I walked outside this morning and was struck by the light coming through the trees and thought “Morning Light would be a clever name for a tune.” It was cold, too, so I went back inside.
I’ve been experimenting with session templates inside of Logic recently, so this piece has a similar vibe as a tune I did a few weeks back called Almost There. It’s pretty much the same instrumentation, though this tune is in 7/4. I also tried doing a bit less quantizing on the acoustic drums track, to make is sound a bit more realistic….short of getting a real drummer playing real drums.
In sifting through some older material I rediscovered a project from back in May. A friend had asked me to create a piece of music for a video game he was developing, so I turned this around in rather short order. Though nothing has yet materialized from his game project (which has working title), I thought it best to leave the title of this tune as still “untitled.”
I also discovered that I’d apparently just purchased a full version of NI Reaktor shortly before creating this tune, as there are several Reaktor plugins on this track.
Musings about keyboards, synthesizers, and music in general.
