Our collaborative entry to the HOME OFFICE contest.
We first started this project with the idea of producing a song in the “Open A add4” tuning (DAEAC#E). My first exposure to this scintillating tuning came through math rock/midwest emo music, by artists such as ‘Sleepy Dog’ and ‘Midwest Pen Pals’. I discussed developing a song in this tuning with naut, a good friend and fellow producer who I've worked on projects with previously. He was open to the idea and so began the production of our entry!
If not for Ethan suggesting we collab on this idea of his, I don’t think I would’ve taken part in the competition at all. The timing was not ideal for me but we managed to scrape something together in the end! This new tuning and play style was definitely a challenge for me, but I had fun and learned a lot from the experience. There are a good handful of things I would’ve loved to iron out with more time on my hands, but regardless I am glad we managed to deliver a submission at all!
