New multi-layered improvisation

Postby Ian Craig » Mon Feb 11, 2019 1:52 pm

Hi,

been doing this, it's a bit messy, but I like it, but it needs sorting out a lot more I think :)

They were improvised like the music so only contained a few clear phrases, the rest was a hideous out of tune mess, so I melodyned them into the closest near-by shapes. I think it works as a sort of sketch outline +++. The music was improvised over a load of 7/4 drum patterns in EZDrummer2 (5/4 patterns towards the end). So I have demonstrated to myself that it is possible to basically write using this instinctive recording method and restoration method. If I try to decipher some kind of usable story from the words I came out with, it sounds like some kind of vampire tale about getting back before dawn and missing people. That's enough for me to work with, which means I can write something along multiple lines of coherence, which should help melodic development that can be used even if I discard those specific word/story elements and totally re-write the words and only use specific parts of the musical developments underneath :D Thanks for listening j. :)

Oh yes, I forgot to mention, the Melodyne version plugin I'm using is the full studio version, so I have all the controls, note just basic pitch, but pitch modulation, pitch drift and any timing controls, amplitude controls for each blob, formant controls (which I didn't use) etc. and I seem to have become pretty adept at using them now, even though I barely used them for a good few months.
