Apollo Lee 52 Tracks in 52 Weeks


Title: Apollo Lee – Quiescence
Date: February 22, 2008
Software: Logic Pro 8
Genre: Ambient
Timing: 8:00 @ 40 bpm

What I Like About It

  1. I like the harmonic stack (Am7 Dm7 Cm7 F7). It’s consonant and still has some dissonance at the same time.
  2. There are a few deep pedal tones, especially F.
  3. The chords mesh together easily, no matter which voices I pick in which combinations.
  4. The instrument I’m using is beautiful and doesn’t linger on note transitions.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. Some notes distort slightly, even at low volume.
  2. I didn’t try to incorporate the mod wheel, or even program it in. This would have been fairly interesting.
  3. I could have done much more with the harmony—specifically, building and releasing tension with dissonance.
  4. Many of the transitions are either overly loud or chords that dissipate abruptly.

Note: These are rough drafts. Constructive criticism is welcomed, of course.
