Electropolis: Monthly Wrap-up – Arps, Dynamics & Phrasing, and Rough Mixin'…

Wow, it’s been an entire month since the first Electropolis post and now it’s time for January’s recap! As musicians ourselves, we’ve read and discovered many flaws associated with explaining complex digital music topics within a variety of publications. One of these flaws consist of fifteen to thirty second audio demonstrations that merely skim over the applicate of the topic throughout an entire song. If you’ve ever taken guitar lessons from one of those dudes at the music store, you can see how these very short demonstrations are quite similar to learning a snippet of Van Halen’s “Eruption”. You may learn the technique very well, but can you incorporate it into your own music? Therefore, we’ve discovered that the best way to inspire your musical evolution is by providing an original tune produced with all, and only, the topics discussed. Although seemingly complex, it’s possible to make a very original piece of music by combining a bunch of random ideas. Let’s hear the tune, then revisit and do a little review on what we’ve discussed.
