Fifth Element

Had a lot of fun with this one. Tried about 10 different things before landing on this. My original inclination was to go for a kind of homogenous Imogen Heap feel, which is where i think i eventually ended up. No idea what the lyrics are… something about breathing and a hotel.

Looking for feedback on

What would you want to hear from an expanded version of this?

it seems that i forgot to comment on any of this assignment’s submissions. but somehow, a few days ago, this song entered my brain on its own, and ive been humming it around the house and marvelling at how seemingly unrelated the synth line is with the vocals but somehow it works so well. Like when the synth comes in at the beginning, i had no idea that this type of cascading vocals would come in like that with that melody and rhythm. but it does and its fuckin cool.

love this one, playful and nostalgic. i second ryan – a bangin drop into a full rhythm section would be pretty great

Oof, I love this vocal melody. And that playful rhythm on loop 2 and loop 4.

Re: expanded version — um, an absolutely banging rhythm section. Think you could be into that? Countermelody on some kind of organic instrument over the synths, too. Maybe for a B section. Yum.
