Goodness. Ever have those days where words just come out of you in an utter random order? Like, not even an actual sentence?
And no, I don’t have a hangover!
It’s just old age people. Just old age.
Kidding. Not THAT old.
Let’s just blame the humidity here in Singapore instead (this works for any problem in fact).
What I had INTENDED to share with you in today’s video, and which didn’t quite come out, is that I’m working with a set of intentional “limitations” this month to create my new song.
I’ve done this before and it’s a really fun way to both challenge myself, as well as be creative within a specific set of boundaries.
The way I’ve done this is by working with a song template from Abletunes.
At Abletunes they create fully arranged, mixed and mastered songs that you can open in Ableton to learn exactly how they were made. You can see how the instruments were layered, what parts they’re playing, which FX were used, which automation was applied and so on.
And then, you can tear the whole thing apart and use the sounds for your own projects in any way you like. Super cool.
