#2 Sad Dark n Sweet
Title says it all.
Chord experiment, VHDBL soundtrack
This came together in Cubase 5 solely on the idea of taking an inverted FM (my notation for F major), down to Dm (minor), where that low D would just plow through with its mighty D-ness. The following CM and Em walked the key into sharps territory, paving a nice chromatic scale (C,B,Bb) back to the staring FM.
The top keyboard gave a daring Bb to the 3rd CM chord, making a creepier push into the top B for the Em. As it repeats, a mid line emerges for harmonies, followed by the bass outlining the chords in arpeggios.
