Our collaborative entry to the HOME OFFICE contest.

[Production process]

-

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!

    some quick touch-ups before mastering. [note] remember infy, if you should want to export the individual stems for vocals, instruments and drums, that can easily be done in this project by soloing master mixer strips.

    -fixed jarring vocal crossfade

    -slight volume increase on intro part

    -volume automation on sudden chord in ambient outro

    -some chorus vocal mixing, normalizing de-essing

    -added sidechained compressor to instrument bus to make kick and snare stand out some more

    -small changes to outro arrangement

    nice tune, love the ethereal parts. vocals fit great too, like a gentler and not-british Sampha. they're a bit buried especially in the second section

      We ran out of time for the second section, aeiter came in clutch and recorded the last part 15 minutes before deadline haha
