Minimal Tech/Housey Trance
Ok so I need to explain this song, because this is probably my first attempt at actually being deep with music.
The main idea I had for this song and what I was aiming for was a subject like "Don't tell me the truth because I'm happy living lies' and generally living in a dream world which one is happy living in rather than facing a harsh reality.
The main lead is actually a midi instrument, I had no better electric piano emulations in my inventory at the time and it sounded pretty good for a midi instrument. This was supposed to be reminiscent of sleep and dreams, it has a kind of lullaby sound to it and hence gives the song the dreamy feel I wanted.
The song starts off with an electronic sounding and stiff/rigid beat to it (in the full mix), everything is very technically timed, such as the kick and snare lasting exactly two beats and the bass never overlapping anything (also, the bass is just a slightly distorted minimal kick), this helps with the mix and gives the song the reality shades in the start and the end where the beat is the main focus. It's supposed to represent the time of being awake, organised and obediant to doing things.
There are deep sub moments in the breakdowns, I tried to implement what film scores did with bass in atmospheric moments to create the deep and more physical experiance with the listener, but I'm guessing no one listening to this will be hearing it on a good enough system to get the full effect, like from the cinema.
The wind an orgasm/moaning sounds in the background give the effect of getting out of that strict and flat environment that the beat and the dulled pads give and gives a more free and nightly feel to emphasise the dream aspect.
The composition of the chords and melody is actually very inspired by some of the tracks in the Final Fantasy X game by Squaresoft, specifically the 'This is your story' track from when the main character enters a new world, or a dream world.
Yeah so I just wrote an essay on why I did things. FUCK SHIT N****RS.
