I didn’t know what the chords would be. I did each part separately, randomly hovering around an F major chord. Played it, liked it, recorded it, uploaded.
My first piano teacher taught me music theory, between the ages of 7-9. Hated it. Once I moved on to another teacher, I stayed FAR AWAY from music theory.
I suspect most of what I do will be more like that other one. This was a test of:
a) using 32nd notes as “smallest grain”, chaining them together for longer notes. I like that method and will do that again.
b) moving octaves each part around until one ‘sounds like’ a bass line, a melody, etc.
So without much effort, it sounds like something that would comfortably fit in an old game.
Making it “sound standard” was my challenge and I was surprised I could. But it’s not normally what I do. I prefer awkward sounds.
