Track Description : Cosmic Strings
My Creative Vision: I though about composing music for space adventures without using synths. The feeling you evoque is more important than the instruments you use.
I faced this challenge as an opportunity to learn about many different things:
- Construction of an Strings template for REASON, creating layered instruments.
- Use of articulations.
- Control of the volumes, expression and emotion.
- Practice with the atonal system for the chords progression to obtain a fantasy feeling.
- Mix and mastering of orchestral strings.
All those were the things i’ve been looking after, in this creation.
Composition Overview :
To put into practice the atonal system, I have created a “notes table” to easily move through the chords. Following some rules you keep inside the atonal progression.
The structure is something like AABC. The sound in general tries to be quite surrounding. It begins from soft to strong adding intensity in the AA part. In B a main melody starts and evolves with second voices bringing spicatto arpeggios. The C part is like an echo with increasing harmony complexity.
An extraterrestrial song, after all.
Main Sounds :
Strings (basses, chellos, violas, violins) from Spitfire BBCSO and LABS
Layered with the strings inside Reason NN-XT sampler.
I hope you enjoy it.
