Lovin' for

A nice upbeat song

Current weather: 13°C (Partly cloudy)

Liner Notes

For this FAWM I wanted to challenge myself to write 14 songs in one session, using a small portable musical instrument that I've been using more and more: the OP-Z. The OP-Z is a drum machine, sampler, sequencer and synthesizer the size of a TV remote control, and I love how it enables me to quickly sketch out song ideas and write full productions.

In addition to the OP-Z, I also used a Korg "mini kaoss pad 2S" to add some effects to the OP-Z, including reverb, filters, and distortion. During January I practiced with the OP-Z and the Korg, trying to make at least a song per day.

I used Titular (http://muse.fawm.org/titular) to generate the titles for the songs, and it really helped my creative process since I tried to interpret the seemingly random titles. For "Lovin' for" I wanted to make a nice upbeat song.

I livestreamed my session to YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YnyxxMnXpA) in case anyone is interested in seeing the workflow with the OP-Z.

The highs are nice and somehow always surprising 💖

love that arp. The OP-z seems to really excel at making those really cool sounding arpeggios.

Love the movement with all of the wonderful arpeggios as a backdrop for the flowing legato melody. It is mesmerizing and very enjoyable!
