Title: Apollo Lee – Pushing Forward
Date: January 30, 2015
Software: Ableton Suite 9
Timing: 6:51 @ 124 bpm
According to my calendar, it has been 876 days since Statio Tranquilitatis was released. If you’re keeping track, that’s two years, four months, and twenty-four days. One of my plans for this new year was to write more music and, after a few false starts and unfortunate doubts peeking in the window, I decided to get started on this new track last night and finished it just a few moments ago.
When I listen to it on my iPhone headphones, it’s very clear to me right away that this track is very bass-heavy. I’m planning to give it a better mix-down in the next couple of weeks so the bass isn’t so overwhelming. I found three accent loops in my library of goodies and decided to give them a go, just to see how they felt.
I’m hearing lots of opportunities for remixing or just fixing a couple of things I wish I’d have done better. I’m okay with this very rough version of this track. I’d rather give you something and mark off the item in my calendar than make excuses for another accidentally long stretch of time. In a few minutes, I’ll give it a spin and see how it feels with my monthly mix. Mental note: Post some of the monthly mixes.
