In this track, like in others this year I am moving from the concept of simple repetitions, that I often used in the previous tracks. Now if I reuse any material, I modify it, making the whole piece not only a meditative pleasure full of repeats, but also more rich in information, when listening to every minute brings something new.
In the sheet music I highlighted notes that were creating dissonances with red and notes that were not used in any dissonances with green.
The other new concept in this track is the inversion of classical harmonic principle: I tend to use dissonances for downbeat and long times, while allowing some consonances in passing notes.
When composing this track I created a first voice (flute or violin) and then built other voices adding consonances or dissonances.
Here I use three new libraries, each of them producing interesting new sound. You can hear, that cello plays soft legato notes exclusively (limitation of the library). Other two libraries show staccato and accents.
All three libraries support legato speed control and thus needed a lot of tweaking of note starts. The result is plenty of hand-shifted note starts, creating a more live groove.
Spitfire Flute Consort includes three short note lengths, which is not very common in today's libraries and which sounds realistic.
8dio adagio violin has many different legato types, which decreases machinegun effect significantly.
Tina Guo library is very melodious and does not need much additional CC dynamics tuning for long notes. I had to move cello notes to the left more than other instruments because of long attacks. Yet cello still sounds a little bit after the tempo. I did not correct it further, because bass in large spaces can be delayed.
All three libraries sounded good to me, although I missed cello accents when it played solo or shorts. I used 2C Aether for violin and frullato flute. Main flute uses T/A/O mics. Cello uses IR reverb, that is included in the library.
