This song happened a little

Gate on Track 2's Drums, Sidechained to Track 3
by accident last night; I was just playing around w/ the Prophet V demo, and wound up creating a strange, dissonant sound, and automated the mod-wheel effect to create this rhythmic sort of swell (Track 1) which I liked a lot, so I just started adding on top. Track 2 adds some drums, using the Newscool instrument, included with the Native Instruments Komplete Start package (totally free). After adding Track 3, which provides the main progression, pictured below, I wound up putting a gate on Track 2, and sidechaining it to Track 3, so it only comes in with Track 3, which made for a cool effect. I really liked the dissonance that Track 3 added against Track 1; although the progression is just two note parts, back and forth, the effects built into the Strobe2 instrument add some extra notes and harmonics, which provide the strange dissonance.

Track 3, Main Progression

Listen to Broken Borg here...

Tracks 4, 6, 7 ad 8 all add more layers, which don't play

Track 6, Dissonant Line
often, but instead are sort of staggered. track 4 adds some major and minor 2nd stabs, which come in towards the beginning of each section. Track 6 adds a single, strange, dissonant line, pictured to the left, towards the middle of each time around. Track 7 uses an arpeggiated synth, which plays through some big chords, just long enough to go through 2 full octaves, before cutting off. This just adds some cool ascending little lines throughout. Track 8 just accents the 1st beat of each section with a really spacey pluck sound, which bends downward, just adding a texture and less of a harmony part. Finally we have Track 9, which are more kicks that add a 1/16th note part, descending in velocity till it fades out, and Track 10, the hi-hat rhythm. I think the hi-hats need to be doubled or boosted a bit, but I like the pattern.

Hope you like the creation! This is a strange one, but I really like the idea, so I'll keep working on it, and see what happens!
