Circuit Bored - Duel Personality

Share Download this song

Author Comments

Duel Personality is a song that is all guitar (with the exception of the intro little synth, and the rattle snake (which is actually a maraca). I took a slightly detuned guitar, and made a western chord progression. Then I copied it and dropped it down an octave, and another copy and dropped that down and once more for a full bass sound. Then I played some classical guitar, and reversed it - then sliced it back in the right order of the melody. I realized the song was only 50 seconds so I tried to make a drastically different chorus with electric guitar that still fit in the track. After that I realized I only had 2 minutes of a song, so I played another electric lead- and sliced it, creating a weird mesh of acoustic and electric guitar that in turn sounded electronic. The pads you hear are actually some fancy classical guitar chords that I stretched twice the length to get a floating feel.

Pretty chill mix and really creative, given what you've said in the comments. Honestly I couldn't tell there was that much going on with the way you did it. Though I'm not sure why you named it Dual Personality, considering it has a rather consistent tone. Cause of the different guitars and beat lines, maybe?

Although it felt like there were a lot of empty spots in the song. It flowed nicely, but I can see where something could have been added.

BoredMusic responds:

Name it that since is started off like a western song, then i switched it up song wise (like 2 personalities). The term duel was as an homage to western gun duels. It was more of a joke for me :) Glad you liked it! If you want, feel free to add to it.
