30 days, 30 tunes - Day 4: Fake Vader Dub + Day 3: Grainbrain

May 5th, 2009

Another unfinished track, but damn so good. Yeah, I’m pleased with how this came out. Pretty massive. This is a dubby tune loosely based on the Imperial March main melody. (Yes, one note is wrong, and that’s the way I want it. It’s not meant to be a cover of the march.)

For day 3 I posted the first part of what will become my 72h challenge submission. It’s some crazy glitchy break cutting/granular synthesis using only the Gameboy’s wave channel in LSDj’s kit mode.

This post is part of the 30 songs in 30 days challenge.
“The idea of it is that in a timeframe of 30 days you are to write 30 songs. These songs can be a 10 second long melody and bassline or an epic, melodic 15 minute long piece. There is little chance of actually completing 30 masterpieces, but that isn’t the point. The point is to push your boundaries of what you would normally do.”

    I still think the brilliance of this ditty is being wasted by ripping off John Williams. The bass “formant” slurs are too good to be just part of a Star Wars wannabe tune. But that could be just my lack of interest for all things Star Wars related :)
