Quick Win #41

Building Blocks for Composition 4

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

  • you might want to start with an RC and bring in some shifts in selected spots later to create an RP
  • you can even create a bass section on top of your root tones against the treble
  • the lower you place your bass section, the more you want to focus on the strong overtones


Orchestrating the bass section differently from the treble can create a nice contrast (like soft strings below the brass). You might even want to alternate between those sections and let the energy switch between them.
