Things Get Bitter

And here’s the one for July.

A schizophrenic piece.  I apparently did not know if I wanted something light or dark so I ended up with something that went back and forth for 4 and an half minutes until I decided to just end the discussion with a short reprise of the initial riff giving it a kind of shave-and-a-haircut sudden ending.

Then I couldn’t bring myself to post it.

Although it seemed like an ending it also seemed artificial and forced.  A “thank god it was all just a dream” ending.  So for a week I hoped I’d come up with something better, without making it longer, and I couldn’t.  So I removed the reprise and let it just end where it ended.

Why doesn’t art just do what you want it to do?

This was done entirely in Reason 4.  Used sampled and synthesized strings, sampled piano, and some xylophone-like sound I came up with on the new Thor module.

And with that, I’m back on schedule.
