There is no way to know how much a mother loves it child. In this photo i just capture a glimpse of it, While she was carrying her child starring at the ocean.

wou! I can really imagine the scene with this music. There is something behind that piano intro that makes me feel of a mother with her child. It's awesome how different instruments can be applied to different scenes, people, and situations. Once again the photo, not only suggested melodies and atmospheres, it also suggested instruments and arrangements. Very nice job Ricky!

Here is my composition for image #2. I see a lady and her two kids living a very hard life. She's reached a hard realization that she's now all alone and it's going to be a very tough road ahead for her and her kids.

Just several layered guitars and a simple drum beat. It could use a nice bass line, better drums and a refined theme/melody.

This is fantastic mate! The vibe of this track is unique. I listened to your composition while watching the photo and for moments it was real, it was moving. There is something special in your track that reminds me to the greatest modern tv series (this happened to me earlier at this workout with another composition). It doesn't sound like music in the scene, or in the person's minds, it sounds like an incidental music for a movie or series. Did you noted it?

What did you feel while you were composing this idea? how was the process?

It's so cool to read this. There are two dimensions on this workout. The first one is to see the picture and compose what comes to mind, the second one is to play the other guys ideas, while watching the photo and feel it. smile.gif

26 seconds of pure majesty. I have to be honest with you, the combination of phrases and tone (I can't notice if you are using and effect of something in your lead guitar) gave me chills while I was listening. I love your take, and I would love to listen to an extended version of this one. Not a full song, but maybe a minute version.

How was the composition process?

Actually considering that took me around an hour, pretty simple. Was rather weird that the more I do the creativity/collabs, I tend to hear more and can toss them out.

Been listening to tons of Buckethead lately and always loved how emotional his music can be with simple lines.

So I figured be like everyone else and use the typical chord combos G,C,A. Then was like that's way to happy lets add an F to bring it from the light into some darkness. Kind of like the picture holds, as if they have something tragic they are walking away of with remembering what happened yet, glad to still have one another.

Then I have a kind of organ sound added in to give a bit of a backing to bring out more than just the notes I used from the chords to fill in some space. As for the lead, I was just clicking patches to get something to offset the tone to stand out but not trying to control the entire track.

As for the lead patch it had a Compressor, Pedal Pitch, Reverb, and a Delay kind of blended. Like I said tons of Buckethead, odd effects yet makes an impact!

Thanks for this post mate. It is a very good auto analysis of your creation and this will inspired other students for sure. The pedal pitch is what is giving your lead tone a very special sound. I thought in Buckethead but also in Frusciante when I heard your tune.

Thanks again for joining this workout and for sharing the full experience.

Thank you gab smile.gif when I looked at the photo I pictured the women was thinking about something. The mood of the photo seemed a bit sad like she was waiting or maybe wondering. Because of that I wanted to chose a minor tonality, and give it a bluesy feel. Then I turned my attention to the child and wanted to give the sound some atmosphere and wonder, so I added a violin, wich was really fun to work with.
You mentioned incidental music, I tried to picture the photo as a end shot to a story and made a story up in my head smile.gif

When you say greatest modern tv series do you mean breaking bad? If so I'm actually sitting here watching it again from season 1 cause my girl has never seen it and she watched 1 episode on Netflix got hooked and now I get to relive the series. biggrin.gif ,wich is cool such a great show, not to mention I can dip out while her attention is taken and jam. laugh.gif

Alrighty, had a good run of playing and thoughts arise. So without hesitation round 2! 1 minute long as asked for. smile.gif

Hi mate! Thanks for this fantastic description! It's very interesting to know how you took the decisions regarding tonality, instruments, sound, etc. You both composed and arranged this tune with the photo in mind and I can really feel it. This workout opens a new door in composition and I hope that it adds some more deepness into your future music.


and yeah, I was talking about Breaking Bad for example. biggrin.gif

hahaha this is killer!! You did it again! Are you used to compose music with this quality? Buckethead would be proud of having composed this tune man. When everything exploded I imagined drums... rolleyes.gif

Congrats for your great job!

I've never really made anything over a 30 second loop with some soloing. I kinda blame the Kemper for the quality tho, it is so easy with plug in play. I just EQ a high/low pass in the DAW and that's pretty much it.

laugh.gif At the drums... I made the same kinda comment myself yesterday!
