This session is from last night,

Track 4, Droning on a Dmin7
and really doesn't have much happening for the entirety of it. I started with a chord progression, with the Matrix-12, and recorded Tracks 2 and 3, which are the same progression, just staggered so there isn't a sudden cutoff between loops. I then added Track 4, which just drones along on a Dmin7 the whole time, though the synth has a bit of movement in the sound. Finally we have Track 1, another Matrix sound, which is the beepy, high pitched sound; this is covered in delays and FX all made by Valhalla: the Supermassive, Freq. Echo, and Space Modulator. Track 1 definitely plays WAY too often, but I figured I could carve away at it, and hopefully have it happen sporadically, feeling a bit more random. I was thinking this would be a good basis to start adding things to, hopefully giving it all a bit of a random, generative sort of vibe, even though technically it may not be. We'll see what happens tonight, Part 2 tomorrow!
