Endless Blue

Trip-Hop from West Bend, WI, USA

Moving on down the line

Posted on Mar 5, 2009

did just release an album after all, no need to dive directly back into writing…

…and with that said, I did exactly the opposite and expanded on two new tracks last night. Both were ideas I had while finishing up Fever Dreams, just a couple of chords and a beat, maybe a bass line… And I really didn’t expand on them much. I feel a certain minimalism starting to creep into my writing, almost as if I would rather use a single instrument and pick the “right” notes rather than layer as much (which has always been my mainstay). We’ll see where it goes.

Speaking of single instruments, I find myself addicted to my latest purchase, the GForce Virtual String Machine. Sampled from the real deals, it’s a Solina/Eminent/Crumar emulator VST. It has a lovely ooey-gooey sound yet is pretty simple and straightforward to program. Expect to see it a lot in my future tracks… 🙂

Better get to work. Maybe I’ll write about the Chicago experience tomorrow.]]>
