Hey guys, definite WIP here. I've never really tried mixing a rhythm before, I typically just use loops, but for this atmospheric song I really wanted a rhythm that evolved and was more fluid, which you just can't get with loops alone.
That being said, I created the 15/16 opening rhythm, used a loop to transition into the 4/4 but edited it quite a bit, and used another edited loop under it as it developed, and finally mixed in layers of the original 15/16 rhythm.
So I went with a long rhythm for the intro that sounds like 3/4 at first, because I wanted to emphasize the atmospheric "lost" feeling I was going for. I wanted to make it difficult for the listener to latch onto something at first.
I haven't gotten to any of the music part past the 15/16, other than the rhythm itself, but I'm wondering if A) I'm emphasizing the rhythm enough, and B) does the feeling I'm going for work in a positive way? and... C) do my frequencies and positioning of sounds work?
