RUN! It is the Hemiola Monster!!!! We just need to get to the bar! It doesn’t seem to want to cross the bar! Oh my GOD! It has friends!! No wait, that’s just a standard clave pattern… (no, I’m not explaining this description OR what is wrong with my head.)
You threw a golf ball at me. But I saw that coming, so I had a tennis racquet handy. Then you threw a running chainsaw at me. But I saw it coming, so I had a plexiglass safety cage handy. I see that rabid ferret behind your back… I’ll be in the car.
Holy smoldering tenor sax, Batman!! You want to set a mood? This is your track! It just keeps building and building! The sheet music for this recording is a post-it that says “noodle in F Minor.” Such is the power of a real musician! You can just give them notes like that… and get music like this!
It hurts my brain to switch from english words to symbols. Try to read these words and symbols out loud quickly: hyphen-slash-backslash/dash/-\hyphen//hashtag_octothorpe#- Crazy, right? That had nothing to do with this piece of music. I’m just sharing.
This is my favorite piece that perfectly captures a slightly grown-up sound, but still sounds like a 1990s-era action-drama.
Old Way: Synthesized Electric Piano
New Way: Actual EP Recordings that are built into virtual instruments that are then put through a lot of processors to make them SOUND like Synthesized Electric Pianos.
Old Way: Synthesized Ocarina
New Way: Assemble recordings of an ocarina player, and then make a virtual instrument that captures beautiful expression and legato lines… turn off all that fancy stuff and play it like a crappy synth.
