What a fun prompt. I fudged a little bit on starting with a chorus… When I started writing the song, the instrumental hook seemed like it would be the chorus, but now it’s pretty clearly not. (Not to mention I included the whole intro before that section even comes in! What a schmuck!)
Primitive percussion was another fun thought experiment. Did it mean using old instruments like shakers and things, or using tribal percussive patterns? I opted to find samples of wood and stones and animal growls. I figure those things have been around for a bit.
The Jurassic lyrical inspiration is that the song basically is about a T Rex who is brought back to life by scientists, and he escapes and starts hunting them while simultaneously facing an existential crisis.
Fun tidbit – I recorded the guitars through a tiny battery powered Pignose amplifier! The drums are a combination of loops from a sample pack that I sliced up and combined with one shots of snares and stuff.
Looking for feedback on
Does this feel like realistic behavior for a reanimated T Rex?
