August Composition Challenge - GET WRITING

Recommended Posts

I have mine almost done now. I just need to have a few more listens to check the mix on various speakers and I should be done.

If I can't get something in this month, I'll definitely get one in next time round. Had an unexpected hiatus but look forward to listening to the compositions of the last couple of months.

I went for what I think is quite an appropriate feel to match this month's pic. I approached it by thinking of a middle-eastern feel, which immediately made me think of The Fifth Element. I never got my Doom array into this one (aww shucks you all cry!) but I think the Epic Tech kit from Damage gave it a little bit of the feeling from the Diva Dance from the film. Feyron's Flute (a freebie instrument from here - http://vstbuzz.com/freebies/feroyns-flute/) provides the melody. Synths are from Massive mostly and vocals from Ethera 2 and Ethera Soundscapes. The calabash and djembe percussion instruments come from West Africa from Komplete.

I normally try and do 'appropriate' but I think I will be way wide of that mark this time , mine is taking shape but , well just ....but , even I think the lyrics are a bit cheesy on this one :lol:

Time for new spectacles..? I use each month's Challenge picture as screen 'wallpaper'; this allows me to cogitate on the theme whenever I turn the PC on (which is often...). This morning (and for the second time..!), I tried to get rid of the fly that had landed on the screen, only to realise that it was not a fly, nor speck of dust, but a lone traveller crossing the scene on his camel..! D'oh..!

Good try Dad, but I think you'll find that actually, he's a Giza who has a specific part to play in the scene, and my story will tell exactly what he is doing there, granted your heads will drop as you realise this involves a vocal , however, to add some cheese , they are properly lurksalotesque in both content and delivery.

still trying to get Lurksalittle to add some tone to the BV's , but she is a touch wary of compromising any prospective university applications by association with my work , bummer!

Maybe I'm just a bit afraid of the learning curve on my new DAW?
I'm sure Blue Oyster Cult would have some sage advice on the matter... ;)

:D. The bands drummer has got the collective cowbell , and takes great pride in throwing random sequences through a different number each gig , though it had got a bit tired of late , it used to crack us all up

Ours gets a regular six hits for the intro to 'Killing In The Name Of', and that's all. It used to serve for parts of 'Walk This Way', but that's no longer in the repertoire. :(

Submitting as an also-ran

I've been away from this site, among others, for a while. It's two years since I took part in the composition challenge. I'm happy to see it's still going strong but I. AM. RUSTY.
I've named my track Senusret because if you've seen the pyramid of Senusret I, it's a good indicator of my attempt at building a pyramid here.

My tracks always seem to come out so quiet. I really need to do some research on compression/limiting or something.
If I set the waveform to [i]just [/i]below the point where it's clipping, it comes out quiet. Very frustrating.

So this track is of no use to anybody listening on laptop speakers.
