TigerM - TigerMvintage - Songs of Legend
“While working as an Office Manager and Secretary at MGCM,
for his stepbrother's Music Conservatory,
Tiger was introduced to the Roland Boss DR-5 Rhythm Section.
He'd spend hours on the machine and... often more than
eight hours a day producing arrangements...
Using the... Roland Boss DR-5 Rhythm Section, in a single month,
Tiger would produce over 250 unique arrangements.” [some call them "beats!" ^^ ^~]
This is one of the first tracks on the DR-5 that I began
halting recording session and coming back to (composing
original instrumental sequence sets) over and over sometimes
so that I would remember them to play without error during recording.
I got good at it too!
The rhythm I had timed to a "second"
playing it in one recording without spill.
[ Not a single 'displaced' rhythm or note!]
Realtime recording while cassette ran writing my music to tape;
I sometimes wanted parts with 'just the beat' I did or
"just the melody" I had played but doing that meant deleting
some of the songs [off of the DR-5] I still wanted
to record to tape--which I did not want to do since
I was doing songs I wanted to write to tape so others could hear.
And so instead of deleting DR-5 composed recordings from Roland
Boss I would 'replay' (re-perform] in realtime to cassette--
The beat or meldoy as I memorized playing
THEN begin "the whole song" (all sequences together)
then align the tape albeit without "visual" or "audio" cues
for " my special replay " (re-performance without recording the song I notes wanted).
[I did not ever record with it but Later I learn about "Quantize"
though it seemed to not work well for me while composing.
However, I later DO learn a lot of things
that DID work well while song composing on the Roland Boss DR-5]
The melody after I played it lead me itself to a "J.R.R. Tolkein"
kind of tangent in thinking of stories on Dragons and Wizards, Elves and Hobbits. =3
[at 16 I used to watch the animated "Hobbit" with others almost weekly ^^=]
Although "Star Wars" also had my attention at 16--
I thought of "The Never Ending Story" and like-style adventures
that were about length-long journeys and fantastic trials and quests.
And so I named it.
After composing "Songs of Legend" I thought
the song could be an interesting tune to put a Chorus to
about mythiological tales or to rap-a-verse or write to.
I certainly hope you enjoy " Songs of Legend: "
an analog audio tape revisit [audio-to-cassette] and DR-5 music
adventure now digital and seventeen years [as of this writing]
celebrated initially on cassette now online years after 2000. =)
Remain Remarkable! And
Thank You For Listening =^_^=
