How do you often start a song? Do you use the method of getting a 8 bar loop going with everything that will be in the song in it and than duplicate that out and then arrange the song by subtraction?
That's my most common method, although I'll generally use a 32 or 64 bar loop. 8 bars is too repetitive for my taste.
Recently I experimented with starting at the beginning and working my way through each section sequentially. Harwell Dekatron was done like that. I like the difference. The track I'm currently working on is being made like that.
I'm currently stuck at 3:30 but I just sampled my neighbour's leaf-blower through the fence without him knowing and I think that maybe the basis for the next section.
Do you have any crazy christmas/festive/wintermas traditions you'd like to share?
I've got hooked on crunchie nut cornflakes with baileys instead of milk on christmas morning (thanks to russell howard for that)
Will you be touring with the All Seeing I again in the future? Can you all come to Portland OR pretty please? It was awesome seeing you here a couple months back. Everyone loved youOtt responded on 02/12/2018
