The Rattler Redux / How Habits Can Hurt

edited May 15 in Creations

Thanks to @McD and @JanKun I took another look at this piece. Both these fine fellows had a problem with the drum track. I resisted. I resisted.... but then I listened again and saw I had missed the mark. I was not really hearing the nature of the original track. I just proceeded in my (recently) habitual way... all my tracks need drums (after all, why did I use a metronome when recording?).
But I was wrong... I redid it, removed the drums and added a single DrumJam cello. Less was indeed more. Let all sailors of the iOS seas take heed.... a habit was a good idea dying a slow death. The new, and improved Rattler...

  • It's actually cool to suggest edits and see alternative approaches. Both versions now exist and the comparisons generate additional insights and conversations.

  • @McD ... I deleted the old one from SoundCloud.... no turning back!

  • That's OK. It's your content and deleting is liberating if you change your mind.

    I've had "celebrations of deletion". I created a new blog once called "I dove into Delete."
    after I needed to drop out for a re-start.

  • Call me extremist, but to me even the cello is not necessary...
    There is a moment of magic between 4:05 and 4:25 that reminds me a bit of Léo Delibes L'Aquarium (on "Le Carnaval Des Animaux")
