This week I worked on using simple sounds collectively to string together one track. The idea this week is that I don’t overthink the synthesis side of the song; the part where I create the main synths and decide how much time I’ll put into making them complex or simple.
This is an important part in the track because you can either create a song with a lot of complex sounds and ideas (like this), or you could create a song surrounded around one idea (like this), be it the use of a certain progression or instrument. This is another important part of music to explore because you sometimes need to take away some complex elements of a track to create a more fluid experience or vice-versa if you want to make a crazy journey for the listener. You can listen to my attempt at simplicity here.
