While I don’t tend to have a lot of time to write new music these days (I’m learning how to program for my PhD and doing a lot of editing for my fee gig as an assistant editor, but this isn’t LinkedIn!), I have been writing little fun projects with my students to couch my theory lessons.
One of my students is learning how to employ different drum patterns, and I made a little goofy groove over the very first pattern he learned, the ubiquitous 4-on-the-floor. We decided it would make a good piece for The Video Game That Doesn’t Exist. In this scene, a new, radical frog NPC has come into the picture in order to give us a new skill.
This was written in LMMS, and most of the instruments I used can be found in the main library and the ZynAddSubFX synth. It’s nothing too fancy, but it’s been a while, and it’s about time I showed you a bit of what I’ve been up to!
