Amazonia RMX

Post  Hans Scheffler on Mon Dec 29, 2008 12:33 pm

This is a remix of a song by Eric Mouquet, one of the masterminds behind Deep Forest.
The song is from his latest album Deep Brazil.
Vocals and main flute theme are from the original.
I am using Omni for all the synthparts. Drums is Stylus and Omnisphere.

Thanks for watching!


Namaste

hi hans, i appreciate your originality, ...do you use any go to book for jazz , fusion chord voice theory, i sort of hit a wall, ...am learning some 2 5 1 turnaround scales , but need more vocabulary,...eg, maybe altered scales , but not just for turnarounds?

Thanks Wired,
sorry but i dont know any books to recommend but i have some techniques for approaching chordchanges that i can share. Nothing fancy really but maybe interesting for you.
1.Slashchords-every chord no matter how complex, is a stack of simpler chords. f.e. stack Cmaj and Dmaj and you end up with C6/9/11#. That approach makes it much easier for me to memorize complex chords and doubles or triples the number of scales i can play over it.
And it makes it easier for me to come up with fresh relationships between chords that ultimately lead to new progressions.
In my latest tune i started with the following notes in the right hand: Bb,C,F followed by A,C,E.
While the first chord could be interpreted as a Fsus and the second as Amin i tried out different bassnotes until i found that playing a F# underneath the first chord and a F underneath the second one created a very cool relationship between the two.
Ultimately the first chord turned into a F#maj7/5b and the second one into a Fmaj7. C and F can be used in both chords for the melody.

I like to try out "wrong" bassnotes. If i have something like a Aminor7/9 i play a D in the bass to turn it into a Dsus4/7/9/13.
With major chords i put the 9th in the bass or the minor 7th. C/D or C/Bb
With minor chords i use the minor or major third under the root or the perfect 4th. Amin/F or Amin/F# or Amin/D
To get from one chord to the next i like to use chromatic shifts that i sometimes interpret as dominant chord with the major third in the bass or a simple chromatic version of the target chord.
So to go from something like Emin7/A to Fmaj7/G i would use F#maj7/G# but on the way back i would use E7/9b/G# instead.
Countermotion is also fun. In the right hand play Fmaj7 and emin7 and in the bass play G and A. so the bass goes up when the chord goes down.
Using the same root note with two or more chords is cool to
Try Fmin7 and Ebmaj7 over a C
Or try these 4 chords over a deep E
a,d,g
g,c#,f#
g,b,c,e
f#,a,c#,e

Finally-to ensure that any B part(chorus, bridge, middle8) in my song is related to the A part (verse) i will try to have one element to work in both parts even though i might ultimately only use it in one of them or modify its appearance in the second part. It still connects the two parts with an invisible bond.

Hope this triggers some ideas for you.

Hans

On second thought i do have some recommendations for books on harmony.
Get yourself a copy of the Steely Dan complete songbook and study their progressions.
There is a universe of progressions and harmonic inventions in those songs.
Stevie Wonder is another candidate for great progressions-

And of course the good old real book is a great resource too!


cheers

good theory

Post  wired on Thu Feb 12, 2009 7:05 pm

thankx for the time, as these are very helpful to spend some time on, i use voicings of all sorts, but you have listed some interesting ways of going about it, ...ps., do you use ethno instruments of any kind, i hear them in some of your work, even your piano sounds warm., ...i have taiko drums for lows, but i find the midi files that come with taiko from bfd aren't great for world music as the timing and intensity are different from what i'm used to, maybe tympani grooves like the ones in Dead Can Dance are more of what i'm after. again, thank you , i like your productions,

Glad you found something interesting in my post.
I love using ethnic instruments.
In my clips sofar i only have been using Omnisphere.
But i do have a couple of libs for Kontakt with Ethnic stuff like Anthology fromBela D Media, Ethno World 4.
Looking forward to get Silk next.
The warm piano is probably the Dreampiano in Omnisphere.
For Taikos i use the ninevoltaudio libs.
They have great loops too.
