I’ve been working on a few concepts that didn’t pass muster. Dead ends. I think at a certain point I’ll probably go back to them and see if they can be untangled and something made of them. At the moment, I’m moving on.
The first piece that is building momentum is something I’m calling Time Capsule. I found a cool rhythm and started playing a melody over it. As an effect in the intro I used a sound file from what appears to be from chatter on an Apollo mission. As the piece develops, I am finding spots for more voices as effects. I am now using recognizable voices as the thread for the piece. So far, Miles, JFK, and Einstein. Heavy reverb puts them into the background and gives it a historical feel. Hence the name Time Capsule.
