Heartache

Though I haven't really done any work on this track in months, I've been meaning to post it for some time.

It's divided into two sections: an electronic, downbeat part and a traditionally orchestrated overture.

For the first part, I've often found a heart beat at 120 beats per minute to be one of the most compelling rhythms to write around, especially when juxtaposed against heavily synthesized instruments.

The second half started as a simple string section that evolved into an overture for the album-to-be. Since so many of the songs are in the same key, I tried working them all together. I can barely claim to be a musician, let alone a composer, but see how many of melodies you can pick out if you're bored. Gold stars awarded to those who have been listening to enough Maybe Bomb to hear them all. What fun!
