and spirit. Predictability is good. I don’t want to scramble my brain with new twists and turns. Explore further.

I am not bothered by predictable (I would instead say "unsurprising") music when beauty and emotion are part of the package. I would, if I were making it, slow this to half the tempo, have a middle section with just the electronics, then have the piano return but with somewhat different harmonies and/or more reverb. But I am not you, and vice versa...

いいね!

Yes it is, I vote. I love the formality and Structure at this point in the piece.....

Day 09 Mix 2 comes across to me as very sorrowful. And Day 09 Mix 2 did not grab my attention so much. I don’t think this meshes well with Day 08 Mix 5 and Day Four Mix B1. So I would vote to “not to explore further”.
