I noticed one of the limiting factors in producing my own original electronic music tracks was my lack of the ability to generate a real melody.
So, I did an experiment where I took an existing Mozart Sonata, ripped out a simple progression, and created a simple track around that progression. The result is pretty interesting: Download MP3.
In addition to this, I read up a bit on chord progressions, and came up with a simple note progression and then build on top of that in a fractal fashion, and came up with this result: Download MP3.
It is interesting how fractal in nature music really is. From synthesizing sounds, to creating a melody, to creating a song with transpositions on that melody, to generating a mix of various songs — the principles remain very similar.
* Update: I was pretty hooked on this fractal concept, so I went ahead and created another track: Download MP3.
