Pianiarta

Filed under: Composition,drums & bass,piano,strings — steve @ 9:09 pm

After JamStix kept on stuffing up and hogging the RAM I was finally able to record this draft piano piece (after successive re-starts and turning off start-up items) without excessive ASIO glitches popping throughout the composition – damn, Jamstix is a pain at times… Can’t wait for Cubase 5 with its multi-processor support… Might even buy a 3 gHz Quad processor as well…

Piano, Bass and Strings from Independence, drums by JamStix…

UPDATE [19-06]: Added string section from Independence – damn JamStix was a real pain in the butt this morning…

  1. Hmm. Interesting time signature. Sounds like you got some sidechain compression going there, no? Something very 60s about this – as is usually your style methinks. Or 70s feature film. Feels like it needs a reprieve at some point. maybe another instrument solo. A flute might be nice – crawling to heights nearing the climax. Random / seemingly random notes. I’ve finished all me marking and will be at the edit rooms on Money Street tomorrow should you wish for a tea break.

  2. It’s all just 4/4 – just syncopated rhythms – no side-chain compression. Yeah, it needs more stuff and a break from the drive of the triplets and such – was thinking of some subtle strings as I was playing it while a Fench movie was on TV and I heard the strings from the movie overlayed with the track. I did initially think of flute too, but I want something a little more forceful I think. No doubt my influences are 60/70′s!! When I think of a feature film I think of the credits, hence longish, drawn-out pieces… Certainly needs tweaking, layering and polishing – just wanted to post it up while I was able to grab an initial recording.
