A cover and remake in its original key and tempo:
G minor
106 bpm

For people that always thought the original ended too quickly:
This project started out as a learning tool. I wanted to figure out why I liked “Son of Flynn” so much by recreating it to the best of my ability using my own sounds. But then I thought, “why just do a cover?” If I wanted to listen to this, I probably would go back to the original, and that is when I decided to do something a little different.

I wanted to learn how the sounds are structured, and perhaps to find something interesting in the theory behind it. I still don’t know why I enjoyed it so much upon my first listening of it back in 2010. The first two chords, G minor to a D minor chord in its first inversion, isn’t really that significant. But the energetic arpeggios and pad synth/strings must be the big reason why. Compositionally this is simple, but the emphasis is in the layering.
By the way, and as I digress, layers make everything better such as in photography, music, clothes, and cakes…
For the first arpeggio section I have 5 Different synths and the bass has 4.

For the slight remix, I didn’t want to add too much right away, because the beauty of the original is in its simplicity and its gradual addition of instruments. The goal is to have it where if you listen to this enough times that you can’t hear the original the same way. At least that is what happened to me now since I’ve worked through it. On second thought, for your sake you probably shouldn’t risk it, and you should stop listening to this now if you haven’t done so already.
The problem with dissecting any piece in this manner, you become a bit too familiar and lose its alluring mystery. I think I’m married to this piece in a way.

I love Tron!! The first one is notably one of my favorite movies of all time. The title to this is what lead me to discovering this wonderful, wonderful cinematic.

The strings along with the electronic arps, wow. It's so enjoyable to listen to. I'm so impressed by what you did here. Now I am curious to see what your other tracks sound like.


Phonometrologist responds:

Thank you for the kind words. I'm shamefully haven't seen the first one, but I've been meaning to for quite a while now. Glad you stumbled upon this one.

Five Stars! This piece is a very good cover and I think it is your best mix yet. The bass sound you got is just spot on. I love how it builds and decays with the strings. The Arp is great as well, really good sound, I love how things are added and taken away from the arp sound to create interest. Everything fits together very nicely.


Phonometrologist responds:

Well thank you mate! If this is my best mix yet, then I'm looking to spend lots of time investing in pieces for me to achieve similar results...kind of frightening because it took me forever to be happy with it.

This track has made me so very glad I upgraded my headphones recently. :-) The mix feels just right to me, and I loved the dynamics on the percussion.


Phonometrologist responds:

Well thank you kind sir! I hope you may continue supplementing your newly upgraded headphones on a dose of Tron.

For my sake I should stop listening to this right now? I wholeheartedly disagree! This was an absolute joy to listen to. I agree with your statement about layers, they do make many things better. Must listen again.


Phonometrologist responds:

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I almost thought I ruined the integrity of the original hence that comment. Man you're on a spree here. Glad you're back!
