Disquiet Junto 0451 Ursula’s Silences

The Disquiet Junto this week asks how this line by Ursula K. Le Guin might be applied to a musical composition: “For a word to be spoken, there must be silence. Before, and after.”

I've incorporated silences into the track through including pauses before different sections.

To do this I built up the scaffold of the song by playing the drums along to this song I've been enjoying recently.

Then I settled on a handful of notes on the bass, which led me to decided they were part of a Phrygian mode.

Today I added a guitar part to fill out the song and attempted a melody.
