Disquiet Junto Project 0154: Groove Unlocked
A new Disquiet project after a long lay-off!
The assignment was to create a track from two locked grooves.
Building on last week’s Disquiet Junto project in which 67 different musicians uploaded as many locked grooves, this week we made new music atop those locked grooves.
I chose two locked grooves from the set at goo.gl/0s4WmM – Mark Rushton’s Depool (Markrushtoncom – Depool-disquiet0153-groovelock) and ooray’s Livewire (Ooray – Livewire-disquiet0153-groovelock). I picked track numbers 44 and 54 from the previous week’s Disquiet project before listening to them, as I was contemplating playing around with time signatures. In the end, I kept the project simple.
Rather than cut the loops up, I rather liked the effect of randomly playing one then setting up Ableton’s follow action to play one or the other after 4 bars. On top of this I created some harmonic counterpoint, mixed and ran the track out to an mp3. Very simple and it felt good to be playing off of Mark and Ted’s tracks.
