BEAT #480

By  QJé composer

'BEAT #480' started life, actually on GarageBand. It was before I got back into composing properly. In other words, I needed to find the right software for me and it wasn't going to be GarageBand, although I'm still grabbing particular sounds from it. And eventually, I found Studio One from PreSonus, which I use now.

  • When the ping ponged synth bass kicks in at 1:20 I see Dr. Frankenstein plugging the electrodes into the terminals on his monsters neck. The creepy chords you selected are haunting.. Very cinematic feel here. Could be part of a Rob Zombie score… Quick. Write something that sucks so I can say negative things.. LOL… Keep up the good work…

  • Intriguing and enTRANCEing. Your brain wants to take it apart and reveal its secrets, but the patterns are mesmerising and shifting in both rhythm and harmony. Play it in your car and the speakers will beg you to pump up the volume!

    • Hey Chris. Thanks so much for this. This is one of my first efforts since my very average song-writing in the ’70s and ’80s. I’m loving being back at the coal-face of music, and it’s even better to be appreciated. I have an audience of real live people! Yay! Thanks again.

    Hi I'm QJ - a composer of music and sonic art.
    My music is mostly dark, cold and unsettling.
    A theme park full of intense, scary rides, and sonic thrills.

    It's sometimes about social issues I feel strongly about.
    It's designed to elicit emotional responses.

    I hope you enjoy some of it.
    Please do leave your comment: I want to learn about how you react to music - especially mine (even if it makes you uncomfortable).

    Enjoy the roller-coaster! ... and big thanks.
