Hey Everybody! How’s it going? Hope you all are awesomely well! I’ve got some BRAND SPANKING NEW MUSIC FOR YOU ALL TODAY! This brand new piece is inspired by one of my favourite mobile games, “Choices: Stories You Play” and one of my favourite books within that game, “It Lives in the Woods”. The “It Lives in the Woods” in “Choices: Stories You Play” game is a horror themed book, and that’s what I wanted to compose and put down in the form of a new original music piece. The original piece I came up with was something I called, “In The Woods”, and it all started with a classical piano pattern and patch through GarageBand. The piano was the beginning and the main instrument that I wanted in the new composition. I raised the octave 1 or 2 times, just to give it a higher pitch and a brighter tone. I went from there and added a pattern with the “Supergroup Lead”, for a little extra oomph and flavour. It’s also to add a slight science fiction element, so there’s that, too! The bass line and bass patch is from the “Exoplanet” patch within GarageBand. It’s got a short, punchy, VERY NOTICEABLE feel. The pattern consists of half notes, eighth notes, and some quarter notes going down in a scale. One of my favourite bass lines I’ve written on one of my favourite pieces I have written, composed, produced, and performed. Those are the main synth patterns and lines within this track, this composition, and from there, I moved onto composing the drums. The first part of the drum kit was the clap from the “Hacienda” kit in GarageBand. The pattern was a lot of sixteenth notes, quarter notes, and eighth notes. The objective for the drum kit was a dance, club, and pop feel, and I just kept building on top of that. The kick drum was next, and with that pattern and patch, it was much the same of the “Hacienda” clap, just with 2 or 3 extra notes added. I wanted to then add a shaker pattern, and used the shaker from one of the stock kits, before the update within GarageBand for the iPad, the “Big Room” kit, which was again much the same of the clap and kick drum patterns, just more straight ahead. The last thing I put in this new original instrumental beat composition was the symbol pattern, which consisted of mainly sixteenth notes, eighth notes, and lastly a few quarter notes. The symbol was used and written for the composition to act as that “ONE LAST THING” or really the thing that it seemed to be missing. So, I added it, and the rest is history! “In The Woods” is easily one of my favourite compositions I have ever put together, and like I said, it’s inspired by one of my favourite mobile games, “Choices: Stories You Play” and one of my favourite books within that game, “It Lives in the Woods”. Here it is in all its glory! I hope you all enjoy this latest new original instrumental beat composition piece! Thanks everybody! Talk to you all again soon!
