Speak Softly

Description
An ambient type piece that I've been working on. It's pretty short right now, and I was thinking about having a collab on this one if anyone wants to add a synth solo. It's got some odd rhythms in it...but that's why I like it! Enjoy!

SPEAK SOFTLY!!!
Oh, sorry. Slick backing for ... something. I really like your use of atypical meters. Great drum work, good production quality, and I like the build. Looking forward to the next version.

cool rhythms
definitely a good sound base, you better get a input device for your guitar so you can finish this one! It needs a trippy lead guitar melody to go over the top of it i think to finish it off.

guitar
I'm working on getting some recording stuff...I'd love to add a trippy guitar lead over this. I will work diligently over winter break to make that happen!

danger drone...
cool rhythm work... the simple drone-synths give a feeling of one of those late-night drives across the golden gate bridge, "too much woman and too little love" on the mind, hoping an all-night drive will help escape the thoughts...

or something like that... anyway, cool beginning, sounds sort of soundtrack-ish. But yes, you could add some more over this, or ask others to try, would be cool!

And a belated welcome to MJs!

ttfn,
Drakonis

late night rhythms
You are quite right with your imagery attributed to the rhythm...late nights...fast cars. This is a very "dark blue" song for me if that makes any sense...so the late night thing really fits. Thanks for stopping by!

I like what you have so far. It feels like it could used in a spy movie where the hero is defusing a bomb or something right before all hell breaks loose. I thing if you added a screaming guitar solo it would be cool

Sounds dangerous.
The cops are following the drug lord, by boat, by plane and just keep missing him. Thanks.

rhythms
i like the rhythms - heard some 6/4 and 10/4 in there - nice

yeah, it sounds like it could use a synth lead alternating with vocals...

but it's pretty complete as is

thanks

You've got a good ear--the beginning and end are 6/4 and the middle is 10/4. Thanks for listening!

Really enjoyed the tune!!

I've returned
I took a little time off as I had lots of schoolwork to do...but that middle rhythm just came to me and I just HAD to make a song out of it haha. Thanks for stopping by, always appreciated.

Like the sycopations

I could
see this as the soundtrack to a John Carpenter movie. I really enjoy this song a lot. I've listened to it at least five times. I keep thinking that some heavy ass guitar would fit nicely in this... but at the same time the intensity is sooooo good as is.

The only gripe is that I wish you would make a 6 minute version.

I've been planning on expanding on this a bit. I'm still trying to decide what kind of direction I want to take it in though. Thanks for listening.

Totally dig the drumming on this. More than any other part, I'd love to take the drumming and use it as a starting point for another WIProg collab. Lots of room for layers. Thanks for offering to add this to the project. Looking forward to working it!

Yep, the drumming really led the way in this one. The last big melody thing came to me when I was playing with some random sequencing, but it would change every time I played it so I just wrote it out by hand. A collab would be a lot of fun on this.
