Quick Win #38

Building Blocks for Composition 1

Here's a quick summary of the main takeaways from this Quick Win!

  • start very simple and build complexity later (by changing scales or any other variable
  • scale tone substitutions let you control the chord complexity: 13 for 5, and 9 for 1
  • the RC5 works excellent if you pursue a mainstream sound


You might want to start with the same variables as explained in the video and change some of the parameters later. Also, you might want to create an entirely different musical context out of the same sketch.
