Yesterday, my brother lvl texted me to tell me to check out a new soft synth. He had already bought it and loves it and I wanted to find some time at the end of the night to mess with it for at least a few minutes. I kinda know myself a little bit, and when I first tweak on a new piece of gear I usually end up creating something with it if that particular piece of gear is inspiring. So I decided that I would wait til the end of the night (when I would normally attempt that fabled Utopia called "sleep") and install and play around with this soft synth. I also decided I would create a piece of music for you guys with the first sound I found that I was inspired by. I knew I wouldn't be writing the next "Bohemian Rhapsody" but that was the idea - short, simple and something some of you might find some use for. ( I suggest using it to travel to that fabled Utopia called "sleep".)
I found and tweaked out an atmospheric patch I liked, recorded a performance in one shot and that was the extent of the creative process. Then I sweetened the sound up a bit to make it a little more atmospheric than it already was, scratched my butt and then decided I needed a light beat. Sifting through my loops, I found one I hadn't listened to in awhile. It was the loop I created for my live show a few years ago. ( If you're not following me on Twitter, you're missing out on some recent posts we've been making back and forth about potential Celldweller touring. GO FOLLOW - OBEY! ) Back then, I wanted a light and filtery loop for my version of "Under My Feet" for my live show, and now you can hear it even if you haven't seen me play live. That little light and filtery loop you're hearing in this Beta Cessions track (Distants) is the actual untouched loop I made for "Under My Feet" live. Wow, trivia central. Don't you wish you could be on "Who wants to be a millionare" and they asked you this question? You'd nail it.
Speaking of "nailing it" I need to go nail out some food and then nail out more "Louder Than Words" editing and programming today. So I'm out - nailing it. If you guys dig these random "Beta Cessions" tracks, then I'll keep throwing them at you. (Tweet me) If not, I'll just write them and loop them for Stutter the studio cat to listen to all.... day..... long.......
