This is a piece of sound design work that I did at make. Enjoy.
I produce a lot of my own music on Abelton. I don’t use sound loops or clips. what I produce is all done through software instruments and midi performance. That said, i have severe limitations as a keyboard player and I probably can’t play most of the stuff I write in this program. At the request of a couple of friends, I will start posting some of the music I produce on this blog.
So this is a song I made to be cinematic. I don’t have any particular scene in mind but I kind of imagined someone climbing. Its repetitive. But, I believe what it lacks in musical structure, it makes up for in mood and aesthetic.
I made walk cycle to mirror the process of character animation. Keys, Breakdowns, In betweens, Cleanup. I don’t know if i reached my goal, but having something specific in mind allowed me to think about my musical process differently.
