Hunter has written a bit of new music for harp, celesta, upright bass, strings, and guitar.
I’ve just recorded a bit of music for harp, celesta, upright bass, strings, and electric guitar, which is my main instrument. The rest I used a MIDI controller for, because I don’t own the other instruments, and I’ve never played them before.
Take a listen, see what you think.
So that’s the seed of an idea.
To develop that into a full-length song, I’ll probably use it as a head, create a chord progression from it, and then improvise. I’ll sing over the chords and play solos just to see what I can come up with.
I’ll also try writing some contrasting sections in different modes. A section in F Lydian could be really pretty.
I intended to write the piece in E Phrygian, but it really just ended up in E minor, partly because I just didn’t end up using the flat 2—in this case, F—that gives Phrygian its slightly threatening sound.
I wrote it in 5/4 time at first, but ended up adapting it to 3/4 because I liked the stroke, glide-glide, stroke pattern better.
That’s all I’ve got. See ya.
