Hamoda

This track is somewhat similar in composition method to Fourscore, and was created in an attempt to make a musical “card” for Mother’s Day.  In a similar vein, the phrase “Happy Mother’s Day!” was entered into the DAW’s piano roll, in a font style similar to a 7-pin dot matrix display.  The sequence is then looped and used with several different instruments, primarily a selection of sounds from the Sculpture physical modeling synth (some processed through the Space Designer reverb) and a custom arpeggiated sequence that I created in NLogPoly.  The track is backed with a few drum loops and samples from Logic Pro.  It is a little towards the atonal and discordant side, but has a punchy and direct sound that is definitely growing on me.
