Musical Sketchpad, Session Two

Innsmouth Blues

This is a rough version of my Electroplankton composition, so the organizer can have a sample. It uses Rec-Rec extensively, and also a little bit of Lumiloop. I had a version that included Tracy, but ran out of time while doing the actual recording. Also it starts with a bit of a sampled in-joke, which probably can't be included in the final for copyright reasons. It needs more movement, I think, but I like it. I really used Cubase's automation tools, which made a big difference.

So it's a blues song about Lovecraft's The Shadow over Innsmouth. Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!
