Disquiet Junto 0400 Sub Divided

The Junto this week proposes creating a score for a story by Malka Older using the author's voice.

I've done something a bit different and used drums and bass to accompany Malka's reading of The Divided.

The riff came to me as soon as I started listening to the piece, a jagged rhythm.

It's not a beat I can think of having played before, yet it was all I heard to accompany her description of walls rising in the landscape.

I listened to her reading and recorded the drums, then added the bass.

I experimented with adding Malka's voice in loops and also stretched some vowels to put in Iris as a synth, but it just seemed too muddy.
