A bit early now, aren’t we?
Yes, yes we are!
Yeah, I wanted to do the update, before heading out the Christmas land, removing the cape of Arki.
So, here’s something that’s relatively suitable for the season: ORGAN WERK OPUS 525 IN C MINOR. No further explanation in needed.
Regarding the headline of this post, yes, I was thinking that tomorrow’s the big day, as well as the Tim Burton movie, but also the song: “The Night Before” is an early Beatles song, from the “Help” album and the movie. Great song and great guitar solo! I’m going to listen it right away.
Happy holidays everyone! See you next year.
The name of the game is EVERPOP. (A little joke there)
At first – just a second ago – I wrote the title on the tune with two o’s… And it made me much more amused than it really should…
Anyway, the tune is fun. It’s vintage alright, and I tried to make it sound as organic as possible. It has basically two parts that keep on repeating, with some variation on instrumentation.
Of the two parts, the theme 1 is definitely more dominant.
Also (overly) enthusiastic drum stuff! That is good.
Major is happy and minor is sad. Right? (Major and minor in music, that is)
No. It’s all in the context of the music and listeners brain.
You can fill a song with bright major chords and clear melodies, but if the tune’s beat is sticky and overall feel dark, and you spice the whole thing up with lyrics about loss & desperation, you get something that really isn’t happy at all.
The folk music of Balkan – on the other hand – is filled with minor chords and melancholia, but the rhythm in that music is very often so lively, that sadness is the last thing on your mind. (I’m counting out the lyrics here, because I only speak ‘n read Canadian & Cimmerian)
DUMMY IN THE HEAT features a lot of diminished chords & intervals, which are like double minors – two minor thirds on top of another. And the tune’s mood is hardly a sad one.
All in the context, man.
And your brain.
Let me presente ye, le canticle christmas – se: LA DI LA LAND.
It’s definitely something, I like to call “8-bit orchestral”. I quite recently got a new piece of software containing that kind of sounds, and making the tune was a perfect way to really get to know it’s secrets.
There’s bells and cling-clong and elves and magic in the air and stuff. (“The stuff” being 8-bit strings and flutes and bassoons and harps and whatnot)
Merry december folks!
