The Bells - Music in progess

A new track in progress called The Bells.

It's starting point was to explore metallic sounds in any way I could; through frequency modulation, ring modulation, delays, piezo mikes and drivers, spring reverbs etc.

This idea then became merged with my work as an illustrator on Charles Dickens short story, 'The Chimes'.

Here are the first two mixes. The beat was made by tapping a high hat with fingers and a brush. In the second mix I beefed the bass beat by making a low pass duplicate track and mixing it in, whilst also using it as a side chain of a noise gate on a oscillator making a bass tone.

The Bells - mix 1
The Bells - mix 2
