Caisligh Alpha


Author Comments

I wrote this a little while ago for a 3-4 piece band.

(Caisligh is Irish for Castle)

Heavily influenced by Progressive Rock (ie: the Mars Volta, can you tell? lolz)

What's kind of interesting is that though there is pretty crazy time signature/subdivision going on throughout the piece, the most difficult area to write/play is right in the first 4 bars of the piece.

The bass/drums are playing microtime, right off the bat. Literally if they are played any different or in synch, the music would not line up properly.

Anyway, enjoy, head bang, and all of that fun stuff. Now that NG has updated it's Audio Policy I'm definitely going to be posting a lot more stuff that I haven't posted and it gives me inspiration to write more too!

This is very proggy!!

Hey this is awesome! I particularly was drawn to the name for some inexplicable reason. hehe. i really like the strong midtones of this lead guitar. the softness of the drums really match the midtone brightness of this lead guitar and all of the melodies are very inspirational, motivating, and dream like. everything just fits, its well built, like a castle... hehe Thanks for the song !

Hey @Boss, I appreciate that positive feedback. It's been a while, but I remember struggling getting the tempo to align properly in this track. It has this kind of... twisted/knotted pulse that's difficult to lock into. When you get grab it, it feels nice. I liked the voicings though the stretches are pretty nuts, and it sounds a bit robotic, but I was really happy wiith how this came out too. Not a problem sharing!
