Silent Night - *hick* a little festive music making
« on: December 23, 2018, 11:16:33 PM »
After having a few *cough* festive drinks I decided to bang out my own version of Silent Night.

Probably not a good idea to do tunes while half cut but tis the season ;D - I think it sounds OK but I'll listen again to it in the morning to see how bad it really turned out, lol :P

Until the next time...

There is almost no way to "destroy" a good melody (if you keep the melody "intact"). It's always "just" another way to interpret something.

Think it is done pretty well for a boozed boy - and done way way ...way better than what I can come up with: nothing ;-). I can whistle but tap with my fingers, but that's all.

I was test listening to my own music for hours yesterday trying to find the bad parts. But I fell a sleep before I could do any work. I also discovered that Roli now has mini boards. Those things seem like they might be useful. I have stil to check if they have a wireless connection like the korg nanokey studio 2 that I got recently for the ipad.

I think in your tune @qube that when the horn(s) come in they kind of feel out of place. Maybe too loud? The song starts and sounds very good.

Yeah, the last little bit is a bit out of place / odd. Moral of the story, drinking and coding = woohoo, drinking and knocking out tunes = uh oh :P

True fact: I can play this on a musical calculator.

5,6,5,3 .... 5,6,5,3 .... 9..9..7.. 8..8..5 .... 6,6,8,7,6.. 5,6,5,3 etc.

Yes, I may have been drinking :-)

True fact: I can put those notes in FL Studio, listen to them for a while and get inspired for a Psytrance track:



Yes, I am dead serious (you might not understand that if Psytrance/Goa is not really your thing ;D )

BTW: Nice work, Qube!
