'Creep Test Omega' - New Original Music/10 Minute Songwriting Challenge! Electronic/Instrumental + Walkthrough!

in dsound •  11 days ago  (edited)


So this was a little creation

from last night. I gave myself 10 minutes to try and come up with something, so I had to rush through adding tracks. I wanted to go for a noisey/ambient/droney sorta vibe, which made things easy, no harmonies or melodies to write, although the drums were a last minute addition. I'll go through the tracks really quick, though this will be a bit of a short walkthrough as most of the tracks are single notes, mostly just based on their timbre/effect. Also, this is my second DSound upload ever!

Listen to Creep Test Omega here.

All of the tracks in

the main group provide the backdrop of noisey/droney weirdness, except for Track 13, which was a super last minute addition that wound up being pretty cool. I basically just went through the "ambient and evolving" sets under each Ableton instrument (operator, sampler, etc) and tried to add things weren't particularly grimey/distorted. I think mostly they worked out, though if I had more time, I probably would've worked on blending them a bit, and have them come in and out of the sort of 'wall of sound'.

Track 13, the final addition, at the 9 minute mark.

I hope you've enjoyed this little tune, kinda short and random, but I like doing these timed challenges. It's a bit nerve-wracking, but its good practice, especially for Ableton "work-flow" techniques.

I like the idea of quick challenges! I think I’ll try someday. But in logic, I tested ableton lots of years ago and I didn’t get how to use it well.

It's a lot of fun! It sorta forces you to just create something and roll with it, rather than constantly editing and trying to perfect things. Good exercise in general.

I haven't used Logic much, except at my friend's place a few times, but its definitely a slick application. Ableton has a bit of a learning curve for sure, and is definitely different from Logic, but it's pretty easy when you get the hang of it.
