Another song exploring the OP-Z

Liner Notes

Look — It's another OP-Z[archived] song!

I've been playing the OP-Z for over a year now, and I still have so much to learn. Yesterday I gave my friend a 1:1 workshop on using it to write full songs, and today I decided to explore some of the functionality that is new to me. In this simple composition I played with the performance track[archived], automating changes in that automatically add fills, stereo effects and more. I also use the tape track, which is quickly becoming my favorite since it allows me to chop the sounds in weird ways.

Nice intro, then chopping up the rhythm. I like the development into the bassline and percussion. Really nice development throughout, building and building. I like the ending with things dropping out.

I love that arpeggiated high pitchy thing way in the background. This is really lovely, the melody is evocative and so sweet.

LOVE that intro with the slight dissonance. This builds really nicely, the bass has such warmth to it and listening on headphones the changes to the stereo field add a lot of interesting texture!

Really interesting textures and changes as it morphs into the bass and drums part. Gorgeous melody.
