Constantly Optimistic


I get a lot of writers block trying to come up with words to sing, so for this song I jumped between old Evernote notes and mix-and-matched words to give myself some deep, deep lyrics.

The piece is a two-track structure, one clean track with an acoustic guitar tuned to EG#BF#BD# to get a cool open sound for the verse and a second duplicate track processed through Ableton’s Corpus. I used Corpus to model string material tuned to G# to create a drone throughout the song.

The outro is a loop of the chorus exploring Ableton’s Grain Delay effect through different amounts of spray occurring at different frequencies.

I enjoyed writing this pop/noise/drone piece and I’ll hopefully continuing pursuing more lengthy noise/drone pieces.
