When the violin solo is so damn lit

naviarhaiku404 – A red sun

The haiku shared by Naviar Records this week prompted me to make a short meandering bassline.

When I went to Archive.org to find a video to go with it, I found a trailer to an unlikely western.

So I took that video into Ableton Live and rejigged my bassline to go with the little bit of soundtrack it contained, then ramped up the vibe a bit. 

Triggered

Feel somewhat attacked by this meme, since I also made a three-hour ambient album.

In my defence it was back in 2010.

Sometimes I think about revisiting it to see if I can do a better job of mastering the recording, which became irritating with compression.


Disquiet Junto 0509 The Long Detail

The Disquiet Junto project this week is to "Create a piece of music with moments from a preexisting track." 

I've selected a couple of moments from my Naviar Haiku track last week, then arranged those loops into a verse/chorus/verse/chorus kind of song.

To make it a little more interesting, I've also looped a couple of moments from the MIDI guitar part and used these to drive a toy piano (that windchime-like sound) and a Mellotron (sorta like a string quartet, I think).

The result simplifies a busy but meandering track, although both songs seem like they're a soundtrack waiting for activity to accompany.

This piece feels like it could use a bass part but I guess it will do for now.
