I captured this quickly. I’m experimenting with motion in the bass and piano at first. Then I try to bring some contrast into the chord progression. It’s not quite right, but I try it a few more times anyway. I hear a quiet vocal melody teasing the rhythm and motion of the piano and bass. […]
16 bars of sequenced groove. Fm7 sub synth bass line and an Apple loop (Club Dance Beat).
Very slow. 64 bpm. I’m moving around A minor. Natural minor scale (Aeolian). I like the vibe. Very dark but hopeful. Dualistic. Kinda sounds drunk.
I’m playing with C and F. Not finding anything on that first try for contrast.
And where there’s life. There will be hope to rise. ON MY FEET AGAIN. And with this hope. I’ll find the strength to rise. ON MY FEET AGAIN
You know when it’s time to MOVE ON. Acquaintance won’t hinder. MOVE ON. Clear my mind like a river
Now you’re GONE, GONE. No longer we. And you’re down on me. You’re down on me
The REASONS we’re not going away. It’s never really easy. We’re gonna make our way. Only if you want it, want it. Only if you want it
