Trance: Bass and Progression

January 22, 2009 General News 0 Comments

Today I worked on a generative module for trance-style bass and a progression module for trance-style chords. The bass is relatively simple, most trance just uses a heavy octaving bass that holds a steady beat. As for the progressions, trance usually keeps it pretty simple and almost always in a minor key.

I've got some really simple results out of the bass and progression modules, culminating in a really simple cheesy piece that inspires the urge to bang one's head repeatedly against a brick wall to the beat of the bass. Nevertheless, progress is progress. You have to start somewhere.
