HOW TO CREATE 31 SONGS IN 31 DAYS: DAY 9

DAY 9

This is going to be exciting for me.  A new genre will be the task for the day, Middle Eastern music.  I will study some patterns and techniques in the genre.  I may look towards a trailer version because it seems more exciting to me.


Task for today

Research the scale used in this genre and the instruments most favorable to it. Then set up the template of sounds. Create a song structure from my research. Afterward, create a few melody variations and feel the groove.  


This is exciting because Middle Eastern music uses an Arabic scale. It is exotic and loads of romantic melody lines can be created. Especially when orchestral instruments are added to help define a mood. This is the reason I want to try to make a cinematic trailer version. The song can exude a great amount of emotion with a passionate undertone.


 Well, its time to work, have a blessed day and See you tomorrow on Day 10.
