Hommage a Quelqu'un (2009)

May 8, 2009 9:11 AM

This is a "cover" of the first track I wrote on Reason, after getting my first midi controller. If you're a fan of Debussy, you might recognize the chords.

The song is mainly an electronic appropriation of the chord progression from Debussy's "Hommage à Rameau". When I first wrote it, I was learning to play the piece on piano, and I thought they'd make a good fit in a sad electronic song.

Besides from changing the song structure and adding a little. I made the parts a bit less "jangly" or high pitched. I also added some sweet arp action.

Very pretty, nice synthiness.

Oh, I forgot to put the original in here. This is it:

It's different, but not too different.

Oh, also, I just wanted to say that your title is the best thing since Marc Ribot's "Requiem for What's-His-Name".

Thanks for the positive comments, guys! I might be submitting another remake since I had so much fun doing this one.
