hare rama buys a llama

track: 01

recorded: 20160922 - 20160926

duration: 3:28

type: active / bass driven / piano themed / heavy rock guitars garage band composition

my first foray into the new garage band is essentially a piece celebrating loud electric guitars, that I have layered onto the track in an almost brutal fashion, but, the immediacy of both the rhythm and lead guitar samples are absolutely undeniable. the piece starts out normally, but when the guitars come in - you know it. that's "kyle" on the drumkit, with myself playing the Liverpool bass guitar manually.

the synth was myself as well, flown in via MIDI from the exquisitely beautiful Animoog synth, the grand piano is actually from garage band, I manipulated the auto play, and removed several notes I didn't like, until it reached the form I needed.

the guitars were an absolute blast to put together, including the crazy evolving effect that overwhelms the track a couple of times after the sort of...almost reggae like section - the entire thing is held together by the mobile bass, and kyle's relentless beat - a false ending with that mad guitar effect leads to a brilliant coda where the themes are all briefly visited again - guitars - piano - synth - guitar effects - and then, it's done.

what an experience - I love garage band! I could not believe you could make music like this with it.

an absolute joy to play, and, some real strings courtesy of garage band, arranged by myself as a very, very short orchestral outro.
