Studio Diary – 2016-12-19

modular01It’s been a while since I posted one of these, but that’s not becase I’ve been inactive. Quite the contrary, actually.  I’ve been deep in writing what I *think* is goig to be the title track for the new album.  What that title is, I’ll just hold onto for now.  It’s survived the two week test, being a name I’ve been playing with in my head for some time.

The song started as an idea.  Some words written on the train and some sounds swimming in my head.   It’s going to be built around a sound I created on the DSI Pro 2 that shows a different side of that instrument than I normally see.   It’s a softer, gentler, burbling sound that makes for an excellent back drop.  I am countering it’s softness with a wave sequence off of the Kronos.   The more I work with the Kronos, the more I realize it’s an instrument I have been waiting my whole life to own.  It’s absolutly fantastic.

There is a pad melody thats swiming in my head, too.   This is coming off the V-Synth GT and/or the Virus TI.  I haven’t made up my mind yet.

I haven’t made my choice of readers for the spoken word portion of the song that I wrote on the train.  In my head, I heard Neil Degrasse Tyson reading it…but good luck with that.  The more I think, though, the more I want to go into a more gentle and sad direction.

So…right.  Back to it.  I’m looking forward to my vacation next week to really dig in and finish this one.
